New Zealand v America
I had cancer of the uterine and cervix.
Hi I am interested to know if anyone knows whether the stages etc are rated the same in New Zealand as America. I was classed as Grade2 T2b which I think is the same as your grading, but wasn't give chemo as as far as they could tell it hadn't got into the nodes, even though the surgeon was pretty sure it had until he got the path report back. Is it normal practise in America to have chemo with this grading. Had radical Hysterectomy taking the full cervix as well, (leaving me with just a vault as they call it here) plus radiotherapy 25 sections and 2 sections of internal radiotherapy.
