I stumbled on the discussion board from googling different things I didn't understand about EC. I am T3N1M0 Stage 3. Supposed to start Combined Chemo/Radiation Aug 6th and I've been so anxious about it all. So glad to have found this to see that others have already been where I am headed. Drs were going to use Proton Based Radiation Therapy but my Insurance right now has declined this method of treatment and unless they can be convinced, I may be getting the regular Radiation Treatment if there is such a thing.
Surgeon did try an Endoscopic Mucosal Resection but the pathology report after the surgery still showed cancer cells.
Is driving to and from treatments something I will be able to do or is it better left to someone else? Since I don't feel bad right now or anything and have all these great plans of continuing to do my office job, drive etc.... Am I just fooling myself?
