My pcp just called with my CA 125 blood test report. It was 9 three months ago. It's 24 yesterday. 35 is the top limit for normal, but mine was 34 when they found my tumor. (Some women have levels in the 1000s when they are diagnosed.) Generally, what is important is how the levels move. Down is good; up is bad. Inflammation can cause the levels to rise and I'm still sore achey from the surgery. In all probability it's from the surgery, but I'm just a little nervous right now.
