    Well it's me again! Yesterday my sister. Had her 3 month c125 results and the numbers were 16 up from 11.on to the surgeon to see if osteomy can be reversed. The surgeon was vague. She has a melon size hernia, infact 3 hernias. She could 't tell the surgeon even what stage cancer she has. Stage 3c primary peritoneum.She refuses to read the pathology report. She thinks she will have a reversal and live happily ever after. This is serious and all of you will never realize how you have helped me help her. I am a very positive person and things aren't looking to swift for this reversal.my sister is hysterical and I am at a total loss as to how to help her! It will be 12 months Nov.1st She says she cannot accept this osteomy or hernia, cancer seems 2ndon her priority list. Your support is all I have to hang on to,and I thank everyone for taking the time to respond. I don't get on here to often but I am trying. God Bless everyone on your journey,you are in my thoughts andprayers.

      A CA-125 result under 36 is considered normal, however that doesn't necessarily mean that she is cancer free. Lately my CA-125 numbers have been staying around 10. My doctor still gives me regular CA125 blood tests to look for trends - initially monthly, now every two months. If the CA-125 numbers tend to go up each time the test is given, then that is an indication that the cancer is reoccurring or spreading. If the CA-125 numbers tend to go down or hold steady, then that is a sign that it is going away or not present.

      great information from Cindy, in addition to that, helping her can be a whole lot of just being there to help, be concerned, help her with the little things. Small things start to feel like huge things to you as you are fighting. At times I want to just melt down when stress of some things build up. durning "normal" times those same things would just be water off a ducks back.
      Thanks for being there for her, I know she appreciates it, if she tells you or not. Your a good sister!
      Best of luck to both of you, hope she comes through the treatments great.
