seven months after radical hysterectomy for endometrial cancer

hello all,
thank goodness I found this list at along last.
Had a total hysterectomy on December 17th 2003, ovaries etc all gone due to endometrial cancer. Received 25 sessions of radiotherapy (outwards) and two insides. This was finished in March. Am feeling happyish about some things but wondered if anyone else is till suffering a lot of "wind" and gurggling in the tummy (which is now deflating thank goodness)? I had my three monthly check-up and the Dr says everything is going okay but no promises. Had a grade 1/2b cancer - one slow growing the other a vicious little tumour. I don't know anyone who has had this op and all the treatment so nothing to compare with. Am still exceedingly tired though I do wizz round the housework as I am a doo-er not a sitter. Am suffering from backache this week as got a new car and twisted around to reverse and bingo - put my back out. Just feel a bit low today and cannot stop thinking about "it" coming back.
Hey, usually I am a cheery little soul - any messages gratefully received.
luv
Mrs Bobby

Hey Mrs. Bobby!

I have no advice for you as I havent' had your kind of treatment..but I wanted to
a) congratulate you on your new car

and

b) tell you to hang in there. Everyone has a bad day now & then
and
C) I hope your back feels better soon

lastly,
D)
and I pray that you find some relief from thinking about "IT". I hate "IT" and try my best to think of it as little as possible. I can't let *IT* take over my life! I am too busy trying to LIVE IT!
(oh..I hope you know what I mean by that!)
pssst....I hope *IT* never comes back....and I hope you can stop worrying about *IT*!

Let's chase those nasty cells right out of your body for good!

Hi Mrs. Bobby,

I did not have radiation, but from reading on this site from those who have it seems that digestive problems to some degree and tiredness are very normal, but improve with time. after cancer we all tend to worry about it comimg back, think every ache or pain is a sign of recurrrence. This is called cancer head and I don't know the cure, except trying to keep positive, and know tyhat if you are having regualr check ups and recurrence will be cause at the earliet treatable stage. Enjoy that new car!

Hi Mrs Bobby
I am five months ahead of you recovering from hyster plus radiation for endo cancer. I two external treatments plus something called the boost which was three additional treatment to the tumor site only. I also had three internal treatments both concluding at the same time.
I know how it feels to have no who really understands just what you went and are still going through. Many of my friends see that treatment is over so that's it. Not so I too have days wondering just what is going on in there, but those days are not as frequent as eariler.
The "windy" problem is all too familiar also. For the first three or four months I was almost afraid to be near anyone for fear I would start. In fact one of the others on this site jokingly said she though of getting a dog so she could blame him for the action. It is getting better but I was told that urgency could go on for a long time. Lucky us!
Stomach troubles that were frequent during treatment and for a while following have all but disappeared which is a blessing. I never could figure out what would being it on so treatment was hard.
Still tired but I blame that on lack of ovaries rather than the radation at least for the most part . Some nights I get very little prolonged sleep yet I do not seem to be too tired during the day. Just sort fo blah.
I hope this has helped. Let me know if you have any other questions. I know I was still seaching for answers at your time post op.

seven months after radical hysterectomy for endometrial cancer

Hi Mrs. Bobby, I had my TAH/BSO almost a year ago and endometrial cancer in a very early stage was found. Did not have any chemo or radiation and actually felt quite back to normal, except for tiring more quickly, at about 3 months post op. Your chemo and radiation treatments might certainly account for your tiredness and the digestive probs.
I believe everyone who has had the Beast has days when that lousy Cancerhead rears its ugly head. Just remember we are getting frequent check-ups so anything amiss can be caught early. Both my gyn and gyn/onc, trying to give reassurance, also point out that endo cancer when caught early very frequently is cured by the surgery itself. Of course for me check-up time always brings on some jitters until the "all clear" is given.
s and blessings, peggiesue
