Not sure what chemotherapy options will be?

Going to drs. today to discuss chemotherapy  for my second reoccurence of endometrial carcinosarcoma.They removed 1.9 tumor from my liver about 4 weeks ago.I feel pretty good.Somewhat concerned about chemo,because dr. said we were in uncharted territory now.I've only had chemotherapy once for this cancer,which was carbo/taxol.I finished that treatment last July,so I feel it did help.Drs.said something about using different meds this time.I guess they don't use the same chemo twice?  I feel really strong,so I'll try whatever they suggest,because I know how aggressive this cancer has been so far.

Sorry to hear about yor recurrence .  I have had taxol/Carbo 3 different times and will probably have it a fourth time.  As long as it has been 6 months since you had the chemo combination you can have it again.  I had 18 months, then 7 months between chemos. Now I am 13 months since my last chemo.

i hope you get answers to your question.  In peace and caring.

You are right,they were going to use carbo/ taxol again.They decided to try carbo/taxotere,only because I still have some neuropathy in my feet.Drs. thought maybe the taxotere wouldn't bother me as much.Thanks for the info.Sorry about your reoccurrences also.I have alot of admiration for you, for I know the turmoil that cancer and each reoccurence has caused me and my family.Stay strong,we both have to keep fighting this monster.
