How does this all sound to you? What does he mean that there is no extension to outside of uterus, yet he also wrote invasion into outer half of muscle of uterus? He said he thinks it can be treated with radiation. Her appointment with the gyn oncologist is in about 10 days. We would really appreciate any thoughts or insight. Thank you so much.
I had uterus sarcoma 10 years ago and I had chemo and got it cured. I was in stage 3/4.
Stage 2 is not too bad. Radiation should do the trick.
What he really means is the cancer is not spreading outside of uterus and go to the ovary and anywhere yet. But the cancer was coming out of uterus and is in the wall there. It is not spreading to other organs.
So she should get the radiation done ASAP and hopefully she will be in remission.
