First Dx July 2010, Tx hyst etc, chemo
Oct 2011
Recurrence, bad CT 7 months after end of Chemo. Tumor .

Oct 24 surgery

Just got home to from surgery in Mt Sinai, NY were my doc did resection of colon and totally removed tumor. Pathology should be in in a few days. Hydrooxycode great pain killer! I'm a bit loopy but happy loopy.  In Israel, Most wanted to shrink tumor with Chemo then operate. I just couldn't handle living with tumor in me and chemo weakening me further prior to operating. Dr says he did 'reset' and now I am back to original post surgical self where I was post surgery one. I'm still a sick BUNNY with Stage IV B endometrial ca but area is clear of tumors and larger microscopic badguys.
This time round need chemo also in maintenance and more CT and pet scans to monitor. Also Dr Judah Folkman angiogenisis meds Avastin. Read up on his life Amazing. Book Folkmans War.
Doc says my physical health going into this difficult surgery is better than last year!
I owe it to you gals, David Servan Screiber book and diet.

Great news, Sara, that the tumor could be resected and you're in recovery mode. What chemo will you be doing in addition to the Avastin? I'm glad all has gone well.
