Hello all, Got my pathology report on 4-7. Stage 3, one tumor in the uterus and one in the right ovary. Both were said to be "superficial". Negative lymph gland involvement and pelvic washings were negative. I get a chemo port put in the l4th and start chemo on the 20th. One week, I get both carbo and taxol, weeks 2 and 3 I get just taxol and week 4 I get a week off. Then we start over with both drugs, and so on and so on. If all goes well I'll be done with chemo the end of September or thereabouts. They told me results are the same and one advantage to getting reduced doses weekly is its not as hard on the body. They did tell me that I will not need radiation after all because of no lymph node involvement. Anyone have any input or advice on this type of chemo regimen?
