      I am. I am on my way to the oncologist. I have my fifth carbo/taxol chemo cycle on Friday and we will be discussing course of radiation 0 pelvic, vaginal brachytherapy or both. I am your age. I had a total Da Vinci hysterectomy in May.

      I was referred to a radiation oncologist. I will be seeing him on the 24th. Right now, I am thinking I just want to do vaginal brachytherapy. My reasoning is probably wrong. I am in the midst of a job search and I am not sure how to deal with the need for a lot of days for pelvic. My oncologist also kind of agrees with my thinking that I should go for the less harsh treatment to begin with and then observe. UPSC has such a high rate of recurrence that I want to be as aggressive as I need to be but there is no standard guidelines as to what that means.

      How are you doing?

      I looked on my pathology report and papillary serous carcinoma was one of several things listed. I had ovarian cancer which had spread to my uterus. I had surgery for an abdominal hysterectomy and removal of my cancer, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It was followed by carboplatin and taxol chemo - 6 rounds spaced 3 weeks apart.

      Me! I'm 68 now. I had breast cancer in 2009. Then I had a D&C May 14, 2013, a DaVinci hysterectomy June 4, then three rounds of taxol and carboplatin and three sessions of vaginal cuff brachytherapy. My hair is just beginning to grow back.
