My wife is in her mid 40's and has stage 3 uterine cancer. She has had a hysterectomy, radiation and 4 out of 6 chemo with adriamycin and cisplatin. This was the recommended protocol from two clinical hospitals. She is struggling with the side effects which include the ones from radiation that chemo has brought back.
Her family (they are doctors) believes the damage done by chemo probably outweighs the benefit and has now convinced her that she should quite the chemotherapy and I am trying to convince her to go the distance. She would be doing all 6 if her family was not involved.
Has anyone run into that kind of problem? Any advice would be appreciated.
Also - good luck and prayers to all of you.
