I've been processing a bit lately. I'm at the 3 year anniversary of when OC was suspected for me (3 years post treatment in July). All is going well and I've had the BRACA testing done and I don't have the mutation. My check ups are now 6 monthly with no blood tests since my CA125 never elevated even when I had cancer.
I'm feeling a tad guilty that I have gotten off so lightly. A year after my diagnosis my mum had to have her ovaries out (thankfully her tumour was benign) but now she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Her mother died of breast cancer in her early 50's - my mum is in her early 70s.
Starting to wonder if my daughter (25) should get the BRACA testing done - would there be any point given mine was negative and there is absolutely no history on my husband's side of the family?
I know they are finding out more all the time and I wonder if there aren't more genes involved than just the BRACA ones.
