    My CA125 is normal! So thatís a relief. I did the pelvic MRI and it came back showing the mass is actually on the right side not in the bladder but just outside next to the bladder. So back to square one I feel like with the Urologist. Well her associate anyway since she left the practice.

    I had my adrenal MRI today and am waiting for those results and going to do extensive blood work for the adrenal gland.

    So really Iím still stuck in limbo.

    Very frustrating!

    I pray soon everything ties together and I get the answers I need to many questions Iím going to keep asking!

    Iíll update when I know more.

    So that means you are cancer free?

    Hi Seraphim!

    I guess the CA125 checks for ovary cancer. It came back negative. They also checked the MRI and it showed the same mass was never in the pelvic region. So my original Urologist was correct. The MRI gave more specific whereabouts the bladder mass is outside of the bladder. I wish MRI was the first test done. But the MRI is last resort which is odd.

    So no cancer of the ovary which Iím happy about.

    Itís still in limbo because the same thing theyíve been seeing since November is in a weird location and the MRI would have saved the headache. I suggested MRI in the beginning but the doctors told me not to jump the gun. Itís frustrating!

    As for Cancer thatís still unclear. Because no biopsy has been done of this lesion and the MRI I did of the adrenal gland was because of a tumor on the adrenal gland.

    That sounds like some good news! What's the next step? Biopsy?

    Hope everything turns out ok. You have good instincts and are well informed and that is half the battle. Stay double safe. Unfortunately in this area all elective and out patient procedures were postponed.

    I hear countless stories about the resistance to do MRI's.
    I get there are several options to take advantage of before you result to one. But if you arent a case for authorization, I dont know what is !!

    Hi they already did the two MRIs for me this past week. I meant in the very beginning back in November they should have started with the MRI because it would have saved time.
