Visiting the doctor has become a routine activity for me since being diagnosed with cancer. Tonight's visit comes on the heels of having had a PET scan which found no sign of cancer in my body. To me this news was received with champagne celebration. However I hadn't heard the doctor weigh in until tonight. While the various tests give the doctor nothing to treat, his concern is that my CA-125 number keeps going up. I hadn't thought this more than a "mis-read" due to the fact that numbers can be inconclusive where nature is concerned. But he has a point. Why does this number keep going up? Hmmmm?
I will continue on the trial and the numbers will be monitored. I have every faith that this number game will come to naught. It is the doctor's job to worry 'bout such things, I've got better things to do because I know there is nothing to worry about.
