Hi Margaret,

It’s very good that your cancer has been caught early. I hope surgery goes well – all the cancer is removed, and your recovery is smooth. One thing we stress is that it is vital to be treated by a gynecological oncologist (medical and/or surgical) who has significant experience treating women with carcinosarcoma – someone who sees more than just a few cases a year. There are general recommendations for treating carcinosarcoma and it is important to be carefully monitored (especially since the cancer may be resistant to first line therapy).
It’s good that you are going into surgery feeling well. As you move ahead to chemotherapy, please keep in touch on the forum. Our community can help you as you move through chemo. It’s so important to advocate for yourself and bring along your family or a friend to help you.

Keep in touch.

All the best,
Kathy Wilt
