I went to HKL yesterday for my monthly check-up. Alhamdulillah I didn't have to wait for so long before the nurse called my name.

Dr. Murali, the specialist who operates & monitors my health, informed me that my CA125 reading is VERY GOOD. Last month reading is 21 and this month it has decreased to 12. I did not expect it to be that low. Now I am determined to do whatever possible to decrease my CA125 reading further.

CA125 is a type of protein which is used as a marker for ovarian cancer. A reading of CA125 more than 36 in your blood indicates that you might have an active cancer cell in your ovary. However, the level CA125 may also be high in the case of pregnancy. That's one of the reason I cannot be pregnant now :( For better details, please check through Uncle Google. I am writing based on my knowledge and understanding of my condition.

I think I have to REALLY LISTEN to Dr. Murali's advice.
1-Eat more fruits & vegetables.
*I love veggies & fruits. It just that sometimes I forget to eat them.*

2-Drink more plain water.
*No problem in this area :)*

3-Walk everyday for 30 minutes.
*I love walking, not just it helps burn my calories, it also helps clear my minds. I rarely use elevators. But sometime, I do have time constraint. Oh! I have a plan to do more walking when Ramadhan ended. Will share with you when the time comes.*

4-Lessen the stress on myself.
*Working hard on this. I'm not easily stressed but I love to plan. So when the execution is not as what is planned, I'll stressful.*

Anyway, I believe this news is one blessing in the month of Ramadhan. Alhamdulillah. I hope I'll get better so later next year I can get pregnant :)
