Uterine cancer, ovarian borderline and now breast problems!

I had a hysterectomy in June. They found that I had early stage uterine cancer, early stage ovarian cancer (which was changed to borderline ovarian cancer) and now I had a mammogram that was suspicious. I will be having an ultrasound next week to determine the status of the two masses in my right breast. There is a probability of them being benign, but possible for malignancy (Category 3). What next? Has anyone else gone through this? I just want to move on with my life and it seems like it is one obstacle after another. I lost my summer because my surgery was in early June and then my incision got infected. It didn't close completely until early September. I am seriously thinking of going to Florida for a weekend just to get some sunshine and ocean serenity. I don't know if two days will do it, but I am ready to give it a chance. I just feel like I was cheated out of my summer. I thought that by having surgery in early June I could be back in a pool by mid July.

Uterine cancer, ovarian borderline and now breast problems!

Hi Linda,

Yep, I can definately relate. I had surgery in April, began chemo treatments in May, finished in August and just found out I have to go through more treatments. I worked throughout but that's about it. I didn't get to enjoy the summer at all, couldn't handle the heat to garden and only had the energy to go dancing a couple of times in 4 months. I used to go at least a couple of times per week. I made myself go out and do some dancing on Friday and it was sure worth the sore legs I had yesterday.

I know its frustrating feeling like you can finally get your life back to normal then wham! not quite yet. But, keep telling yourself it will just take a little longer than you originally thought.

And, that beach sounds great. It doesn't matter how much time you give yourself to relax and enjoy, it just matters that you do! (I'm jealous by the way, I wanna go too!)

I'm thinking good thoughts for your upcoming mammo.

Sorry to hear you need more treatments. Just when I start feeling sorry for myself, someone else has got problems that make mine pale in comparison. I guess I should be happy I never needed chemo. I have the ultrasound (right breast) scheduled for Friday afternoon and am hoping it is what the nurse told me they suspected--benign.
Take care and I will be keeping you and the others in my prayers.

Hi Linda,

I hope all went well at your appointment yesterday.

I was rereading my post from earlier in the week and I have to say I am so sorry. I had meant to let you know you weren't alone in your frustration. Your battles in no way pale to mine (be SO HAPPY for yourself you didn't need chemo) I'm so happy when I hear that alot of sisters don't need it.

I'm looking very forward to the day they tell me its working and I won't need anymore.

Please let me know how it went and how you're doing. I'm thinking good thoughts your way.

Vicki

Cheated out of summer

Linda,

Take that trip to Florida! I felt/feel cheated out of my summer, too...I was diagnosed on July 8th, and I'm still in a fog. I'm sending you benign vibes. Please let us know how you're doing.
