What Endometrial-Uterine Cancer Survivors said about their Chemotherapies.

felt sick all the time, metal icky taste, neuropathy, ruined joints >:( bone pain
Chemo start date 7/15/09 - Doxil infusion with Ativan and Compazine every 21 days...that was "potponed". Chemo, once started, was be Doxorubicin and Ifosfamide - 4 days of 24-hour infusions. Mom was having delirious thoughts from the chemicals, they took her off of food - the doc said she "had enough fat on her" to get by without food. She was in and out of sleep from the sedatives in between chemo.
INITIALLY TOLD NONE NEEDED 7/6/09 MY DOCTORS REISDENT CALLED AND SAID NONE NEEDED BUT AT THIS POINT I DO NOT TRUST MY DOCTORS AND WILL SEEK NEW HELP SURGERY 8/6/09 REMOVAL 27 NODES NO CANCER...SO NO CHEMO WILL BE NEEDED
First round of chemo on 7 May 09 Second round of chemo on 1 Jun 09 Third round of chemo scheduled for 21 Aug 09 My doctor is using a new "sandwich" approach to treatment. 2 rounds of chemo > then 25 days of radiation > then 2 more rounds of chemo. This is new and apparently works better than all chemo then radiation. I am in control and working to erradicate the cancer via chemo and radiation.
Chemo 6/21/10, 7/12/10, 8/2/10, 8/24/10, 9/14/10 - nausea, fatigue, bone & joint pain, diarrhea, neuropathy; scheduled for 1 more round

little queasy tired bald last one nov 5th 2010 yesssssss!!
None required
Every week on Day 1 & 2 and Day 8.
Lost hair not much else
Chemo came after radiation the first time, chemo only the second time, radiation only the 3rd time. Allergic reactions to almost all the drugs tried, but that was the second time. The ones that I didn't react to made me very sick, so I'd go in to be hydrated the day after chemo since I was unable to do that at home. It's hard to eat and drink when you're asleep. Another side effect of the drugs and certainly the pain killers for me.
Starting chemo (carboplatin and taxol) on 4/27/11. Will have 6 sessions, one every 3 weeks.
recommended to start after radiation
TBD but they definitely want to do it.
