Hi I was diagnosed with USPC 1a in January this year and had a hysterectomy in March, following a PET scan they also discovered I had lung cancer, the tumour was very small so that was removed by surgery in May this year. Thankfully no further treatment is needed.
I am having chemo carboplatin & paclitaxel at the moment, the last one next week, making a total of 4. I to have lost my hair and suffered quite badly with muscle pain, but am coping quite well otherwise. I just want to ask someone as when I have finished my chemo they would like to do radiotherapy (vault brachytherapy in 3 fractions (internally) Am not sure that it is necessary! it seems very intrusive, and have read that others with 1a contained in the endometrium had no further treatment. It frightens me when I read how aggressive USPC is!! any advise for me I would be very grateful. I'm seeing my Oncologist on Wed to discuss this treatment would like to be well informed before this meeting.
