    Procedure or Surgery

    The Da Vinci Robot Surgery debulking the entire mechanism - uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes - was a piece of cake. Less than 24 hours after surgery I felt normal and able to enjoy daily acitivities.

    What to do with long range effects of chemo therapy?

    Other Care

    Fatigue and peripheral neuropathy are particularly impacting my work and life style. What have others done to handle these? The sensation of burning and stabbing in my feet are the worst.
