      I was diagnosed with MMMT in the early months of 2018. I had a robotic surgery in July 0f 2018, removing my double uterus, tubes and ovaries as well as 10 lymph nodes. There was cancer in two of the ten lymph nodes. I followed up with 28 rounds of radiation and two chemo treatments, then 4 chemo treatments with Carboplantin/Taxol finishing 12/28/18. I have see the doctor’s NP once since then and I asked about a follow up scan and she said they don’t do scans but rather a thorough examination as part of their “Surviorship Plan”. I see the surgeon/oncologist on March 22, 2019 and I’m going to push for a follow up scan. All the research I’ve done says a follow up scan should be done. Anyone else had this issue or have you all had follow up scans?

      I had a follow up scan and had scans throughout the first year after I took chemo. I rest better knowing I am having scans and can get a better picture of what is going on. They are expensive, but worth it to me. I do not rely on insurance.

      Dear Donnell
      I’m wondering how you are now. What for sideeffects did you have from radiation?
      Thank you!

      No, I’m also wandering how people are doing after treatment…
