Uterine cancer

I had been having a lot of gas and bloating for a long time, but because of a history of digestive problems, I attributed it to that. I had mentioned it to both my PCP and Gastro doctors and they more or less brushed my concerns aside. Finally in September my PCP ordered an abdominal ultrasound. The results were that my organs looked okay except they couldn't see my pancreas because of gas. Duh! Still concerned about the situation, I went to my gastro doctor again and she ordered an MRI the day before Thanksgiving.

still fighting

About four years ago I started having some pain around my anus felt like trapped gas like I couldn't release the gas and it was hurting. I would just figure out ways of releasing the gas and after a little while the pain would stop so a year-and-a-half went by and I figured that's all it was the pain is not constant. Well about two years after that started I started bleeding and I've always had kind of small bowel movements. And that being one of the signs I didn't pay attention to that either. But when the blood started then I knew something was going on.

All is not lost... Every Day is a Good Day

I was diagnosed with stage 1 small cell lung cancer in June of 2009 At the age of 61... AND I'm still kicking!  I just want to share that the statistics, though depressing, do not always apply. My diagnosis was a result of a clumsy fall at my friends cottage when I had a little too much liquid cheer. I broke three ribs as a result and the X-ray revealed a "shadow" on my lung.  I was hospitalized because of my broken ribs. Long story short, after a bunch of tests and a biopsy the cancer was diagnosed.

Esophageal cancer

Hello everyone,

 

My boyfriend just got diagnised of esophegeal cancer involving part of his stomach.  Right now they are staging to see if it is surviveable or it has metastized so  it will become stage four then.  Can you survice stage four?  Should we go for a second opinion?   Oncologist says if it stage four he wont get surgery and they wil give him chemo but not the full amount.

I have heard alot about the after surgery effects, and wonder if surgery is needed, after chemo and radiation.  A holistic practicioner said to internally cure any residual cancer cells by using hemp oil or taheebo tea. Testimonials are very favorable after hemp oil, and/or taheebo tea.  It is well worth the try.

I just had my second lumpectomy with nodes removed and I am anxiously waiting for the results.  I am supposed to start low dose Taxol soon. Anyone out there familiar with this please send me a note.  I am scared and anxious.

Hello,

Endometrial Clear Cell Carcinoma

In the fall of 2017, I noticed spotting.  I am 69 years of age and had been in menopause for 14 years.  I contacted a reputable hospital in Baltimore to see what might be causing this.  They steered me to the Gynecological Oncology Center for an evaluation.  I was seen and the physician recomended a d&c.  The d&c was performed and he said "well there is no cancer, but if you start bleeding again, you'll need a hysterectomy.  I guess I was so happy that there was no cancer, i didn't ask the questions I should have.  6 months later, the bleeding started again.  I contacted the doctor

Newbie on here but want to send positive vibes

OK. New here. Not sure what I should do. I was diagnosed with Liver cancer two years ago. My wonderful surgeon removed the large portion of my liver and I entered my first chemotherapy cancer free. Had a mild dose of Cisplatin and Gemzar. Did very well. Had an elderly husband at home so plenty to keep my mind busy. Two years later....now, my cancer has metastasized. Gosh, it pains me to have to even say that. Oh well, I'm fighting this one and joining here is one of those ways. Before I felt home-free. Just doing some mild chemo to prevent something showing up later.
