I am a stage 3b primary peritoneal cancer 2yr survivor. recently my ca 125 has quadrupled(although still in normal range) and he4 is rising. recent pet/ct normal but my tumors were very small and didnt really show up on my original scan my doc and a 2nd opinion said I need to wait to treat until symptoms show up. what is anyones experience with this, im convinced that something is there becaseu my ca-125 was the same for 2 years then 3 mo it spiked., my doc said remission would occur with same results if it was caught early or if I presented w ascites. I dont understand how this couldbe so, how can it not be better to find and treat early? he says it doesntn improve survival but what about time to end of survival?
