I have uterine cancer. 2007 total hysterectomy and 28 radiations. Jan 2012 mets to lungs and abdomen, started once a month chemo with carboplatin and taxol, May mets to rib bone and spreading, affecting nerve bundle in back shoulder, 19 radiations, July 2 mets in brain, gamma knife and good results, newest CT shows new mets in omentum and untreated lung has grown slightly, and 3 unidentified lesions on top of my liver. No more chemo. Dr. said maybe Avastin but most insurances don't pay for it - anyone with experience on the insurance? Has anyone received Avastin? Is it or did it help at all? Has anyone with advanced uterine Mets received some other treatment I can draw their attention to?
