Wanted to say thank you to all of you for sharing your experiences about this rare a cancer. I was diagnosed with Mmmt May 2011, after postmenapausal bleeding at 54.I was stage 1A,they did a hysterectomy removing ovaries,tubes,etc.I also had radiation treatment,but was told no chemotherapy needed.At the time I questioned both oncologists,but they said no.I had second stage breast cancer in 1987,had lumpectomy,radiation,chemotherapy.I know all of those treatments and the good Lord gave me 26 more years.My Mmmt cancer came back Feb.2012 ...I had surgery to remove my omentum which had a tumor in it,1 tumor was in para aortic node,2 tumors were in the pelvic area,and 1 in my colon.Thats right, 5 of those buggers.While in the hospital had to have a second surgery because they nicked my colon,and Iam now on a temporary cholostomy bag.I then had 6 treatments of carbo/taxol.Had clean pet scans until April 13 this year,showing 1 suspicious lesion on my liver supposedly 1.9 centimeter.Dr. said it shouldn't be that hard to remove,so had a MRI today to give the drs. more info.Guess I'm going to get cut again,and I don't like it but whatever it takes to fight this I will do!I don't want to scare anybody that has this cancer,my struggles are not yours.We are all different,how we respond to the treaments for this cancer.I just wanted the people that post about there experiences with Mmmt to know,you are helping many of us that are silent.The past 2 years I have looked on here for guidance,help,and out of fear.Thank you again, for giving me the strength to go on.
