Hello Fellow UPSC sisters.. I would like to start a discussion on looking at recurrance rates and survival from the USPC group. This may sound depressing, but I think it would be positive to put light on this "Rare Agressive Cancer".
I had surgery (TAH + BSO and pelvic node clearance Aug 2010). Surgical staging IIIC. (Node involvement). Followed by 8 cycles of Taxol/Carbo and 4 Treaments of Vag Brachytherapy.
Now 2+years later and many scans (PET + CT scans).. No recurrance...Thank God.
I feel from reading some of the stories on this site that it is a given that one will have recurrance ??? Or are women who are now USPC cancer free, not on this site?? Anyone out there 5 years on who has had an all clear? Also would like to here if there is anyone with successful clear scans post treatment for recurrance. Cat
