My mother has been diagnosed with a recurrence of endometrial cancer, grade 2, to her pelvic lymph nodes. Her oncologist has recommended 6 months of taxol, adria and platinum chemotherapy followed by radiation. Is this chemotherapy considered better than the regimen of just platinum and taxol? Which is worse in terms of side effects and toxicity? I am concerned because my mother gets sick easily with other medications but at the same time want her to have treatment that will give her the best chance for recovery. I'd appreciate comments or advice from anyone who has been through this.
