9/11 Attack on America. 9/12 You have uterine cancer.

Last week was a gloomy one. But since then, I have seen the cancer specialist and have found this site and am feeling better.

Both doctors (gyn & cancer drs) believe, it's stage 1. But I had to wait til I saw this specialist before they would tell me this 'sort of' good news. I would have liked some sort of idea last week, when the world seemed to be coming to an end. I'm having everything removed (TAH/BSO) on Oct. 2. I'm 46, single and childless and still had dreams of finding a good man and bearing one good child.

Everybody has been so supportive. But then there's my MOTHER! She thrives off this kind of misery. I only call her to inform her of any new info concerning this cancer and screen her calls at other times. Being told the number of rosaries done each day (approx. 30) is not helping me. I wouldn't be surprised, if I were to find she was praying to St. Jude (the saint for hopeless cases). She did that when I was a teenager.

I've been on this site for about 3 hours and am totally amazed at all the stories. It now feels like I'm the only woman in the world, who hasn't had a hysterectomy (sp?) and that's about to change.

I am sorry to hear your news. I am also glad that you found this site. There are many great comforting women here, I found that out first hand. Mom's can also be pretty scarey, as is my mom! I love her dearly, but sometimes a time comes that they need to back off. We are their little girls in their eyes, and they will be there no matter what. Anytime you get angry or just need to vent write away, we as well will always be here for you! Good Luck and keep us posted!

Hi Patsy, , yep mums are the same the world over. We love them but they sometimes can drive us insane

I know that when I found out about my cancer, my mum just about had me buried. She didnt think "cure" at all.

Cancer is a scary word , it is hard to do sometimes. But we have all been and done it and now we are here for YOU. Please dont forget that. Take care and love to you always x x

Hi Patsy!!
So glad you found hystersisters!! Its a wonderful place.
Well, you found out about your cancer the day after the tragedy, and the day of the tragedy was the one year anniversary of the day I found out I had cancer. So needless to say I will never forget that date either.

So sorry to hear of your diagnosis but it sounds like it was caught early, and hopefully the surgery will rid you of all of it without the need for further treatment!

Please feel free to post any questions you have. If you have been reading on this board you will see we run the gamit on the various gyn cancers. A small but close group we are!! A wonderful support for each other.

I am sure your mom is just worried for you, and hey, you can never have too many rosaries said for you I say!
Hang in there Patsy, we are all here for ya!!

Hi Patsy Ann, I had surgery for endometrial (uterine) cancer last Dec. It was a 1b cancer. If you get a cancer, it's a good one to get. Yours is early stage, so the prognosis is very good. I had breast cancer too (6 years ago). Just mentioning it to say I'm FINE! You will be too. Does your mother cook? Put her to work. She can freeze a bunch of meals for when your recuperating. Stick with hystersisters. People here know the score.

Hello Patsy!! I am so glad that you found us all here!! I'm sure that you will make wonderful friends and benefit from lots of info and personal experiences! This site was a lifesaver to me!!
I have to tell you that my Mother was praying to St Jude when I was a teenager too, so don't feel too bad about that!! My Mom was not the person that I chose to speak to about my diagnosis either! I think that they don't think before they speak, and it in turn hurts us! Please know that we are here for you!! Vent to us, and we will be happy to listen and help as much as possible!!

Hi Patsy,

Welcome to Hystersisters!!! I'm so glad you found us! It sounds like they've found your cancer very early, that's wonderful!!!!

This site is truly a wonderful place, full of very caring, knowledgeble women who've been through or are going through different types of cancer diagnosis and treatments.

I know its so hard dealing with family members sometimes especially at times like this. Their fear and worry can come out in some very odd ways, some in anger, some in denial and every possible way in between. The one thing I found was that I had to handle my situation my own way, regardless of how anyone else felt about the matter.

I wish you the best in your upcoming surgery. Please know we are all here for you and each other in any way we can be. My thoughts and prayers are with you and hope you'll keep us updated on how you are doing.

Take care and many {{Hugs}}

Hi Patsy,
Glad that you found this site. It certainly is comforting to talk to other women who have been where you are and are doing great! I'm also happy for you that your surgery date is close at hand. That way, you won't have a lot of time to sit around and worry.

I agree that your Mom should be put to work cooking for you! That'll teach her.

But really, I'll be praying for you and all of the other ladies in waiting. Let us know how you are doing.

Dear Patsy: I'm relatively new to hystersisters too. Yes, last week was horrible. Years from now when people ask if you remember what you were doing on September 11 when the tradgedy occured I'll be able to say laying on my obgyn´s table having a cancer biopsy. Life is full of challenges so don´t let this one defeat you.
Hugs, August

I just returned from an advocacy conference sponsored by the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance. It was held in Indianapolis, Indiana. One thing I learned was that a large percentage of the ladies present said they found support groups to be very important. There were also husbands and other caregivers (sisters, mothers, friends) present to learn how they could "spread the word" and be of further support to their loved ones. We also attended a Candlelight Vigil at Monument Circle to remember those we lost to the fight and also for the lives lost in the recent U.S. tragedies. I came away from this conference with many new friends, including one lady who came from London, U.K. We shared a room and have become good friends. I hope to meet her one day in London. Although I am a bit apprehensive of traveling at this time, she said she would be here for the conference as long as she could get a flight to the U.S.
