In brief: Yes
Many lab tests are done in a fasting state, however, ca-125 is not affected by eating.
Due to variations from lab to lab, it is important to have the test in the same level for follow-up studies.

In brief: I believe you can
The lab may have their own protocol, but fed / fasting status shouldn't affect the assay.
