dr appt on 8/9

Well, tomorrow I see the gyn/onc again; since he's been on vacation, I have had a CA-125 which came back high at 92; also had an abdominal/pelvis CAT Scan - no results yet - I'm so scared to find out the results; I am a breast cancer survivor so not only could this CAT show any mets from that but he's also looking at what's going on in and around my right ovary-ultrasound shows an enlarging (now 6 cm) "septated cyst"; also, my uterus is enlarged and thickened; GYN did an in office uterine biopsy 2 1/2 weeks ago and all was negative. I know he's gonna say surgery ASAP; I just wanna hear that my CAT is normal also; 10:00 a.m Monday can't get here soon enough. I know this is minor when so many of our sisters are having their surgeries tomorrow and I wish them all well also.

Hi Gloria

Waiting is THE worst--that's when our imaginations take off and we think the worst. Your high CA125 may be due to endometriosis or even an inflammation or infection somewhere. Fortunately, you're seeing a gyn/onc, which is who you should have if there's a suspicion of cancer. Your concerns aren't minor--they're very real. Tomorrow you'll know--and while that can be scary, once you know you can put a plan into action with your doctor.
