Thank you Marion, a break was needed but I will do some more digging later on this issue over the weekend.
Thanks Susie, glad that my links have given you more to look into. That is good to hear that your rad onc although not having experience with this treatment is keeping an open mind about it for you. I hope that your other onc has experience here, but if not, I hope she also has an open mind. It could well be worth speaking with Mayo if you are interested in looking further into this as they seem to be quite up to date on this treatment and say that they have one of the largest chambers in the US.
Yes I noticed that point about Cisplatin from the wiki page and as we know, Gem/Cis is the more standard chemo for CC patients. It would be imperative that you mentioned this to the doctors when you ask them about HBO and if that would be suitable for you. I too wonder why it is contraindicated and I will look more into this, and if you find anything out about this from your onc's then please could you let us know what they say about that. I guess it could be the case that the wiki info about that is wrong, not saying that it is or anything but I wouldn't take what wiki say as gospel here. I'll post more links when I find them.
Hugs to you both,
