Re: Timeframe for CA-125 Test Results???
The PA did the right thing. With postmenapausal bleeding, the correct test to do is an u/s to see if there is thickness in the lining. Since you did not have any thickness that rules out uterine cancer, which is a good thing. It was also very wise to have a repeat u/s because you did have some pathology. In terms of your surgeon, although he sound like he rushes though with his patients, he is also doing the right thing. He is trying to see what he may be dealing with. He is looking for what he believes may be ovarian cancer which he would have a better idea once the blood work come back. If your CA125 comes back negative than he will probably rethink his treatment plan. He sounds like a very consiouses (sp) surgeon who is not quick to cut. Go slow and work with him and see where it leads you. If after a few weeks and you begin to ask and not receive satisfactory answers to your questions, than by all means, seek another opinion.
