My wife is in her mid 40's and was diagnosed with uterine cancer (3a) last year. She was in relatively good health (except for the cancer). She had an emergency hysterectomy due to complications from the cancer. That is when we discovered the cancer.
We went to two clinical hospitals for treatment opinions and both came up with the same thing. 16 weeks of radiation followed by sessions of Cisplatin and doxorubicin. The chemo occurs every 3 weeks for a total of six sessions. This appears to be the "standard" for her age group and staging.
She has been through 4 chemo sessions and side effects have become severe.
Here comes the question (finally):
Any comments would be appreciated.
