Endometrial Stage III Cancer Diagnosis
On November 28th my world was turned upside down! I heard those dreaded words,
" I'm sorry but your biopsy shows you have cancer so I have referred you to a gynecologic oncologist."
Three days later I met him. They couldn't tell for sure if I had cervical or endometrial cancer. A Leep procedure determined that it was not cervical.
Eleven days later I had a total hysterectomy including bilateral ovaries and fallopian tubes. They were confident that I would have the surgery and I would be cured. The tumor was a grade 1, invasion less than 50% into the myometrium, no lymph node involvement, lower uterine segment involved but nothing in my cervix. Everything was looking great until the pathologist found cancer in my left fallopian tube! Ugh They said it is unusual because the tumor wasn't near the fallopian tube so somehow some cancer cells got away from the main tumor, travelled and implanted into my tube.
Went from surgery and cured to stage III and needing radiation and chemotherapy! I start the Portec 3 treatment plan on Feb. 6th. I am getting nervous!
