My mother was diagnosed with stage 3c cancer one year ago. The docter said the majority of the "cancer" was in her omentum. She had a complete hysterectomy and removal of the omentum. After the surgey the doctor said she still had small spots on the lining of her liver and kidneys. He thought her cancer orginated in her ovaries but after a few days the final pathology came back as uterine. It has been confusing because she did not have any of the more usual early signs of uterine cancer. She had chemo every 3 weeks 5 times. Her last chemo was December. The doctor said even if the chemo was initially successful there was a 70 percent chance the cancer would return within one year. So life is hard with that constantly in the back of your mind.
I thought I would give the background...now for my current question and situation. About 2 months ago which would be about 10 months after the surgery my mom began having pain in her pelvic area similar to cramps which seemed to worsen when moving around. She also began having pain or worsening of pain after urination. She went to her regular doctor and did not have an infection so her oncologist ordered a ct scan. It came back looking okay except for a couple of benign tumors on her liver (dont remember name) which he said had been there likely for years. Also he said there was scar tissue and likely that was the cause of the pain. She is taking prescription pain meds and those help but leave her feeling tired and sluggish. Lately the last couple of weeks seh says the pain seems a little worser.
I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this?
