Wanted to share what my mom's treatment schedule will be for stage 3C UPSC. We met with her Medical Oncologist today- who is AMAZING! Sat with us for like an hour and answered ALL of our questions and really educated us on UPSC and the chemo that he'll be using. He believes in treating the whole body so alongside the chemo, we will be meeting with a nutritionist, massage therapist as well as an accupuncturist- cool stuff. Starting tomorrow, she will receive weekly doses of carbo/taxol. Has anyone else started with weekly carbo/taxol? I thought this was kind of a new approach, but he felt that this would be the best way to have the most amount of chemo in for the longest amount of time in order to kill as many cancer cells as possible.
would love to hear your thoughts,
