I was diagnosed with stage 1 uterine cancer in Nov. after a total hysterectomy for other reasons. All pre-op tests failed to show any sign of cancer. I also had a double hernia repair at the same time because, as my doctor said, they were going to be in that neighborhood anyway! Unfortunately, I developed infection in the incision a month later, which delayed any additional treatment, but luckily, the infection was confined to the upper dermal layers. I have seen one oncologist, who recommended 6 chemo threatments 21 days apart with one radition treatment either half-way through or at the end of the chemo, but I decided he was not the doctor for me because I never felt comfortable with him and never really had any faith in him. My husband did not like him either. So I am now waiting for my first appointment with another oncologist. In the meantime, my family and I feel like we are in limbo.
