New to all of this. Was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer in Oct. Had Radical Hysterectory on 11/16/09 & still experiencing some pelvic pain, bladder discomfort and nausea.
Saw Surgeon/Oncologist last Tues. Pathology report showed Adenocarcinoma of endometrium, endometroid type with focal squamous metaplasia, well-differentiated, FIGO Grade I associated with complex endometrial hyperplasia with atypia and a portion of residual polyp .
FIGO Stage = 1B.
Told by Oncologist no further follow up - Concerned since no lymph nodes were biopsied due to weight issue. Told to "wait & see" if cancer returns. Recommended no radiation since he said it would do no good at this time. Need to follow up with a PAP every 3 months for 3 yrs & 2x yearly for 2 years.
Confused since he said he would try to biopsy the lymph nodes and would need additonal treatment. Don't know if I need radiation or not or wait & see as he suggested.
Does anyone know is this the treatment recommended or should I seek a second opinion and have radiation? I am very confused at this point and after 8 wks I think I should be feeling somewhat better.
Any suggestions from anyone would be appreciated.
