Endometrial CA

Hi Girls
I am new to this board but thought you might be able to offer some advice.Had a TAH on 9/23 and have done very well over the last 5 weeks. Tomorrow I have my final check up and was just wondering if given the above DX (stage 1,minimal superficial myometrial invasion , less than 10% of myometrial thickness) is there anything I should be asking DR about? When I went in at two weeks DR explained path report, stated that due to the minimal invasion he felt no further treatment was necessary. He offered to send report to a CA specialist at Mass General in Boston for her intake and review which I agreed to.I expect he will have her report tomorrow. I am thinking I will ask for a referal to see her as she is the CA specialist and it might be good to speak face to face as well as having a connection if anything comes up in the future.I am 51, using no HRT (due to this DX as well as HX of mom , sister having breast CA) and live a pretty healthy life.Just wondering if others have had this issue and perhaps some helpful hints. I have realy had no problems with hot flashes, night sweats , mood swings etc so far. DR says this probably means I will have a fairly easy time since I am now 5 weeks post op. Anyone else have that and is he right ?This site has been a God sent and I really think it has contributed to my (and so many others ) doing so well pe/post op. Thank you all in advance.

Endometrial CA

Hi,
With minimally invasive endometrial cancer, no further treatment beyond the hysterectomy is usually needed to "cure" the cancer. One question to ask your doctor is how often you will need to have PAP smears and what if any other follow up tests will need to be done.

I am 39 years old and am 9 weeks post-op and not able to take any HRT due to my cancer and really haven't noticed any hot flashes, night sweats or mood swings (although my co-workers may disagree).

Hi Sullysul,

I have had no experience with your condition so I can't help with information, but want to wish you good luck with your appointment tomorrow.

Endometrial CA

Hi,
I had my hyst for endo cancer stage 1b in november of last year.
I needed no further treatment , but I get a pap every 3 months as my new onoc/gyne wants me to. My 1st onoc/gyne said every 6 months , but this one says every 3, so they vary in that dept.

glad your doing well with the night sweats and hot flashes, this to varies from one person to another. I still have sweats and flashes, but very minimal now.

Good wishes on your check-up.

Endometrial CA

Hi, I was also 51 when I had non-evasive endometrial cancer.I did start to have hot flashes at 6 weeks. Everyone is different so maybe yours won't be bad. I'm also not taking HRT because my mother had breast cancer. Drinking lots of water and a good diet, exersize and vitamins will help also. Good Luck and e-mail me anytime if you have questions. Candy

Endometrial CA

Sullysul,

Just thought I'd add my voice... I too had endo CA (stage IIIc) and no HRT - surgery was back in 5/00. I've not had any hot flashes, but this may be because I've been on Prozac. I'm trying to wean myself off it now, and have had some strange feelings - not quite hot flashes.... My main problems are lack of libido and vaginal dryness, and I'm trying various things for this - you can get lots of info at the "no-hormone desert oasis" board. Good luck!
