Curious if any of you have had additional rounds of chemo just to prevent possible reoccurance or mets? My dad as some of you might remember really got knocked down by his chemo/radiation treatments as he is a non surgical canidate. But...on the great side there is no existing disease at the moment. His doc is recommending another 2 rounds of just chemo to make sure all cells are killed and there isn't anything floating around so to speak. I can't find any studies to support this. He literally almost died from chemo last time. He spent 3 weeks in the hospital and is still recovering very slowly. Part of me feels like the best thing is to recover and go live your life. Deal with reoccurance if it happens. But...then again maybe a few more rounds of chemo might be curitive as well. I know reoccurance is high with EC, but...2 more rounds of chemo has its risks as well. Has anyone else been told to do more chemo when you appreared disease free?
