Dear Doctors Tracy & Marion,
I am a 20 year breast and ovarian cancer survivor. I have had 80 radiations and lost my hair three times. Currently I have been in full remission since surgery and chemo for ovarian cancer this last year. As of the last few weeks my blood tumor marker count they call it a CA125 has escalated from an 8 to an 800 to a 2000. I feel good and this count is all that is wrong , my other labs and CT’s are coming back clean.
Any insight on how to deal with these numbers. They alone are a worry. otherwise I am doing ok. I feel any more surgery or chemo will be to much for my system because their are just no records for a survivor in my condition , and I am under full care of a great team of experts. We’re all puzzled. [Read more…] about The Shift Doctors Give Tools for Breast and Ovarian Cancer Patients & Survivors
