      I was NED after 4 rounds of r-epoch for stage IV lymphoma. My MD wanted to do two more rounds. I went for it. It was not a hard decision for me. That was three years ago. Best of luck to you.

      Hi, Cisplantin probably spelled right is the last form of chemo they want me to try if my leiomyosarcoma of the uterus comes back for the 4th time. Why am I telling you this? I guess I'm wondering what kind of side effects you've had with it. I'm allergic to gmzar so I won't be getting anymore of that.
      As far as would I go ahead with the treatment? Like others have said it really depends on the side effects you have had with it. Even if the side effects have been horrible I would probably ask if they can decrease the dose when/if you decide to continue treatment to make it more bearable... Congratulations on NED

      You should probably get a second opinion or even a third . if only to ease your mind

      I'm so sorry.
      I saw eight oncologists before deciding on one.
      But that was after a plethora of myopic doctors were unable to diagnose a tumor to which I was pointing. After I finally gained 65 pounds, growing the tumor along with the rest of me, so a surgeon finally agreed to cut it away but left the roots the dang thing had developed.
      I'm still not sure I made the right decision. The radiologist was a liar.
      But I am in So. Fla which is the land of incompetence. I hope you have better choices.
      I do understand that your reproductive organs were removed. Were all signs of cancer removed with them?
      It just seems to me that there ought to be a better way than being poisoned with great regularity. I hope, for your sake, that you are able to find that better way.

      Is anyone dealing with an aggressive cell type? How did your dr handle a reoccurrence ?

      What was the point of the hysterectomy if not to remove the tumor or cancerous cells?

      Definitely independent second, even 3rd opinion is in order.

      Best wishes.

      Do tests show that the tumor is gone? If they cannot remove it or destroy it, the chemo may be to stop progression. I’d make an appointment to have a serious discussion with oncologist to understand what the goal is. Best of luck to you & keep us posted. J
