I'm 41 and have severe Diverticular. I've had flare up for the last few weeks and saw a consultant privately last week who referred me for blood tests along with a Colonoscopy and MRI.
The GP called me yesterday to say the my CA125 was 250 and has referred me for ultrasound.
I've read though that your period can affect the CA125 and the blood test was taken on the first day of my period. Also Diverticular flare ups can affect it, which I have
So how worried should I be?
I have two young children so putting a brave face on it all.
I do have low abdominal burning but have always put that down to my bowel issue.
Thanks for taking the time to read this xxxxx
