Hi all. I'm so glad to have found a supportive place to talk. I was diagnosed with endometrial adenocarcinoma June 14, 2006. I had a complete hysterectomy on July 12th (I'm 45 years old). I have an appointment tomorrow to discuss my pathology report. At the hospital, my surgeon told us that it looked good, we caught it early and he didn't think any further treatments would be necessary. Tomorrow I find out for sure. Meantime, some of my incisions are "weeping" and I'm experiencing a decent amount of pain inside and at my belly button.
That's the physical side of it. Emotionally, I'm all over the place. Nothing like having to deal with cancer, recovery, being out of work (I don't have disability pay), forced menopause, to say nothing of being an independent single woman used to doing everything for herself!
I know that God is with me, my faith is very important to me. I also know that I want to learn lessons and take good things from all this. Sometimes I do, sometimes I just want to cry.
I'm sure you all know the feeling... it's nice to be able to share it with people who are going thru it. My family is very supportive, I just don't want to "whine" to them all the time!
Thanks for listening... any and all replies appreciated!
