    I am newly diagnosed and will be going back to the hospital on Wednesday to discuss treatments.  My Consultant thinks I will have chemo for 6 months then surgery.

    I have been reading several sites for information.

    Is it possible for answers to some questions?

    - On average what is the prognosis if treatment is successful?

    - On average what is the prognosis if I don't have any treatment?

    - Will I gain weight with the chemo?

    - Will I loose my hair?

    Many thanks
