I have Stage 3C Grade 4, clear cell uteran cancer. My oncologists say I have a 50% chance of survival of 2 yrs. Obviously, I dont want to be that statistic, however, if my time is short, my quality of life is a large consideration. I made it through chemo. I have alot of pain, fatique & a host of other symptons that they say may or may not be permanent. After some research, it appears that the radiation will diminish my quality of life even further....without adding any 'time'. It seems that if the organs aren't killed by the cancer, they will be killed by the radiation 'melting' them. Being incontinent, living in diapers or bagged up is not my idea of a decent quality of life.
So, for those of you who have done it....can you tell me your experiance with this?
