I am looking for information/advice about others' experiences.
I am 52 and had a total hysterectomy on Jan 5. The cancer had not spread to lymph nodes. It was staged as 1A. Although there were positive washings, my gyn-onc said that the new FIGO guidelines don't take that into account. So, I am stage 1A.
He put me on 3 rounds of brachy and I have completed two. To supplement that he gave me 4 treatment options:
He felt that chemo is more aggressive than called for, for my case. I am inclined towards option 3.
I am curious to know if anyone else has had the same type of treatment options based on the new FIGO guidelines.
