Hi I am new to this site. I have been living with Endometrial cancer for nearly three years. I started with a D & C for Polyps that found the endometrial cancer Grade 1A stage 2 at initial diagnois. I had a robotic total hysdirectomy a month later. 9 months I had Bilateral Pulmonary Embolism that also showed enlarged retropertineal lymph nodes. They were monitored via cat scan for 1 year and biopsied in Oct 2012. Confirmed to be Entrometrial cancer. Upon physical exam found additional nodes in supraclavical area. Had 6 rounds of Carbo/Taxol starting in Nov. 2012 finished in March. WIll start 30 rounds of IMRT radiation therapy on June 19th. Very scared for the short term and potential long term side effects. Has anyone out there undergone this much radiation- my full abdomen and left thoracic region will be treated.
