Hi Tparchery,

I am sorry that you have had a recurrence.  I was diagnosed with 2Acc and went through radical hysterectomy and chemo and radiation.  I had a scan two months later and there was a tumor in my lung.  I was shocked.  That was last July.  In November I had another scan and there was still the tumor in the lung and another one in the abdominal wall.  I had them resected and went back on chemo.  I just finished my fourth round and will be having another pet/ct in a week.  Got my fingers and my toes crossed.

If you have a central recurrence with no other evidence of disease you may be able to have a pelvi extentuation in order to cure you.  Has this been discussed?  Carbo/taxol is a chemo that is pretty standard for this type of cancer.  I wish you well and hope that you get through this with ease.  Good luck.  Let me know if you have any more questions.
