Are any lesbians out there who have or have had a gynecological cancer? I have endometral cancer. I feel there is some baggage that comes with having a cancer of the reproductive organs that isn't present with other cancers - even breast cancer.

I was diagnosed with uterine cancer last June. I had a total hysterectomy and both external and internal radiation treatments. I've gone to Gilda's club for support but it seems like just about everyone there has had breast cancer. My partner has been supportive but she doesn't really understand exactly what I've gone through. Feel free to email me anytime.Coree

TCookie, your message is a few years old but I'm wondering how you are doing these days? I recently had surgery that revealed a surprise ovarian mucinous adenocarcinoma, stage 1, grade 1...not sure I understand "special burden" but even though (statistically speaking) I have a very good chance of no recurrence, I feel if I'm in the 1% club who got it in the first place, it can just as likely happen again so I see it as 50/50...either I will or I won't. Not to say that I'm not doing everything I can to keep myself healthy and proactive. Anyway TC, just wondering how you're doing... And the rest of you Sweet ****s, how's it going for y'all??? Doesn't appear that we're sharing too much with each other these days...hope life is coming along. Special thoughts of you all...just because! Ruby

I am wondering how you are coming along. again, thoughts of you, and the rest of you Sweet Grrls....xxooxxoo Ruby
