Friday, November 16th 2012 - Check Up!!!!

I went to have my first routine check-up, of the next two years that I will be monitored, and I am happy to report I got an A+ today!!! When I walked into the office they didn't even recognize me at first. They said I am a completely different, and MUCH healthier, looking person and that I look great!

I had a pelvic done which was normal, and my incision is healing nicely. According to my doctor, my CA-125 (cancer blood test) is only 1 point above normal, but that was only five weeks after surgery. My doctor is anticipating that level to fall again when I am seen again at the end of January.

I got a note enabling me to return to my weekend job and I'm really happy about THAT because I am bored to tears at home now. And she said that I'm ready to start looking for a job in my field.... didn't tell her I already started on that. LOL

I have been walking on my treadmill every other day and increasing the time spent on it as well as speed. I feel I'm at a good point and my stamina is up enough to give me insomnia! I know when enough is enough and to take it easy though. I'm eating healthier and have increased my water intake. I still won't lift anything heavy for at least another month when I'm feeling more confident in my abilities.

So! That's about it for now. I probably won't post again until my next check up.

I hope everyone has a great holiday season. I know that I have a lot to be thankful for next week!

Thanks for listening! God Bless & love y'all!!!!

Monday, November 5th, 2012.... CA 125 Test Results.

I went for a blood test approximately a week or so ago to test the cancer level in my blood stream. It's called a CA 125 test. Everyone has a normal range of about 0-30. Dr, Fiorica told me that he has seen this number go into the thousands on some cancer patients. I thought mine was 144, come to find out today it was over 400 before the surgery.

I got a call from his office's medical assistant today and the results of my test came back. I'm now at 33. THAT IS AWESOME!!!!

The review from John Hopkins is also back confirming the borderline results Dr. Fiorica found about the mass. There is no plan of action as of yet as to how he is going to proceed about the chemo in my file. He is in surgery today but his medical assistant is going to ask if he has one and whether she can call me with it or will I have to wait until my appointment on the 16th.

Good news make me happy :) I'm praying I won't need chemo.

Thanks for listening! God Bless! Love y'all!!! :)
