Uterine Cancer...

Well back in September, I was diagnosed with borderline uterine cancer and had surgery with the intent of a complete hyster. but only had my left tube and left ovary removed and some other stuff...Was given 2 years to TTC but had recently started having some pain. The doc is pretty sure that the cancer is on its way in. There is a possiblity of chemotherapy this time. That scares the hell out of me. I will do what I have to do to remain healthy, but I am so young. I don't understand the way God works sometimes, but he knows better then me, I suppose. I didn't have to have chemo last time b/c they described the cancer as non reponsive to chemo or radiation. But it shouldn't have grown back this quickly. That is why we are opting for the hysterectomy. I have no children. My husband and I have been married for a little over 4 years. I feel like a failure to him...I am sure that these are normal feelings and they will evolve over time...thanks for listening...

Uterine Cancer...

Hi, Metzkat. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. You are in a very frightening place.

Please don't let yourself think that you are a failure. You are not. Cancer happens. It does not define who you are nor limit you from any future potential.

I, too, had cancer in my uterus as well as in my ovaries. I had a total abdominal histerectomy in April of 2003. My dh and I adopted a baby and you know, I am no less of a mom to her than I would be if it were my biological child. If anything, I like to think that I am a better mother because of my situation because of my experience with cancer...

I do not take my daughter, or my husband for granted. I know what's important in life and I know how precious every day is.

Also, many of us have gone through chemotherapy. It's scary, too. But you do what you have to in order to get better. I would do it again in a heartbeat if I had to and the chemo treatments I had are becoming distant memories.

Good luck to you, sweetie. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers on during your surgery on the 14th. Let us know how you're doing.

God bless.

Dear Metzkat, I am so sorry you are facing so much at your young age. Please do not ever think you are a failure to your husband or anyone; none of us are defined by our organs but each of us is a unique, wonderfully made individual. We may never know, at least while here on earth, why we are faced with certain difficulties including cancer but please remember that your Heavenly Father will remain with you in these times and don't forget to call on him to help and comfort you. You mention you have no children - while it may be too early to think about this now, please remember there are so many babies waiting for loving, caring parents and you and your husband may want to consider adoption in the future. I am keeping you in thought and prayer. Please let us know how you are doing when you feel up to it.
Many s, peggiesue
