    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    well i had my first three month check up today and my ca-125 is elevated. It was 20 in march and now it is 2000!!!! I guess I failed my treatment. more blood work tomorrow and scans on Friday. I am really bummed because I thought I bet it :( I was told during treatment that I didn't want a recurrence in the first year because it wouldn't be a good sign and I have a very large jump . very scared right now!!!
