      If you are referring to chemotherapy or radiation, the best place to get a general idea is at chemotherapyadvisor.com and this free website will list the regimens of all cancers. I am attaching a link to the common regimens for uterine cancer from the site. I hope this helps you get a snapshot view of the possibilities. Best of luck, Carm RN.

      Some of it will depend on where it has metastized to. I'm IV B, but my mets were to my omentum. When I had my hysterectomy, my surgeon also removed that fat layer that sits over the abdominal organs. That was the only place it went, so I needed just chemo to mop up any left over cancer cells. I didn't have any tumors anywhere that couldn't be removed, so I didn't need radiation. For chemo, I was on Taxol & carboplactin, which from what others have said, sounds pretty common for endometrial cancer. Hope all goes well for you.
