I was diagnosed with uterine cancer after it metastasized. The gynecological oncologist did a biopsy of the tumor, but decided against a hysterectomy. He wanted me to start chemotherapy immediately. The chemo put the cancer in remission. Now I am watching and waiting. Doctors seem split on whether to do a hysterectomy. When I am strong enough I want to undergo the surgery. Is there anyone else who is in a similar situation or faced a similar decision with ovarian cancer? Is there anyone who still has their ovaries after treatment? I am puzzled by the doctor's hesitation and hope you can shed some light from your own experiences. Thank you for your help.
Best wishes & God Bless,
