I have been diagnosed with Gestational Trophoblastic Disease- stage 3 Chriocarcinoma. When originally diagnosed I was told that this was an easy fix, a weekly shot of methotrexate would do the trick. When that didn't work I would did the methotrexate five days a week every other week. This treatment has now failed and it is now in my lungs (hence the stage 3). I then found a specialist in this rare cancer, who has started me with an EMA/CO treatment. I did my first EMA portion of the EMA/CO. I feel that I am just waiting around to start feeling bad. I was told I would loose my hair and that it would be less painful if I cut it short first. Any advice on how to proceed with the next couple of days? Has anyone experienced this type of treatment before, that could give me a little insight on what to expect. Do you have any advice about cutting my hair, and if so synthetic wig vis real hair wig? I have so many questions.
