Hi ladies hope everyone is well. I’ll give a wee bit of a background into my journey so far for anyone who doesn’t know.
I was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma on 3rd November following a routine smear (all other previous smears were clear) after mri and petscan was staged at 1b had a hysterectomy on 7th Dec and everything looked good. When back for my follow up appointment were was told clear margin but traces of cancer in 1 of my Lympnodes so as a precaution I was recommended chemo/rads.
Fast forward to now just had my appointment with my oncologist and she advised of my treatment plan. I will have 2 cycles of c5fu before I have my chemo/rad. Which is cisplatin and fluorouracil. Neither cause hair loss which is brilliant as that was probably my biggest fear of the treatment. After this I will have chemo 1 day a week and rad 5 days a week for 5 weeks and then 2 brachytherapy the easy peasy version since I have no cervix which I suppose is another positive. Seems like a lot but hopefully it will all go very quickly. 2 months to give me back the rest of my life.
Has anyone had the c5fu?
