Topic: What Chemo should be used for me?
Well, I have an appointment with my oncologist today at 1pm. We are discussing final decisions on my adjuvant therapy that starts on Friday the 13th. As of now, I believe they are only putting me on Gemzar but from what I can gather, the combination of Gemzar/Cisplatin is the 'standard of care' for CC.
My situation is a bit different in that there is no remaining tumor and the chemo is preventative to hope for a better chance of non-recurrence.
I actually sent an email to Dr. Javle at MD Anderson, gave him my history, and he also suggested a combination Gemcitabine/Cisplatin for 3-4 months with 5.5 weeks of Radiation and oral Xeloda. I am going to bring this up to my oncologist today but really have no clue as to what I should be doing.
Suggestions/comments?? Thanks in advance!
