I was diagnosed in Feb.09, had a Radical Hysterectomy, one node tested positve, Adenocarcinoma Stage IIIC, grade 2, 6 rounds of chemo, doing external radiation now (25), will start brachytherapy once this radiation is done. My CA 125 levels started at 75, right before chemo and at my last chemo were 7. I had a cat scan for radiation planning that did not show any recurrence, however the doctor explained that this is not a diagnostic scan but if something was there it may show on the scan. My question is "would you take some comfort in knowing that the CA 125 levels were good and the scans looked good".
The last couple days have been tough for me. I start thinking about everything and it gets very overwhelming. I come on this site daily and go through many of the posts. So many of you seem so knowledgeable about Uterine Cancer that I am really hoping for your feedback. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I keep seeing posts that refer to UPSC and I don't know what that stands for. My pathology report says Endometrioid Adenocarcinoma. What does NED stand for?
