Hi @bluemeade7, thank you for your message. Personally I chose not to have the brachy for now. For clear cell carcinoma, statistics show that a vaginal cuff recurrence is under 10%. Brachytherapy would halve that. If it weren’t for the autoimmune diseases I have, I would have chosen the brachy.
The radiologist said that by not doing brachy I wasn’t taking unnecessary risks. I also went for a second opinion about the adjuvant therapy. The doctor there sad that in case there was a recurrence at the vaginal cuff, surgery could also be an option.
Both doctors as well as the radiologist pointed out that having or not having brachy would not impact my overall survival time.
I appreciated their straightforwardness.
Recovery from the surgery has been harder then I had anticipated. Did they remove only two lymph nodes during your surgery?
All the best!
