hello everyone. im new to this forum. i was diagnosed endometrial adecarcinoma last april 2006. had radical hysterectomy and radiation. all is good then by 2010 i noticed my left leg is swelling had DVT because of the lymph node in my groin pressing the flow of my blood vessels. i didnt have any surgery because my onco said its not operable. i had 1 month of radition only during weekdays. then 2011 i had again pain in my hips, so my oncologists made me an appointment fot ct scan, it was bad news. the cancer reccur same place in my groin. i didnt have surgery as well. this time. i had chemo adryamycin and cisplatin..i had 8 hours to finish my chemo it was a long long wait. the side effect aside from being sick, lost of taste, dry mouth, weakness fatigue, i developed peripheral neurophaty in my left leg. the neurophaty never went and this 2013 by february i noticed more pain in my left leg. the pain is like those who have sciatica. i research in the internet and bit worried because of my history. at first i was on denial i keep on taking painkiller believing the pain will go away. but as the days passed, i made an apointment to my oncologists and had ct scan. again the cancer recurred in my left pelvis pressing the nerves and the bone. my whole left leg is in pain now, im in a cane, cant hardly walk. my chemo will be carbo/taxol and the side effects is peripheral neurophaty which i have already...but i dont mind that as long as i will have years to live for my family, and thats my concern. my chemo starts this june..
is there anyone here who has long years of remission with uterus cancer that has 3 reccurences.. it will be my guide knowing if someone is stepping same in my situation. im reading most of the posts, but i never read like my situation thats why i post mine..or maybe there is somewhere but never had a chance to browse more.. but i will be glad if anyone can share the same experiences as mine
take good care everyone,
