Hi, I'm 45 and have just received late stage 2 (until they check for other places) uterine cancer. I had abnormal bleeding for a couple of years and it was chalked up to being in my 40's by the docs...but symptoms got worse and worse, heavier, more pain, radiating pain, etc...until I ended up at the ER for blood loss and severe pain.
So, last week I had a D & C which gave this result. Do any of you who have had this know or remember if you had pain in your lower back, upper leg/groin area (this one kills)...hip bone, etc? I will be having a hysterectomy and they will check lymph nodes for spreading in 2-3 weeks but I wonder with all of this consistent pain if it has spread.
Also, does anyone have good diet to avoid me "feeding" the cancer cells? I've read some things on the web that are scaring me and I can't eat as I'm afraid to feed those bad cells. Literally everything seems bad for me now!
Can anyone help? THANKS.
