      PET scan every 3 months - Recently there was a New York Times article stating that we are 'killing ourselves with too many scans.' Please read the article and discuss reducing the number of scans with your doctor. My doctor said I will take a scan when and only when I have symtoms of return of the cancer. So even if the CA 125 increases, I will get the scan only if there are symptoms.
      Best wishes.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I was blessed with receiving chemo without any major problems! Wasn't nauseated, did not loose my appetite, actually gained a little weight. Was able to maintain my usual lifestyle and only felt bad for a couple of days, loss of energy was the only side effect. That and my already diagnosed neuropathy increased. I can live with that! Feeling blessed for my cancer to be stable! Very thankful for my faith abnd God given strength through my faith! Give God the glory and MD Anderson in Houston Texas for their care and concern! A wonderful place if you have cancer!!!

    Procedure or Surgery (Abdominal hysterectomy): Surgery was a complete success! Wonderful doctor and hospital! Recovered nicely and recommend my dr and hospital to anyone with cancer. MD Anderson is the place to go when diagnosed with cancer! Wonderful place! I am thankful I am blessed to be a patient!
