Hi, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. She does sound like a fighter, much like my mother. My Mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in June 06', received chemo, a full hystorectomy, and another set of chemo both through IV & a port placed in her abdominal area. She was really sick after her last chemo treatment & was admitted to the hospital for her white blood cells being so low. She spent 3 1/2 weeks in the hospital for them to diagnose her with mmmt. My mother is only 42 years old (i'm 23) and it really doens make a whole lot of sense. She has the asides in her stomach which before the fluid contained cancer cells & now it does not & her CA125 is low. I'm just not sure how this all adds up. She is going to Birmingham, AL for a second opinion on Monday. Right now she is so frail, but fighting so very hard. Any information on this terrible disease would be greatly appreciated & support is wonderful too! Thanks!

If I can be of any help please write to me.
Researching on MMMT of uterus, I came across these messages.
As u know all the help that we can get can be important.
My mom was diagnosed with MMMT stage1B in march 2006, had a complete hesytectomy, unfortunately no radiation.
result of which is metastasized lesion L3, suregry took that out, but another one has now been found in L1,doc. is saying go for radiation first and chemo latter. What I want to know which one should be done first.
with this type of cancer, we want to do everything for her.Its depressing. Please help

My sister who is 49 years old, has just been diagnosed with MMMT. I am trying to gather information from others who has been through this or know of someone that has. As all know, when you first hear of this your mind reels and you panic trying to get as much knowledge as possible.
My sister had a hysterectomy and biopsy of the lymph nodes in the pelvic area. Unfortunately, the tumor has spread into the cervix and attached to the bladder. The lymph nodes also have mets. The dr has suggested chemo first followed by radiation if needed. She has other health problems that complicate radiation therapy.
I know no one can tell me what to expect as every case is different. However, I would like to know how other cases have went and turned out. Good or bad. Having someone else to talk to that has been there will help tremendously. Thanks

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
