I was recently diagnosed with papillary adenocarcinoma - probable endometroid type. I am 27 and I do not have kids yet. I have not yet spoken to an oncologist about this diagnoses and what It means. All I know is that this cancer is treated with a hysterectomy and I am crushed by the idea of not being able to have children of my own. It is crushing my husband as well even though he won't say it. I recently started nursing school and love it! I can't want to help others and come out of this situation I just feel HORRIBLE right now and am very sad although I am trying to be strong.
Does anyone know anything about my type of cancer? I am so nervous I can barely eat just thinking about what the oncologist will say. My appointment is this Friday and my anxiety level is high.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
