Dear Ararat,

The easiest way to locate other CSN members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as "endometrial adenocarcinoma," "stage 4 uterine," "radiation therapy," etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the “Advance search” link listed underneath the search field. The major categories of content on CSN are blogs, discussion boards, “About Me” pages, etc. For example, if you are looking for a specific resource on the Resource Library, you can limit your search to resources only by clicking on the "resource" and "advanced search" button at the bottom of the "advanced search" box. Remember that you must be logged on if you want to post anything on a discussion boards, view personal pages, use the chat room, etc.

Cordially,
Your CSN Staff

I was diagnosed with uterine cancer in December 09. Had surgery Jan 4th, when they went in to take out the baby oven, found cells on my appendix and took that out too. I started same treatment as yourself, and only 6x they tell me, i have 5 to go. I was told that I have a light dusting of cells that need to be destroyed in my stomach area, and this should do it they tell me. I do not have to have radiation, and I feel blessed. I take a shot day after treatment called nuelasta am sure you know what this is. I had terrible side effects from this shot. I am new to all this of course and starting to lose my hair, having the worst time ever with it.
