My Mom's biopsy results just came back and what the doctors had originally thought was a sarcoma came back as a carcinoma, originating in the uterus.
My Dad didn't ask any more (which drives me nuts) but her appointment with the Gyn Oncologist is in a couple of weeks. Until then, we are just waiting and feeding her the best foods we know how. I hate the waiting and feel like we should be doing something else.
Meanwhile, she has a large tumor in her right leg (top back near hamstring), which we thought was the primary, but it's not. It's so painful that she can hardly walk any longer and must use a walker for the little walking she does do. It is also in her left leg, pelvis (this was shown on CT scan and MRI - would this be the uterus?) and lungs.
The doctors said it's slightly easier to treat, however when she first when in 2 weeks ago they said it was too advanced to treat (this they told her without even having done the biopsy).
We are looking into alternative treatments as well and since there seems to be more active voices on this discussion board verses the sarcoma one, I thought I would ask for some hope.
She won't talk about it either, which is hard. I am so sorry all of you having to go through all of this....I just never knew....until now.
