My husband's cousin just had a hysterectomy last Thursday and they found Stage II endometrial cancer. They are telling her the only treatment is hysterectomy AND they left her ovaries. Do any of you know anything about Stage II endometrial cancer?

I know that the survival/cure rate for the 'regular' uterine cancer is in the 90% range, and not nearly as aggressive and fast-growing as UPSC. She may have had all the treatment she needs to feel safe. But I'll see what I can find. (((((Deanna))))) You doing okay?

This is the week before chemo, so I am feeling very good. We have done a lot of traveling the last few days, so I am a little worn out, but feel good. We traveled from Missouri to Indiana and back over the weekend for a funeral. My SIL's FIL passed away and we wanted to be there for her and her husband. I wasn't really sure how I would feel, but I did it and I feel good. It was kinda nice to get a change of scenery.
I'm going to do a little researching too. Thanks for the reply.
Congrats on getting through treatment #5 today. I hope you feel okay over the post treatment period.

Hi Deanna and Linda is right if it's not the aggressive kind like we have she should be fine.

Thanks for the reply. My understanding from what my MIL said, is that it is endometrial CA, but I haven't had a chance to talk with her yet. She is recovering from her surgery, so the next time I feel like traveling, we will probably go see her.
