Hi - I am new to the boards. My mom was recently diagnosed with Uterine Carcinosarcoma Stage 3. She had a hysterectomy in November 2013 and started carbo/taxol chemo in early 2014. CT scans showed a golf ball size tumor and small nodules on her lungs, so her cancer is considered Platinum resistant and she is now on a different chemo regimen of gemzar/taxotere/avastin. Her next CT scan will be in June. I've been browsing the boards for some time and find your stories inspiring. While I am looking for support, I am also interested in learning all I can about this cancer and what others are doing in their fight. My mom prefers not to use the internet for research/support as it can be a very scary place. I certainly can't blame her for that... I would love to hear from other survivors out there, details about treatments (conventional or unconventional), books to read, websites you recommend, etc. I'm not happy to be here but I'm glad there is a place like this to turn to.
