Hi. I had a D&C in Dec 2013 because of heavy bleeding and pain and the pathology report showed both Type 1 and Type 2 (UPSC) uterine cancer. I had a radical hysterectomy in January which staged my cancer as Stage 1B. The tumor was grade 1 endemetroid (sp?) embedded deep into the uterine wall but the hysterectomy also showed about 10% USPC cancer cells. My oncologist recommended chemo & radiation but has sent my report to Hopkinsfor a 2nd opinion. A few people told me they think the treatment seems overly-aggressive. I'm 52 years old with a 14 & 12 year old so am ok with taking the "better safe than sorry" approach.
Has anyone else had a similar diagnosis? If so, what treatments & outcomes have you experienced?
