I can normally be found on the colorectal board, as I had a rectal tumor diagnosis 3 years ago this month. I had extensive surgery and have been doing well since then.
Today I join you not as a patient with Uterine cancer but as a caregiver. In October my sister was diagnosed with it and had extensive surgery. Just this past week a chest CT scan showed she has many very small mets in both lungs, so Stage 4. She is 53 years old.
She is starting chemo of taxol and carboplatin next Friday.
I am impressed with her oncologist and his entire team, so no worries on that front.
I have been reading your stories here and am encouraged that while a cure is still only a dream, many of you are still living life fairly well.
I hope that I can be of help to you all as I seek help from you.
