My name is Kathy, 59 years old and living in Kansas. Had biopsy Nov 2010, hysterectomy performed Dec 22nd and pathology report noted Stage 1A MMMT grade 3 cancer. I had consult with oncologist last week and will be having six rounds of chemo (Paclitaxel and Carboplatin) - once every 3 weeks starting in a couple of weeks. Grateful to have found forums and discussion boards like this one. I am trying now to make sure I am healthiest I can be starting chemo. Have read much information about nutrition and vitamins and am confused about supplements to avoid during chemo if there are those. Asked my oncologist and she said just take a good multivitamin and eat healthy. I have read to avoid vitamin C during chemo. Overwhelmed with information right now, emotions are high and want to make sure I have am my best health advocate for this journey.
Sending hope and prayers to all... Kathy
