My mother age at 55 diagnoised with Endometrial Cancer Stage IIIC last year Oct, she was treated with total hysterectomy (in Oct) + 25 times external + 2 time internal (without staying in hospital) Radiotherapy. Overall treatment was completed in early Jan. She nows still feels little pain around abdominal area and head loss (approx 20 hair per day). I went to hosptial with my mother to conduct 1st follow-up consultation ask if it's okay for the pain and hair loss...I amazed no blood test or Scan test was done on her and the Dr. said it is okay and it is hard to say that...we better keep track on the condition until next consultation in May.
What would be done during follow-up checking for those who has completed the treatment? Probably you may say I'm too anxious but as I read from website my mother's stage needs special follow up. Thank you very much for your sharing and advice in advance.
