Good evening ladies :)
It's been a while since I've been on.
Since We 'spoke' last.. Endometrial Adenocarcinoma, Stage 2 (move than 50% invasion)
I've started chemo and met my Radiologist (Who is a very nice, smart and knowing man)
Chemo, three rounds, one down, next one on Dec 4th
Radiation, 5 rounds, twice a week, HDR Brachy therapy, starting Dec 5th
So, Chemo was 9 days ago (last Wen) Taxol/carboplatin. I was allergic to the carboplatin... burned my veins and spotted my hands. Dr.'s solution, steroids the day before chemo. Otherwise, first time went as good as can be expected. It was a long day.
That day and the next I was hopped up on the steroids, day 3... I felt like a truck hit me and could hardly move around. All the meds they give you does prevent the nausea. So far that has not been a huge issue for me.
I'm not sleeping very well and my skin feels like I have a sunburn all over it.
All and all.. I'm well and living it day to day. I do not look forward to all of the treatment in December... but I will be glad to be done around mid Jan.
I know that even though 'they' tell me I have no cancer, or that I am NED... I will have it in the back of my head, wondering.
Hugs and best wishes to you all
