Hi all. Today is my 3rd hysterversary from stage IIA/grade 1 endometrial carcinoma. It's just been a normal day, although it seems I've been going over the last 3 years in my mind alot lately. Hubby mentioned it out of the blue a few weeks back, and so did my teen daughter, so I'm not the only one who's been thinking about it.
I've been blessed that I've been able to move on to 6mo checkups. I should be having one next week, but since my gyn/onco had to postpone my October visit, they said insurance wouldn't cover my visit and another pap until after May. All exams up until now have been fine, so I'm feeling less stressed at each appointment. My docs are great and that helps alot.
My biggest physical hurdles that are still hanging around seem to be joint pain and weight gain/bp issues.
My spring promise to myself is that I'll move more and eat less (wonder how much effect that can have in 1 month before I have to go to the docs again).
I AM doing better at 3 yrs out, but the darned joint pain is still there. Much less though - now when I get up in the morning I only walk like I'm 70yo instead of 98. Oh, and still - more often than not - I have to work to get myself 'in the mood' for hubby, but even that's getting a bit better. I feel like maybe I'm just on a slow curve with all of this.
I just wanted to check in. I haven't posted much recently, but I do read and keep up with people. With a teen learning to
and huge changes in the administration at work, life has turned much more hectic. I'm looking forward to vacation in the summer where I can concentrate on some 'me' time and just center myself again.
Love and prayers to all my Hystersisters out there....
