Since I've been back, I have been missing some faces.  Time for another "Roll Call"!  This time for everyone on all the "Below the Belt Cancers" and anyone just trolling the posts.  I am "here" and know of one "oldtimer " who is quite well...about 6 years now.  I am 5 1/2 years out of chemo and still NED, thank God!  If you know of anyone who is ok, but had rather not be mentioned, just say "and another survivor"  Love, Debra

    MMMT stage 2 grade 3 NED 18 months. Waiting for another CA 125 blood test since my  numbers doubled in the last month and they were always low.. If the go up again I will have to get another set of CT scans.  They want me to have neck surgery but I want to wait until I know for sure what is going on.   All of you are so nice and helpful.    Stay strong.  Sue

    I was diagnosed in May 2014. After total hysterectomy was told I was Grade 2, Stage 1a. I had 6 rounds of Taxol/Carbo and 3 Brachytherapy. I have been NED since November 2014.

    I don't post often but read posts everyday. I have learned so much from all of you. Thanks for being there when I needed it.

    Introduction to Group

    Hi,

    New to this site and this world...  you guys are the first breath of fresh air and I thank you.  I was diagnosed in Dec, hysto in Feb. DX was Stage 1A/grade 3 UPCS (hope I said that reasonably intelligently).  I have had 2 chemos.. sort of.  I was suppose to to have platinum and taxol.  I was hypersensitive to taxol and only had platinum for first two.  I was suppose to have Platinum and Taxotere last week but white count down so will try again this week.  Sure hope no hypersensitvity on this go.  When I finish this chemo I have several weeks then go thru 25 external radiation treatment and the 3 day of the internal one...   then 3 more chemos.  I am feeling great and have a tremendous faith that all will turn out as it should and I will be able to deal with the future and enjoy the path as I go along it..  (sounds corny...   but I am going to give it one heck of a try!)

     

    Patty :)

    Another IVb survivor

    Had surgery May, 2010 for UPSC (adenocarcinoma) stage IVb that spread from the uterus to both ovaries, the omentum, and the small intestine.  Also had gallbladder and appendix out at the same time (had gallstones).  Went through 6 rounds of carboplatin and taxol, which I finished in Sept., 2010, so I'm 5 years and 7 months out from chemo (and next week, I'll be six years out from surgery).  Have been NED since surgery and chemo ended.  Had one scare (unexplained mass) which turned out not to be cancer (it didn't grow over time).  Down to yearly check-ups now at two different doctors (have a gyn/onc in one hospital who did the surgery and an oncologist in another who did my chemo).  Due to go back to the gyn/onc in June, but haven't been called to schedule yet.
