I was Dx'd with late stage aggressive Uterine cancer in Oct. 2010. Had hysterectomy, chemo, radiation, more chemo, and internal radiation. Ugh. It was horrible to go through and financially devestating as I couldn't work during my 8 months of treatment.
Anyway, just thinking back was all the pain worth it? Yes, I got to see my two nieces married, got to spend time with a newborn great-nephew, and created some wonderful memories with my family.
Recently I've had some blood in my urine and I'm super worried about reoccurence in the bladder. Of course every ache or pain I think is a reoccurence - but this blood in the urine thing has my anxiety in overdrive.
I try not to vent too much to my partner. We've been together 15 years and during my illness she has been my rock. We love eachother so much. I need to vent, but don't want to send her into fits of worry needlessly (hopefully).
Would so love to take her back to Hawaii for our anniversary in November - but as I'm sure you understand - treatment has taken every dime I have and every dime I don't have too!
Will be visiting the Dr tomorrow and hopefully have follow-up CT scans same day. Fingers crossed that the other shoe doesn't drop.
