Gosh been awhile since I posted, this has burned me emotionally... Since 2009 I have been battling uterine Cancer. I go into remission then it comes back in one form or another so it seems. On the advice of my present Oncologist she wanted me to get second opinion. I agreed to go to the Nebraska Medical Centre in Omaha ( I dont mind being honest about where I went)... I ended up seeing the rudest Onco. It's been a struggle for me, minus adrymicyn all other drugs only put me in remission for months, whereas Adrymicyn gave me yr and half. The reason for visit was to see if my present onoclogist is on right track with treatments.......well this doc told me there is no more chemo treatments that can help me, yes bascially said go home and die. I was flabergasted, actually wanted to tell him off. How dare he! I cried along side my husband that nite, wondering what to do, get things ready for the end, even talked to him about his choice in new wife. Then I took a look at myself and wondered, here I am still working, still doing for myself, and the reason for second opinion was cuz we just cant' get a handle on this. My uterine cancer has caused some fluid build up in and around lung area, god bless me no lung cancer, and now it's moved to my right breast only the areola area. Uterine cancer is never found to travel to breast. But to be told to go home and die.....REALLY!....
After a meeting with my oncologist today, found that she is not in agreement with his choice of what he'd use to keep me going. Here's the thing, Im self suffiicent, Im doing for myself, I am eating and so on, it's these darn reoccrances. My oncologists tells me today that I am not the only one that this has gone to breast , it seems two ladies who have uterine cancer have had same symptoms as myself. They found one in Lincoln, Ne, and the other in PA. Ovarian cancer is usually one that spreads to breast. My doc was surprised to hear and the Oncologist her partner said it's going to be gemszar and oxyplatin for his patient, and she not only has it in her breast but in other ares of body and such a young age as 40. My doc came up with Gemszar and the oxyplatin before i went and seen the "oncologist with his second opinion". I am afraid of living, and dieing now. This second opinion doc has scared me emotionally. I have decided to check into cancer centres of america and going May 7th for thier advice, guidance with food and homopathic vitamins and medications. I told them on the phone I dont' believe in all the years of reserach there is only 3 drugs out there, and 2 from platin family for ppl like me. I am going into chemo for my 4th time when I return from chicago. I have started radiation on my areola area due to the pain and inflamation, as I have been told I have tissue cancer in that area, and it's not spread thank the good lord. I hope the radiation works and I can see a good improvement in that area.
I will never give up, I will not take "no" for an answer. The angerier I get the more fight I have. Someone has an answer for me out there and I intende to find it. I told my sister if and when I get into remission and I will take 2 yrs as a guideline Im going back to his office and ask him if he "remembers me" meaning the doc who told me to go home and die.
I believe in God his power his strength and ask for it. Yet there are some days where that is tested perhaps due to the devil is stopping in and making me crazy. I am young and will never give up! There is treatments out there with diet and exercise that will make this cancer of mine stay away and give me a good healthy life.
Thank u all for listening
