I finally got my MRI results (MRI was done on 4/5). The doctor did not call me back but his main nurse called and told me that the cancer did not spread. That is good!!
But I am confused by some things I have read. So they can tell that it did not spread but I won't know the stage or anything till after surgery? Should they have told me the grade and stage of the cancer from the MRI? When I first met with the GYN-ONC, he could not answer those questions because he was not the one who did my surgery.
He currently has me taking Megestrol 2 times a day. Since I have started this medication, I have cramping everyday. It is not as bad as it was before (surgery) but it is getting a little annoying but I can by-pass it without taking anything and I am fine. I do not see my gyn-onc until the end of May. But next week I am going to another specialist because I am/was severely anemic. The gyn-onc wants me to get my levels up so I will not have to have a blood transfusion when I have the hysterectomy.
So is that they will be able to tell if it spread after I have the hysterectomy?
Sorry I am confused by all the information that I have read, and the information that I am getting from the gyn-onc. I do know one thing for sure, I will have my questions that I had before I meet him and additional questions that I have now.
