Today’s the Day

Its 8am and the day i dread every 6 months is here. My check up with Dr Bashir my Oncologist.

It’s not the going to see him that i don’t like, far from it, he’s a lovely man. No its the examination and when he tells me my CA125 blood results. I had my bloods taken last Monday at my doctors and as soon as i arrive today Dr Bashir will let me know what number it is. Last April it was 7  and in October it was 8. I really hope it hasn’t rose any higher.

Scary day ahead… think of me at 2pm


  1. oi - you know very well that as long as it's below 35 it's within the norms. Mine creeps up and down between 6 and 9 - Renninson said that IF it suddenly jumped by 50 points, THEN he'd be worried. So don't worry.
    And did you know you can phone your GP to get the results earlier if you want to?
    Anyway, thinking of you sweetie - I know exactly what you're going through
    PS: I do wish this comment box had spell check eheheh

  2. Hope all goes well for you today. My husband had cancer nearly 20 years ago now and I know the feeling of appointment dread.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.
