Well my doctor has put my mind at rest and started me on fluoxetine for my anxiety my  c125 was 32 not raised he showed me on his computer it also said tell patient it's fine! The only thing was a marker which was raised he said can be raised from infections even a cold which I did have at the time, still to go for ultra sound and he will take my bloods again on the 14th he also said my stress levels etc could cause it to be raised thankyou all that has taken there time to respond to my anxious questions I will still be here to support all you lovely ladies

    Great news Denise, I said a prayer for you last night...I'm sure your ultrasound will be fine too, but still let us know. Alot of things can cause the ca125 to be elevated,,and that's not a high number at all, so happy for you

    That's really good! Have you been on flouxetine before? Just be aware it takes three weeks to work, and can sometimes raise anxiety levels before it works. Plus insomnia, drowsiness and weight loss (which pleases some people). I'm surprised your doc gave it to you for short term anxiety. I hope all goes well.

    Glad you got good news! I wish I could say the same. My CA was 107.5, not good. I hope mine drops now that I had the TAH and tumor removed. I'm very concerned and anxious and have anxiety drugs available. Still facing more lymph nodes and whatever else they decide to do biopsies. I'm scared. Anybody out there taking Femara also know as letrozole? Are you having side effects or managing well?
