Hi VickiP, I was diagnosed in January, after visiting my GP & presenting with watery bleeding,lower & pelivc pain (I am 54 & menopausal). I was originally told it was polyps & would require a hysterectomy.. However, after numerous testing - CT scan,MRI, & a biopsy, I was told I had cancer & not to do things by halves - Stage 3 aggressive cancer. I actually asked the doctor 3 times to repeat what he had told me! It was in shock, as you just don't think it is going to happy to you. Other than the Big C, I was in good health. Journey so far- * 3 rounds of ehemo first up to shink the tumor commenced January - radicial hysterectomy in early April -3 rounds of chemo commencing late April - start 5 weeks of external radiation therapy mid July So far I have handled the chemo quiet well with minimal side effects. Will have to travel every day for my radiation. Not looking forward to that. It is a bit of a rollercoaster of emotions, overall trying to stay positve, but of course you have your dark days when you think about it too much. God speed. Denice

So sorry to hear about your teeth discolouration. Did your oncologist offer any sort of insight about it?
The best advice I can offer would be to definitely ask your dentist, and also get the list of the toxic agents used in your type of chemo and ask the dentist about those as well.
Has anyone else experienced this sort of side effect whilst undergoing chemo?
