Ovarian Cancer

Well, yesterday was suppose to be the day I learned what the next step in treatment would be and how extensive the cancer is. I had the CAT scan and x-rays and CA 125 but the pathology is STILL not back from the lab. It has been four weeks since my surgery and the lab has not staged the cancer yet. The Dr. said it will probably be two more weeks. This waiting is awful. All I know is it is Endametroid Adenocarcinoma. Does anyone know anything about this type of cancer? I searched it on the internet but it was so Dr. language I didn't know what they were talking about. This site has been so supportive and I appreciate everyone's concern.

Hi Suzy,
So sorry to hear that you are having to wait yet again. I did a search on my old faithful Google search engine, and came up with alot of information on this type of Adenocarcinoma.

Some of these sites have pictures Suzy, just so you know. I personally am not the picture type....I never wanted to look at the sites with pictures of my tumor, but I know lots of people don't mind looking at that kind of stuff. This too will have alot of medical gargon, but it has alot of different sites so you may find something in layperson terminology.

I hope something in these articles gives you some information that you will find helpful and help you with discussions with your doctors.

Keep us posted on how you are doing. Hang in there Suzy!!
Big hugs coming your way!!

Noooo its not me Robyn....its Google :eyes:

Next to all you wonderful women...google is my hero!!
What I like about it is that it even tells you if you are spelling the words wrong and suggests the correct spelling, whereas other search engines just come back saying they can't find anything on it!!! Its the best!! Did I tell you I even found my grandmothers and great grandmothers obituaries from the 1940's on google? I would have never been able to find those anywhere else. Its an amazing search engine!

waiting is so hard

I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I was also told that I had ovarian cancer in July. It was the scariest thing that has ever happened to me. I am a "gloom and doom" type of person by nature which really did not help. I think in the beginning you're in shock and then little by little you start to accept things and realize that your are still alive and each day is something special that needs to be lived. The worst part for me was making decisions. I wished that someone would just tell me what to do but that does not happen. Learn as much as you can about the type of tumor you had, I know that helped me to make good decisions. And don't let others tell you how you should or should not be feeling. That is the worst. I remember everyone telling me to think positive and all I could think to myself was "I have ovarian cancer, how can I be positive?" These feelings have passed and now I'm ready to start living my life again. I wish you all the best in your fight against this terrible disease. You'll come out on top.

I'm so sorry to hear you're having to wait longer for the results.

I seem to remember your saying the original results were sent for a second opinion, is this why the long wait? Have they given you any idea on how much longer it may take?

I can honestly say I know how frustrated you must be by now, not to mention how impatient you must be to get moving on whatever type of treament (if any) you are going to have. I'm hoping it turns out that you won't need any. I'll say an extra prayer that you won't have to.

I was wondering, you said you just had another CA125 test done? Have you gotten your results back for that yet? How'd it go?

Please keep us posted on how you're doing and what you hear about your results. While I know its hard, try to stay as positive as you can. Although this, as Borderline mentioned, everyone does go through a whole range of emotions after hearing that they have cancer and it IS a terrible disease but one that is being beat more and more every day!

Hang in there hon!

Thank you for your encouragement. We are actually waiting for the 3rd pathology. The first two did not stage it. The oncologist said she doesn't know why they didn't stage it because that is always done. It has been 4 weeks since my surgery and she said it will probably be two more weeks. I have had the CA125, CAT scan and chest x-rays but she said she would wait until the pathology is in and give me all the results at one time. The waiting is hard but I want the whole picture at one time so . . .
