My mom was just diagnosed with stage 4 uterine cancer. Doc said it has spread to her bladder, bowel, chest and throughout her lymphatic system.
After originally planning to do a hysterectomy the doctor has decided based on the PET scan results that surgery will do no good at this point. She wants her to start chemo next week.
My mom is 62 and in relatively good health. She is not overweight and never had any previous health problems.
This is so disheartening to us as the doctor emphasized that there is no cure but the key would be to try and prolong her life as long as they can.
I"m trying to see if anyone else has been in this situation. I'm not sure what to do at this point I was hoping they would at least try to remove some of the cancer. Not sure if we should get a second opinion.
Any advice or experience details would be much appreciated!!
