Into the Belly of the Beast...


this is a phrase I use often when thinking about this cancer...it's the belly of the beast. The beast has returned. At this point the CA125 has jumped from 8 to 38 in two months, but more importantly, I have been symptomatic for a few weeks now and within the last few days the symptoms are more noticeable. The doctor has ordered a CT scan for 6/20 and I see him on 6/25. We both need to see how much is there and where it is--my guess from symptoms is that we'll see it on the colon again and the peritoneum. I am already leaning in one direction for what to do next, but can't be sure until we know what we're dealing with.

Oh ((((Margaret))))))))
Dammit!!!!!! Are they sure its not the UTI that raised the CA like you mentioned yesterday?!!!
I am so sorry to hear this. As much as we gripe about these checkups, they truly are a good thing, as this is obviously picked up very early, and they will be able to get it quickly I am sure.
I wish they could get you in sooner for the scan so you are not waiting so long. Waiting is so hard. Good that you have the appt. with the onc. shortly after though.
Margaret, please know you are in my thoughts and I am praying very hard for you. We are all here for you!!
Huge hugs!!!!!

WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK.

I AM GLAD YOU ARE HAVING THIS TEST DONE AS IT WILL INDEED SHOW WHATEVER IT IS THAT IS BOTHERING YOU.
THIS DOESN'T HAVE TO BE CANCER AGAIN YA KNOW, COULD BE ANYTHING.
TRY AND STAY CALM AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS FIRST.

Hugh s Margaret {{{{{Ellen}}}}

My heart is with you tonight!!!!! It truly is a beast and I hate it!!!!!!
Do you no longer think the ca125 is elevated due to the UTI?
And abdominal symptoms perhaps adhesions?
I am sorry you have to wait so long for the CAT. Darn, darn, darn!!!!!!
Please know you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
But if it is back Ellen, you are one strong lady! And I know you will be prepared to do battle again. And we will all be here, behind you 100%.
Stay strong and determined!!
I just need to say, if there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.
I know that sounds trite, but I truly mean it!!

Dear MARGARET !

I will pray that the CT-scan shows only good results and that if they repeat the blood test - the CA125 - everything goes back to normal again.

Please, stay strong and know that we are all praying for you.

Much love and hugs,


Lana

Hi Margaret

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I too must wait for ct scan results. Meanwhile I know the terrorist within, while weakened, still lives. Best of Luck.

Love,

Amy
