I wanted to post that I just got my results back this afternoon (Thursday) from my cat scan I had done on (Tuesday morning) and it shows I have "NO" evidence of disease or metasis to other organs so I am Very happy and relieved and so is my Family. I was originally diagnosed back in February of 2011 so now I am 3 years out from diagnosis. I was diagnosed at Stage 1 of UPSC and underwent 6 rounds of carbo and taxol and 3 rounds of brachytherapy. My cancer was a large polyp at 5 centimeters. I still have 2 more years to be diligent and watchful and I Never ever let my guard down with this cancer. I know this is a terrible and very scary type of cancer (UPSC) to be diagnosed with and it is such a rare and aggressive cancer. I go back and see my oncologist in 3 more weeks as I normally see him 2x a year.
I just hope that I can continue to remain cancer free and with NO evidence of disease for now and in the future. I enjoy life every day and live life to the fullest and hearing that I had cancer did change me. I am eating a lot healthier and better since being diagnosed three years ago.
I also wanted to ask you women on the board about peanuts - I did read in the American Cancer Society booklet that if you have peanuts it will thwart cancer so I have been having shelled peanuts for 3 years and have them Every day a bowl full of them - it has definitely helped, but I am wondering if any of the women have eaten peanuts on an everyday basis either the shelled peanuts or cashews or walnuts or any other kind of peanuts to help with the cancer.
Any insights on food you can give me would be appreciated. I do not have much meat - I have a couple of meatballs during the week along with spaghetti - I have coffee 2 x a week and we just bought a Keurig. I also eat fruit, salad, yogurt, baked potatoes and soup during the week and I am also trying to lose some weight.
Also, I wanted to mention to the women on this board who are fighting UPSC or any other kind of uterine cancer that should they have a reoccurrence, my heart goes out to everyone of you and I wish you all the best going through more chemo and keep up the good fight. Never, ever give up. Just enjoy each day and be thankful for every day. No one knows what tomorrow will bring or even next week, next month or even next year so do try and enjoy each and every day.
