I am new to this site. I was just diagnosed with serous carcinoma uterine cancer a couple of days ago. I feel scared and alone and I glad to find this site...knowing there are others like me. I had no symptoms and was shocked with the diagnosis. Each doctors(various doctors involved in my surgery) visit reveals more discouraging news. This afternoon I was told that the 5 year survival rate is 30-50% with treatment!! I was devastated. How does everyone learn to cope with this? My surgery is scheduled for Feb. 18th so I don't even now for sure what stage it is, but doctors are telling me that they feel that it is advanced. I am scheduled for robotic surgery and the oncologist suggests both chemo and radiation. What should I expect? What is ahead of me? How difficult are the treatments?
