I met with a radiation oncologist and a gynecological oncologist today. It was frustrating. The biopsy confirmed the same kind of cancer as was on my ovary found in my uterus and my vagina. So, it has been decided that I will do radiation. I'm okay with that, but I'm frustrated that they will continue me only on the carboplatin for Chemo, and not try me with a replacement for the paclitaxel, that I keep having reactions to.
The doctor I spoke with told me that my reactions are to the class of drug, and that there is nothing to replace that with. Has anyone else heard this?
In the end, the radiation oncologist did say the carboplatin makes radiation work much better, so there's that.... I just feel like my body is fighting treatments all along the way.
