I was told it was only a 1% chance for recurrence but that they actually got it all. Thats very interesting what you said about the pathology report? I find it hard to be so proactive, I had my surgery in Texas, we then moved back to California. I went to 3 highly rated gyno oncologists none of whom used a speculum the fourth gyno oncologist told me she would use a speculum but didn’t expect to find anything she was very surprised when she did. Had I not been so proactive I doubt I would be around now to write this.
Just make sure from now that your dr uses a speculum. Be safe.

@jeanadair123 My hysterectomy was performed at Mayo Clinic by a gyn-oncology surgeon. I've been followed at Mayo Clinic since then. It was during a follow-up that the "polyp" was found in the vaginal cuff. And yes, every time I'm been seen a speculum is used. I'm wondering why would a gyn-oncologist not use a speculum? I'm not a medical professional but I wonder how they could visualize the entire vagina without a speculum?

You've been through so much with endometrial cancer, recurrence, and then breast cancer. How are you feeling? How do you take care of you?
