I'm 37 and had a radical hysterectomy 3 years ago due to uterine cancer. I am still having a difficult time coping with not being able to have children. My marriage is going downhill...it appears my husband is not coping well either but refuses to talk or go to counseling. I brought up the idea of adoption but he does not want a child that is not his and I feel as though he blames me for getting sick. Don't get me wrong, I feel so grateful that I've been given a second chance and since then I've finished my bachelor's degree and am currently in a master's program. I've never really talked to anyone, professional or otherwise about my feelings other than my mom who had the same cancer 10 years prior to my diagnosis. Mom just tends to tell me what I want to hear. I'm open to any ideas on how I can begin healing emotionally. ~~I'm glad I found this network and wish everyone the best.
