Re: uterine cancer treatment obese patient
I'm so sorry to hear about your aunt's troubles. I would definately get a second opinion. When I had a hysterectomy for uteran cancer, I had a choice of using versaid (not sure of the spelling), which is a type of anesthesia that is an amnesiac, instead of being put out completely. I was going to do that instead of general anesthesia because I was so afraid of being put under completely. I think it's the same thing that is used when a patient gets an endoscopy, which I've had. You don't remember anything or feel any pain.
This might sound like a longshot, but have you ever seen that show The Doctors? They help people in situations like your Aunt's. * email address removed by hb-mod, moderator * I would do that in addition to calling the Cancer Treatments Centers of America, etc.
