Great News!

Well, my internet, cosmic sisters, all your good thoughts and positive attitudes paid off for me. Just talked to my DR, all the path tests are in and it's Stage 1. Grade 2 - no more cancer!!!! Hot ****. I don't need any other treatments.
I couldn't have done it without you angels, cheerleaders, and wise women with information. I'm telling you all before I tell my family (except the great trooper, DH).
Love always,

Wonderful News!!

That is great news. I know exactly how happy you are....I recieved a path report of stage 1a no further treatment needed about 3 weeks ago after my hyst for endo cancer. What does the grade 2 mean.?My doc didn't include any of that in his phone report to me. I go next week for a post op appt and I am going to ask for a copy of the path and surgical reports and also come armed with some ??. What did they tell you about ert?? I talked to my reg gyn and she said she would prefer me to wait 2 years because if one little cell escaped the estrogen could cause it to settle somewhere else, but in two years with no ert my body would naturally rid itself of any stray cell. She said the liklehood is almost 0 that anything escaped, but she would like me to take the precaustion. The onc/gyn/surgeon doesn't seem to have a problem at all with me starting ert right away.

Thanks again for all your congrats. Couldn't have gotten through this partially sane without all of you. Wonderful to find a group of women who know how important a sense of humor is during hard times. A lot of people just think of me as irreverent. Wonder what they'd think of the pink tutu?

Chris, I'm so glad you don't need any further treatment. When you get your path report, you'll see a grading. Since you don't need further treatment, it's probably a grade 1 or 2 tumor. Check out the following site for treatment based on staging: [url] click on endometrial cancer. It will also help you form some questions for your appointment.

I'm not worried about hormones. I've be menopausal for six years. Since I've always known I'm high risk, I avoided any hormones. Thank goodness I did. Even without estrogen I ended up with an excess of estrogen cancer. Anytime a DR brings it up, I always say "no way".

Go live in health.

Great News!

Did they test your tumor for estrogen receptors? My dr didn't mention that and I was wondering if this test was a standard test done on this type of tumor.

answer for Chris

I don't know about the receptors. I should receive the full path report in the mail today and will be able to check it out. On this forum, VickiA has a great list of links to other cancer sites. One is a medical dictionary. DRs usually talk in generalities, but I like to get a definition for each word. I'll be able to find out more by tomorrow.
