No wonder you are terrified (((HUG)))
I will try to help ease your worries abit.Sorry if it's abit garbled!!
I believe fom reading your previous posts you are having the Taxol combo
because you are unable to have radiotherapy,have I got that right?
So that's the reason you are finding it hard to chat with ladies at the same
stage as you, going through the same treatment.Most ladies have the cisplatin/radio
to shrink the tumour then maybe surgery afterwards if needed.
I had major lymph node involvement and was able to have the cisplatin/radio to
shrink my tumour and resolve the lymph node involvement.If this had not worked
or if I need more treatment in the future it will be chemo,as I can't have any more
As Molly say's,if you have lymph node involvement I would have thought they would
have given you a pet/ct scan.I am not medically trained and everybody's treatment is
tailored to their own individual needs,everyone is different.Even when it sounds the same
the strength of the chemo and the radiotherapy is different,dependent on loads of other
I would call your CNS or ask the consultant to call you if you don't like your nurse, and
ask them to explain things from start to finish.It's your body and you need to know what
is going on so that you are clear and don't have any extra worry.You need to be as calm
as poss to get through this,stress is not what you need.
I hope everything goes well for you.
