August 2 I called the doctor's office thinking my heavy bleeding, long period, then spotting was "age" related. I'll be 43 soon. An appointment was made for the next day. Biopsy was done an the following Tuesday I was told I had uterine cancer. On Satuday I had a D & C but the results were not back as of yesterday. My gyn wanted to consult with a gyn oncologist in a town 50 miles away. The doctor was on vacation but they consulted yesterday and decided to do a CA-125 blood test. I'll get the results today and that will determine if surgery is done in my home town or in Indy. He said if it came back as 20 or less surgery will be here anything higher they will biopsy lymph nodes so surgery will be in Indy. I've had time to research the doctor in hospital in Indy and I know I'll be in good hands either way. I'm glad to find this site and have been reading the web pages and forum.
