Wednesday's Child

Just got home yesterday. I thought I was going to come home to recover & look forward to getting my life back but my doctor came in on my secod day of hospital stay and told me they found invasive cancer & I am devistated beyond words. I now am facing another operation to remove my ovaries that they left and radiation treatments. This is a nightmare. I wish I had just died on the table.

Dear Noelle,
I am so sorry! I had my radical hyster. on June,4 for cervical cancer , stage 1b. I know I was shocked and had only one week after dianosis to prepare for my surgery. It still seems unreal to me! I know it must be horrible not knowing about the cancer until after the surgery..what type of cancer did they find? Did they say what stage it was? I hope you have an gyn/oncologist that will preform your next surgery.
I am praying that you will find comfort and strength to get you through this time and that your treatments will be successful!
Let us know how you are doing!

Huge s Noelle

Hang on dear sister. Right now you are totally overwhelmed. And rightfully so!! But please believe me when I say sunnier days are coming your way. Your diagnosis of cancer really was shocking after anticipating a hysterectomy due to fibroids. Many ladies posting here have lived through the same shocking news.
One day at a time. One foot in front of the other.
You have come to a great place for hugs, encouragement and advice.
Now for the first piece of advice. Get all of your information together and make an appointment to see a gyn oncologist.
They are the experts when it comes to gyn cancers.
If you need help finding a gyn oncologist in your area, please let us know. We are here for you each step of the way.
Please come back soon and let us know how you are.
We care. You can do this Noelle. And many of us here are living proof. Stay with us through this time.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.

(((Noelle)))........ I am so sorry about what you are going through. What a shock it must have been to get such news. Please know that you have a lot of friends here.

I agree totally with karenann about the Gyn/Oncologist. They deal with GYN cancers all the time.

A Wonerful Site to Be On

I too admit I was surprised they had found cancer and I was told after surgery--I knew they suspected it but I felt they'd find "junk" in the ovaries instead. I woke up to "it's cancer" and a few other things. At that point, I think we go into shock in many ways and all we can hear is "cancer" and "chemo" or "radiation" and get overwhelmed. Please do consult a gyn/onc for your second surgery--they're the real experts in this area. What kind of cancer did they find and where has it gone? All of us here have been hit with this kind of information and gone through many physical and emotional changes. This is a very good and safe place to ask questions and sometimes do the very best thing at the moment--vent frustrations. Please feel free to come here often. And hey--you CAN live with cancer--look at me. Going through treatment for recurrence; PCP is talking "better diet" at April physical for my heart; I get out and about every day although I did take early retirement; worked through first chemo session and only retired due to a heart scare; am getting the travel bug itch again which I haven't had in years; think Dairy Queen is a food group necessary for daily good nutrition; the list goes on although right now you're still at that "oh my gosh I have cancer!" stage. We'll help you.

Me Too

I thought that I had Ovarian cancer, went to have surgery to have everything removed. My doctor had told me that evening that everything came up negative(as far as the ovaries). I thought that I had missed that hit. Well I had went home on sunday, then on monday my gyn onc called and said that I had, endo-cervical adenocarcinoma. I know how you feel. But dont be discouraged. Just take one day at a time and work thru it. I know that hearing that news must be hard, but I am sending 's and ers your way.
I also agree with karenann that you should get a second opion from a gyn/onc, they are the best when it comes to gyn cancers.

Remember there is always someone here to listen.....just try and take one day at a time...and remember there is LIFE after cancer....My prayers are with you...
Lots of s and ers

P.S. Please heed the advice given here on getting a second opinion from a gyn/oncologist...a specialist is definitely what you need on your team right now!
