Never thought I would have to make a post like this but I am lost and scared right now
As years passed hubby and I wanted kids so I lost 80 pounds and my cycles became normal again, went to a fertility doctor and was put on femara for one year with no results, had one IUI that didn't work and due to finances at that point we stopped. Gained weight again and cycles stopped, as I approached 35 in the upcoming year I wanted to get fit and start trying again. Had a D&C to remove a polyp, got a call from my Gyn's office to come in for the results of the biopsy, I have anxiety so I didn't want to wait until Monday so I went to my family doc and he was able to tell me what the pathology report said.
Adenocarcinoma, Endometriod Grade 2 Arising on the background of Atypical Complex Hyperplasia
I went to the gyn to discuss getting my periods back on track since they have been absent for so long, nothing no symptoms! I go in for fertility and come out with cancer
ANYWAYS I see my Gyn on Monday and see what the next steps are I'm assuming to discuss the path results more and get refereed to a onc, but my family doctor did say he feels this is a blessing in disguise to catch it early.. Not sure how he knows this, we have no children so knowing I have to have a hysterectomy has devastated me and I am scared about everything.
I never thought it would be me and I am terrified. I am a nutcase right now, I am fine one minute then my emotions just rush out and I get terrified of everything. I blame myself for not going in sooner about absent periods and I am afraid I waited far too long and it will have spread.
I feel 100% fine physically, but now every little ache or pain I get scares the crud outta me.
I'm scared it isn't going to be caught early and the grade 2 scares me even more. I don't know if it's even possible to harvest my eggs or if it's too dangerous to wait
Just wanted to vent, never thought I would have to join a cancer network but you all seem like a great supportive group of warriors and I am blessed to have found this place
Thank you for listening
