I was diagnosed with Stage III uterine cancer and had a complete hysterectomy with only one lymph node affected. I had three chemotherapy treatments, each three weeks apart with a neulasta shot the day after each. Have now had 5 weeks/5 times/week of radiation and three bachytherapy radiation treatments and did well with that. Just restarted one of three more chemotherapies and the pain in my bones from the neulasta seems worse than the first time, also I'm constipated and causing bleeding. I also have neuropathy which got worse this time too so am considering not taking the last two chemotherapies. I am due to have an aortic valve replaced and would like to know what test(s) I could have to say that I am cancer free so that I can have heart surgery. Thank you for your input. I have had a lot of prayer support and appreciate that but with this last treatment I am feeling discouraged.
