My mom (61) was just diagnosed with poorly differentiated endometrial carcinoma stage 3 through a biopsy after bleeding once 11 years after menopause. She is scheduled for a complete hysterectomy on December 9. I am so afraid and worried and am not familiar with the severity of her cancer but I have been reading some of the survival stories and it certainly brings hope. Please reply if you have any info that might be of help for my family or her in the upcoming weeks. So far, the Dr. said that we have to see after the surgery weather or not she will need chemo or radiation. We are hoping it is contained in the uterus. From what I have read it seems most people had to undergo further treatments. Thank you...
