I’ve had a happy 3 months of good health since recovering from chemo, and yesterday at my check-up appointment the news was terrific! Scans showed the tumours have shrunk further and now all are smaller than 2cm in diameter. My CA125 (cancer marker in the blood test) is now 6. That’s very low. So no worries for now – celebrations!
Already I’m celebrating this month because it’s 5 years since my diagnosis with ovarian cancer. It’s a wonderful milestone for those who can say cancer-free for 5 years, but with ovarian cancer, even survival to 5 years is amazing. I won’t quote the ghastly stats – they’re easily found on the internet and prominently displayed on posters and billboards in the ovca awareness campaign. It is a sad situation, as I have also experienced with the tragic loss of some fellow patients along the way. But enough gloom. I’m rejoicing that I feel fabulous and full of energy.
I’m overjoyed to be announcing happy news at this time of year to cheer you all, my cherished supporters – family, friends, neighbours and fellow survivors. Thank you! xxx
