Uterine Papillary Serous Carcinoma: What treatments did you have?

Posted by goldengirl2 @goldengirl2, Oct 25, 2018

Is there anyone out there who has gone through the treatments for this? I have had surgery , and chemo taxes/carboplatin. Radiation is suggested but no one seems to have any data to refer to as we are such a small group I’m guessing. Very nervous moving forward as to what to do.

Hello Brave Lady Friends, Just seeing the Facebook messages of current posts reminded me that I hadn't let you know that I participated in the Nov. 3 Walk to End Women's Cancer in Washington, D.C. in honor of GoldenGirl and PolkaGal. The post-it in the center of the second photo shows your names. I'm celebrating NED since a 3/20/17 dx of stage 3a UPSC. My last CA-125 was 9 (after a high of 76). Sorry to interrupt your ongoing conversation but I wanted you to know that I was thinking of you.

Lost a good friend today to Myelodysplastic syndrome. She and I both became ill at the same time, went through our journeys together, and leaned on each other through the highs and lows. Unfortunately, while I made it to the other side, she did not. She was such an inspiration!!! She fought so hard, had such a positive attitude, and never wavered in her faith even once, to the very end. Now I know survivors' guilt is a real thing, because it is weighing heavily on me at the moment. I share this here, because I know all of you will understand more than anyone else I know….Rest well my friend, you have earned it ❤️

Polkagal, I am so very, very sorry for your loss. I think that it's a double loss when you lose a traveling companion on a healing journey because you are bonded in a special way. One thing I try to do when I lose someone I love is to take a personal characteristic of that person that I truly admire and make it a part of myself. It sounds like she had so many inspiring qualities. You are in my prayers especially for the grieving process that you have just entered as well as your own personal healing.
