I was diagnosed last year w endometrial CA. Had surgery and against the advice of the RN in my family had series of three branch treatments. Was told 95 percent success rate but the RN was right....hurt to urinate for month etc. Almost a year to the day I was notified by PET scan that CA was back needed more invasive surf to my ureter. 8 hours of surf...thankfully no colostomy bag was told moderately differentiated and two more spots not noted in PET scan. Was to have five weeks of radiation an 12 weeks of chemo aft e r end of healing. Had first post op check and told another mass felt. Biopsy neg. But change in treatment to GET and radiation. Do not feel I am getting complete answers but also afraid to ask. Now what? Why change in treatment? Internet says poor prognosis. Can't hold urine. Cath out one week raging painful IT I. I LIVE ALONE IN REMOTE AREA. HAVE Brothers and sisters...not many friends n not much money. Want to live and scared I am dying. Please help me sort this out.
