Endometrial surveillance Appointment

I was diagnosed stage 1a grade 1 this past September. I have my first follow up appointment next week and the anxiety is beginning to build. Can anyone tell me what to expect? There were no scans or blood tests done before surgery so I am unsure if this is a talk and take a look kind of appointment or something else.

Re: Endometrial surveillance Appointment

At my appointments I had a screening conversation, an internal exam to carefully look, and a palpation of the abdomen exam—pretty much like a typical GYN exam but more careful. I never had scans or blood tests. For higher stage or grade they may opt to do more. I remember being anxious at those early followup times but as more and more were normal, I became more relaxed. Be sure to bring up any concerns at the appointment, if you have any, no matter how minor, so you can be reassured while you are there. Hoping for a good experience for you.

Hi,
I had stage 1a, grade 1 endometrial cancer as well. During your 1st follow up, gynae oncologist will discuss with you on your biopsy report and suggest next treatment option. For stage 1, normally no further treatment required other than close monitoring/review every 3 months for the first 2 years, than twice a year for 3rd and 4th years. You should be okay. Don’t worry too much. Take care

Endometrial surveillance Appointment

Hello! I, too, was diagnosed with stage 1a grade 2 endometrial cancer. I had a total hysterectomy and BS, kept my ovaries, on 11/19/2020; no further treatment is needed.

I now go for surveillance appts every 3 mos. The appts are super easy. The doctor or NP asks how you’re feeling and if there’s been any pain etc. An internal exam is done and that’s all there is to it. Super easy, nothing to worry about.
