Re: New, young, and frightened

I just wanted to say that there are probably a lot of reasons you could have to those symptoms aside from cancer- I know I had messed up hormone levels, hot flashes because of them, painful intercourse and lower abdominal pain (and I always had discharge) and I had endometriosis- a benign but painful condition. I hope the results come back negative for you. Good luck-

Re: New, young, and frightened

I did have cancer. Uterine cancer is actually not that bad -- most of the time, the removal of the uterus is all that's needed, no chemo or radiation at all and recurrence isn't common.

I was an early stage, and the cancer did not appear in my ovaries or lymph nodes. For the next five years, my doctor will see my every 3 months to check everything out. Once I hit five years, I will be declared cured.

So, don't panic, OK? I had terrible visions of the doctor opening me up and finding terrible disease and losing my hair from chemo and all that and I was terrified. In the end, it was no big deal. Chances are good that you'll be just fine.

That makes me feel better because he says my uterus needs to go either way. Thank you everyone for your stories and support. I think I've made it through my first freakout

Re: New, young, and frightened

My hormones have been wack for a couple of years, pcod diagnosed 15 years ago, endo, pain in belly, back, pain and zero sex drive are all reasons I chose surgery to be done on Nov. 30. It is tough, but we all get to a time when enough is enough. I am 41, so I am sorry for those of you who are going through this so young. We females are a tough breed though! Good luck.

HI SARAH, you are in good hands on this site!!
My own situation very different from yours, had TAH&LSO 24 days ago, which was a total shock as I had some bleeding issues, some routine tests and 10 days after the results I was on the operating table!! And I'm 47 with no kids so it is a big deal for me, so I can empathise with at least some of your worries. It's a great idea to share your concerns and feelings and this site has been a super support to me in this extremely difficult time, I hope it can support you too whilst you are in such painful turmoil.

I'm suffering from insomnia (!) hence why I'm on here at 1:35 am here in the UK but just could hear your pain and wanted to extend the arm of another sister to you, in the hope that at the very least you do not feel alone

Warmest hugs and best of luck with your results,
Festi diva
