    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Carbo/taxol, eight rounds. I took the drugs before chemo, but didn't touch all the pills they gave me for after chemo. I read about all the side-effects and decided that that wasn't for me.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Lymphedema

    Other Care

    I have left leg lymphedema as a result of my surgery and the chemo. I am in physical therapy right now trying to get the leg down in size, again.

    Side Effects

    I have left leg lymphedema, which came on about eight months after my last chemo treatment. I manage it everyday. My hope is that one day lymphedema will not be a side effect of radical hysterectomies.
