If her oncologist is female, she should ask what her doctor what she would do in her position. If her oncologist is male, she should ask what he would recommend for his wife, mother, sister, aunt, or daughter.

BTW, even if there were an doctor here, no detailed or specific medical advice could be morally, ethically or potentially even legally given without haveing seen that patient and being fully familiar with every aspect of the case.  (+ info)

she will be taking chemo's tho now because of a prescribed drug that she was on .Endometrial Carcinosarcoma "MMMMT" UTERINE CANCER

What are my chances of cancer recurrence?


I was diagnosed with stage 1b carcinosarcoma of the uterus in February 2008. I had a full hysterectomy in March 08 and 3 rounds of radiation followed by 6 rounds of chemo. I am almost 2 years out of everything and I have started being so tired. Now one thing you should know is that i do work retail, so I'm on my feet all the time. I'm used to having a lot of energy and i have less every day. I do go back to the doctor may 7, so i was wondering if i should ask for a a ct scan. It's scary to go through it once but to think it could be back, i don't know what to think. i guess we'll se when i go back to the doc. what are your thoughts?
remember that i went through all of this in 2008, not this year

Look what you've been through, surgery, chemo, radiation and you work. No wonder you feel tired. I'm sure your Dr will tell you the same thing. Chemo alone is so exhausting on the body, you had both. I think you're doing pretty good. I'd be crawled in bed wanting to sleep all the time, in fact, I did. I admire you. You have to realize what your poor body just went through. It's not your every day norm. I don't even know what to compare it to. It's been only 8 weeks? and you're back at work? Honey you have more stamina than I did. I have a feeling you're going a long way. As far as cancer coming back, there's always that chance with everyone and every kind of cancer but I have a feeling you just won't allow it. More power to you. God bless you. You amaze me.  (+ info)
