Reply To: Stage 1A treatments
Michelle, I was diagnosed at stage 1A also. The cancer appeared to be contained in the uterus. I had a total hysterectomy. I also went through 6 weeks of chemo. The information I read said the cancer could come back if I did not receive the chemo. That was also the advice of my local doctor. I completed treatment in September of 2017. Thus far the cancer has not returned. I go for a one year checkup in October. Dr. Birrer, whom I was able to see, recommended CT scans the first two 3-month checkups and then go for every six months. I chose to do scans every 3 months for this first year to be sure we caught it early if came back. I know it is an aggressive cancer. I wanted to catch it early again!
Please feel free to contact me if I can be of help to you.
