anyone have a Radical Hyst from Uterine Cancer

Hello Sisters,

I would like to hear from anyone who and a radical hysterectomy, everything removed because of uterine cancer. I'm 40, we were trying for kids, I was 2 months late when they found the polyp and the cancer. I had a pap done every year and before the surgery, always negative. I had no symptoms and no family history of cancer. It came out of nowhere, and they say I was stage 2. They only found one ovary, anyone ever heard of that? My surgery was 6 hours, they cut nerves in my left leg. Did anyone here have that also? It is so painful, hoping they will grow back. I'm still having pain in the pelvic area and around my scar. Especially around my bellybutton. Is that strange? My doctor just put me on HRT, estratest. I've been depressed, sad and empty feeling. It seemed to hurt me more about the loss of having kids at first. Now I hope they got all the cancer. Thanks to all for all your help. God Bless ray: Lori

Hello again Lori,
I am so glad to see you here at the Cancer Concerns Forum.
My cancer was a stage 2B as well. Were you not required any other treatment. I had radiation...both internal and external.
I am wondering where you had your surgery, being we are practically neighbors
It is normal to feel that afraid about whether or not the cancer will come back. We all experience anxiety in one way or another.
Just keep in mind that we are all here for you, and we all walk this walk together, you are never alone!

There will be quite a few ladies along real soon ready to share their trials and tribulations. Each fascinating and wonderful.

Hi Lori

I just want to offer you my support, and my ers that
you will be feeling better soon.
You have gone through alot and have alot of healing to do on several levels. My surgery was 2 hours. I thought that was fairly long. With a six hour surgery I am sure there is still alot of healing that needs to take place.
We're here for you as you learn to deal with this new stage of life.
I am sorry you were trying for children when this happened. Please allow yourself to mourn as much as you need to. I think only then can the healing really begin. And as Robyn suggested the Aching Hearts message forum should offer you some comfort and women who are also facing this loss.
Please keep us posted on how you're doing. We're here for you.

Hi Lori:

I just wanted to add my

I don't know anything about uterine cancer, but I know the fear and anxiety that goes with a cancer diagnosis. It's a big journey.

Keep posting. It sure helps me.

Prayers for you.

By the way, Lori...I forgot to mention I did have some of the same symptoms. For example the pelvic discomfort, especially around the belly button.....I had numbness in my left leg at he inner thigh. I was told that that was where they removed the lymph nodes.
Did they give you a more specific grade and stage of your cancer. Mine was stag 2b....grade2. What do you mean you hav only one ovary?
Let us know how you make out at the doctor's
P.S. Thanks for sending the pictures. I frequent the same shopping center in Bay Terrace.....

Me too....

Hi Lori -

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer - 1B - in January. My primary care spotted polyps and suggested that I have them removed, mind you that she said having polyps didn't mean anything and "not to worry". Well, I went to a gyno to have them removed...4 days later he called me to let me know that I had a tumor on my cervix. One week later went to gyno/onco to have that removed......4 days later news of cancer......2 weeks later surgery. Like you, healthy as anything and no symptoms whatsoever.

I suffered pain in both hips (lymph node removal), normal tightness in the belly (bikini incision), and tailbone pain (ligament cut away from uterus). Believe it or not I am *still* constipated and *still* cathing myself!! My pelvic floor muscles are not wanting to relax at all. Doc says this is caused from the tissue shaving and removal.

Hoped this helped.....feel free to email me!!!

Dear TMel,

Sorry to hear that you too are still having such discomfort--it's amazing how it really does take time...The concern is what to get "worked up about" and what not to worry about....I mean don't want to call the gynecologist about every little thing--but what is little....
Still having pain in my abdomen--so hopefully that will go away soon...Am supposed to go back to work on the 15th and really don't have the energy back yet, plus not feeling have to see...
Hugs to you...Fran
