hang in there

Hang in there. The waiting is the worst part.

I just had a TAH/SBO last week, after a diagnosis of Endrometrial (uterine lining) cancer that was found in a D&C in February. I've also had breast cancer, and in both cases, the initial waiting was absolutely the toughest part.

My prayers will be with you, that you get good news and you get it quick!

uterine cancer

I am so sorry to hear of your loss and what you are going through. I was diagnosed with stage 1 uterine cancer in January. I am 31 and was in the process of trying to conceive when all this was discovered. I did not opt for a hysterectomy right now but I am taking Megace (a hormone known to change to bad cells to good ones in the endometrial lining) in hopes of being able to conceive down the road after treatment.

Yes, the waiting is the WORST part.
As far as the Husbands go, they never seem to show their worry on the outside and always believe no matter what the results that we are gonna be just fine...Sometimes, I think if we could just think that way we would spare ourselves alot of stress and mental anquish. Of course I am a worry wart. I hope for the best but prepare for the worst ( I wish I didnt do this but I do)

I pray all goes well for you and you get ypur good news soon!
Keep us posted

I wish I had more time this afternoon as there is so much to say. However, please act on this in a timely fashion. I had a TAH in November of 03. Grade1 stage1b adenocarcinoma. If it truly is cancer, I am sure they will want to do a biopsy. I let mine go for a while and I wish I had acted more quickly. My chances are pretty good. But, it all depends on the type of cancer/the grading/staging etc etc. If you do end up with cancer and have surgery... be sure to have an Oncologist at the surgery. It is most important to have lymphnodes checked for proper staging. A mistake in my case and now I live with more doubt. ....uterine cancer has a high success rate of being totally curable. But, it is important to get it as soon as possible. There is plenty of information on this web site as well as using seach engines on-line to get more info on uterine cancer. Please educate yourself. If it is cancer you do not want to mess around as time is an important element. Also, I hope your Doctor is one who will explain and educate you. I choose a new Doctor because my original one, was not willing to spend time with me/provide information or explain options etc etc.

Again, I do not mean to scare you one bit. Just want you to be an advocate in your own health. There is lots to know and understand.

My best thoughts to you....and if you have more questions for me please feel free to ask. I just got a little concerned when I read your thread. Hopefully, others will respond to you as well. The more information ....the better

Good Luck to you.....baylee6

Ps...very sorry about your pregnancy....this must be so stressful for you.

RE: Endometrial cancer Stage 1 diagnosis - That's about as good of news as you can get and still have cancer. I had stage 1 as well, and my doc said that it's curable with surgery only. Not just treatable, curable! No chemo, no radiation needed. Hope the message you get will be the same.

That being said, it's still tough hearing it, and will be a "journey" to go through, but take heart - we're pulling for you! Hang in there!

uterine cancer

2005:

I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis, I also was diagnosed with endo, stage 1 (b), in February, 2004 and I am now 14 months post-surgery. When my gyno explained that at early stages (and sometimes not so early stages) this is a very CURABLE form of cancer, I was in such a daze that I really did not take comfort from his words, but now I have only had the surgery and I have had no signs of disease since the surgery. At times I still am in a daze over this whole experience, but it gets easier everyday. Please remember that the doctors are working for and with you, so ask any and every question to the oncologist (I hope it is a gyno/onco for the best specialist ). I hope that you get all the answers you seek and if you have any questions, there are alot of real smart girls who will be able to answer most of your questions. Keep us updated....

uterine cancer

Hi,

I am so sorry about your pregnancy loss and then being hit with the cancer beast; this would be very difficult and stressful for anyone. It is good to hear that your endometrial cancer apparently is in an early stage; this often means surgery alone will be the cure.

I too am an endometrial cancer survivor. For me accepting the fact that cancer really was lurking was probably the hardest part. At that point all I wanted was to "get it out" and thankfully I had surgery less than 2 week after the DX and have not needed any follow up treatments.

I wish you good luck at you appointment today. You may also want to consult with the gyn.cancer experts, a gyn.oncologist, if there is one in your area. Please let us know how things go.

s, peggiesue
