Hello everyone. I am new to CSN and my mom was just diagnosed with Uterine Cancer 3 weeks ago. She is 1 week post-op from her hysterectomy. The surgeon was so sure that it was contained in her uterus but when she went back to the dr. last week, we were told that traces of the cancer were found in her pelvic lymph nodes. She should begin her radiation treatment at the end of this month whic she will do for 5 weeks and then a course of chemotherapy that will last 21 weeks (once/twice every 3 weeks). This was such a shock for us all. You see my dad passed away 7 yrs. ago from Melanoma and I never in my wildest dreams would have thought my family would be going through this again. I almost fell selfish to think that I can't go through this again and this makes me feel horrible when it is my mother who will be going through this horrible disease we call cancer. Could anyone out there explain the usage of this board and where to locate chat rooms etc. I have read many of your posts already and feel the closeness that each of you have towards each other.
