My Mom may have uterine cancer according to her Ct scan of her abdomen. She is having a hysterectomy on 8/26 with biopsies, it will be done by a gynecologic oncologist. She said she is shocked by this tentative diagnosis. She has been working full time as a nurse up until 2 weeks ago when she landed in the ICU for a blood infection (sepsis). She recovered well from that and looks well. She is cooking and doing light housework. The gyn-onc said she has a large mass in her uterus and some small spots outside the uterus according to the cat scan. What is the chance that she could have advanced uterine cancer and feel fine? She complains of being tired, but she was just discharged less than a week ago from the hospital. She had around a 40 lb weight loss which seemed to of leveled off since last summer. I am just afraid of what the biopsy will show. She is to have a ct of her chest tuesday to rule out lung nodules so they can do the hysterectomy. The doc said if she does have them they will have to shrink those first before the hysterectomy, which I don't understand. Wouldn't my Mom be in worse shape if she had advanced cancer? I just am sick with worry. I keep trying to find positive aspects to focus on. The said her tumor markers were fine, by the way. She said she has no other symptoms, such as bowel or bladder problems. Good Luck to everyone dealing with this. It truly stinks.
