Just got the news...

I went to the doc for my post-op and got the results of my path report, and it said:
Endometrioid adenocarcinoma
G1: 5% of less nonsquamous solid growth

My gyn is referring me to an oncologist in Denver, Co to see what needs to be done. But she said that from what the oncologist has said, looks like ovaries and lymp nodes will be coming out.

I am in shock, not sure what to think, except that I thank God for this site

Sorry you got this news. P;ease check with a gyn/onc for firther durgery as they are the specialists. We all understand the shock you are feeling. Deep breath and consult the gyn/onc if at all possible. Keep posting--we have lots of support here for you.

Dear Snook,

I'm truly sorry about your diagnosis. All of us who've had a cancer diagnosis know the shock and fear that it brings, especially in the beginning.

It's good that you are going to an oncologist next--a gyn/onc, I assume?

You are right, this site is truly a Godsend! You know that we'll continue to be here to support and encourage you.

I hope that you won't have to wait too long for this to be taken care of. Just know that there's really good life on the other side of this--my life is better than ever now, not in spite of the fact that I had endo cancer, but because I did. That may seem hard to believe right now, but it's true. And many on this site will tell you the same thing.

Know that you're in my prayers.

Blessings.
Marlene

Hi, Snook!

Margaret321 just had elbow surgery, so her typing is a little off. But she's a trooper to be typing at all. She meant "further surgery," not "fither durgery," which I hope you already figured out.

Gynecological oncologists really are the experts, and they should be involved with any gyn surgery where cancer is suspected or already confirmed by a biopsy or some sort of other pathology.

My gyn/onc says the survival stats we all read include surgeries performed by gyn/oncs AND regular gyns AND regular surgeons. The survival rate goes up when a gyn/onc does the surgery, and can even be more favorable when the gyn/onc has done many, many surgeries, as opposed to just a few per year. Do try to find an experience gyn/onc if you can. I realize that they can be hard to find sometimes.

Don't worry about offending your gynecologist. This is your life, so feel free to be persistent and loud when fighting for your best interests.

Sorry you're having to deal with this. I don't think there's one person on this board who hasn't felt a huge degree of shock upon diagnosis. So we've all been there.

Hang in there! s!
