Fantastic First, "Life After Chemo" Dr. appt.

Hello everyone...
Well yesterday i had my first, "life after Chemo", doctor appointment with my oncologist, and i felt that it was a very good, very positive, discussion.
She did more blood work so that i can use my last ca125 number as my baseline number and i need to go for a catscan to be used as my baseline after chemo.
Basically she was very pleased with my progress and said that because my ca125 number went down sooo quickly, that was a very good sign. We are truly hoping for no reoccurances. of course she said that no one can predict the future, but the longer we are in remission the better. She also recommended that i see a nutritionist to discuss anti cancer nutritional supplements. I asked her about the weight gain that i seem to be having and she said that i have triple whammy happening. one, the chemo could put weight on, two, not having my period any more could put weight on, and three, not smoking anymore. Oh well........
We also spoke about my actual pathology report from the surgery in april ( i was afraid to ask before this time) I know that it was dumb of me but......anyway, my tumor was basically in sack in the ovary but it was said to be stage 3 because some sandy particles were in the abdomen wall. She called it millary disease(am sure i did not spell that right) which is much better than a caking. The chemo was to get rid of the particles and we think it did. The pathology report also showed that the cells mimiced those of normal cells which she said was good.
We also talked about lots of new treatments. Ovarex, for one sounds very promising. So those of you who have had reoccurances ......HANG IN THERE....lots of new things are on the horizon. Thank you everyone for your support.

It seems like yesterday you were starting chemo!!! And now it is finished.
Way to go and congratulations!!!! All in all, wasn't it easier than you thought it would be? Before you know it, those eyelashes and brows will be appearing. Get ready to shave your legs.
It sounds like you had a low grade tumor. Good for you! I'm sure that news makes you happy when you think about the future.
Are you considering ovarex?
Hope you are celebrating this weekend.
