well the diagnosis is cancer of the uterus

hey guys, I am Kristin. First of all I would like to say thank you to Surferbabe and all the others who answered my last post. Well my mom does have uterine cancer(endotriamate) I am at witts end am so scared it has been total anxiety and terrible thoughts and depression for a week now. My mom has her hysterectomy on April 24th. I Know she will be ok but we never had to deal with cancer in my family before. Well actually, my grandmother had a hysterectomy when she was 60, she is now 89(she also had cancer) I know it is selfish but I love my mother so much and do not want to loose her. Her doc said they think they caught it early enough. I just want to know what goes through all this surgery and can she be ok and kive many,many more years once cured. All feedback is welcomed because I am taking it so much harder than her. Thanks for listening and love to all of you. Kristin

Hi Kristin! You are in a great place as there is a lot of love and experience here. I am sorry for your heartache. Early detection is key with cancer, and there are treatment options available so that is very positive. Your grandmother got along well with the surgery as well which is also positive. Sometimes the hardest part is the waiting before the surgery - hang in there, it should get easier to deal with the stress. They found cancer in my cerivix which was surface only and I was told that by removing my cervix and uterus - the cancer would have no where to go to. I will say a prayer for you and your mother! Hugs

s Kristen..yeup, I can feel and understand your heartache. A cancer diagnosis is scary. My mom was a wreck, far more worried than I was, and I imagine she problaby felt the way you do right now. I had a job to do (fighting cancer) but mom couldn't do anything but worry and be strong for me..she was scared and felt like there was nothing she could do for me. It was all new to us, too, and it's beyond frightening! My mom found a support group for families of cancer patients, maybe you can find something like that too?

I'm glad your mom's cancer was caught early and I pray she will have a long, happy, and cancer free life ahead of her.
Please keep us posted.

well the diagnosis is cancer of the uterus

thanks so much guys, you guys do not know how much better you have made me feel....... I will look into a cancer group to attend.... I feel so alone, scared, hopeless and it really hurts...... But deep in my heart I know she will be ok. So are you gals still totally cancer free? Also did anyone have a radical hysterectomy???? Sorry for the questions but I would like a little info or knowledge on this. Also,when my mother has this hysterectomy will be she still be able to be sexually active with my dad( I ask this because they still have a healthy sex life and I would like it to continue for them because it is a healthy thing. Thats about it for now. Thank you so much for the responses and all my love and prayers to all of you

HI Kristin,
we went through this exact thing with my mom about a year and a half ago. She had been through menopause already but was spotting for awhile. The dr finally did an endometrial biopsy and found endometrial cancer. They did a radical hyst a week later. They said that was all she needed. I am happy to say, my mom is healthy and feeling good now. I hope you get some good answers! Praying for your mom, Raymo

First, please let me say how sorry I am that you and your famly are going through this. I had ovarian cancer and was the first in my family to have cancer - you have given me some insight into how they were feeling watching me go through this. I think it's a great idea for you to look into some support groups.. you may be surprised at how helpful they can be. I had a total hysterectomy and felt really well after 3 weeks - driving and moving around just fine. I don't want to mislead you, I know that isn't always the way it turns out. I dealt with the chemo really well considering - not much nausea, only very bad joint pain. I'm not sure which chemo your mom will be on, or even if she will need it. I maintained an intimate relationship with my boyfriend throughout it all, and even more so now that I'm finished! Having cancer and a hysterectomy doesn't mean it will all stop! I know your mother will be ok especially with family around her who care as much as you! I'm glad your being so positive - surround your Mom with it as much as you can! Keep us updated...

Your mother is so lucky to have a daughter who cares this much. I'm sure that she would not want you to be this upset about it though. I found telling my daughters was the hardest part of my whole experience. They both live in other states and I knew they would be so worried. I did everything I could to relieve their worry but I wonder if they didn't go through some of what you are going through.

I had a radical hyst. I knew, like your mother that I had endo cancer before the surgery so, we were prepared to really go for it all. I was lucky, as I hope your mother is as well that finding it early I only needed the surgery. For me, the surgery was no picnic and I won't lie..it was a long recovery. I would have loved to have had my daughters around for some of the first few weeks. I live alone and well, my dog wasn't all that helpful. My cousin came to stay with me and she'd had surgery before so was very familiar with how she could help and what really worked. It was a huge help. You will be a great help to your mom. read the lists here on what to plan for and take charge of her after surgery care. Meals can be tricky and just little things can mean so much. She's lucky and we will all be praying for her and you and your family. (sex? it's all good!)
