Hi, my name is Sandy. I was just diagnosed with UPSC and have not yet seen a gyn oncologist. I am really frightened! I have been reading some of the posts here as well as researching online and it doesn't look good. I am wondering what the next step will be, how long treatment will take and what are my chances?? I have not yet been staged so I alternate between thinking I am stage 1 and then I swing to the other end of the scale. On top of that, I live in a small city and my insurance does not cover either of the specialists that are near to me so I may have to travel over 50 miles for treatment. They are also dragging their feet with the referral for treatment. Can anyone tell me their experience and timeline?
