@tcy941 This is frightening news and not at all what you likely expected to hear. It certain wasn't for me. My gynecologist called me after he read the results of my biopsy from pathology (I had a D&C) and then I invited me to come straight to his office. Endometroid adenocarcinoma, FIGO Grade 1. We talked about the results and he asked me where I would like to go for treatment since I live in a rural area and there are no treatment options here. I chose Mayo Clinic in Rochester where I was already a patient in orthopedics. On my way home from that talk with my gynecologist I was so stunned that I made a wrong turn and wound up in a neighborhood I'd never been in before. I found my way out but realized then how rattled I was. Unfortunately this was a Friday afternoon so I had to spend the weekend with this diagnosis before the plans were in place to go to Mayo Clinic. It was terrible weekend, I didn't sleep well, and every time I woke up all I could think about "cancer".

There are several of us here in this Support Group who have been diagnosed and successfully treated for endometrial cancer. I'm quite certain that others will come here with their support and thoughts for you.

In the meantime, may I suggest that you do not troll the internet with Google? You'll turn up all sorts of wacky information that isn't accurate and has the potential to make you feel very anxious. If you decide to read on the internet and would like information, I'd like to suggest that you stick to valid and reliable sites such as Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, MD Anderson, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centers or the National Cancer Society. I can provide you with links if you like.

When did you receive the diagnosis? How are you feeling today? Did you discuss a treatment plan with your gynecologist/provider?
