Friday they removed my recurring colon cancer from my ovary via hysterectomy and next they want to repeat chemo treatments similar to the treatment I just got over last Nov. Just isn't making sense to me. Why would I want to do the same chemo when it didn't kill the cancer that was obviously in my ovary the first time? It only suppressed it. I did send a piece of my tumor to ChemoFx so they can test varying chemos against it so that should hopefully help I guess. I'm going to be having a PET and CT scan to see if they can spot any other cancer cells and I'm thinking if there are no visual signs of cancer why would I do chemo? Chemo is so hard on a body that's trying to get healthy again. Especially hard on the liver. Wouldn't it make more sense to strive for a healthy body and wait to see if any cancer appears and then treat it? What are your thoughts?
