    I have prayed that if there is anything that needs further investigation that things would fall into place to guide me onward. This afternoon I was talking with a lady that I  work with. We were talking about some female issues and  she told me that she loves her Gyn Doc and then, out of the clear blue, she said that if she ever has female troubles shes covered because he also does oncology. I was speechless because I had not even told her that I was hoping to find someone who could point me to a trusted Gyn/Onc (Surgeon). I am planning to give his office a call tomorrow. He practices at St. Als here in Boise.

    Hello Everyone, I'm a  68 year old breast ca survivor , 37 years  post surgery. Had a few spots of blood early October after being well past menopause. GYN did fractional d/c biopsy. Pathology came back carcinosarcoma of uterus. Cervix  came back ok. Colonoscopy back in May was ok. Now I see a GYN/oncol Tuesday. I feel fine had no more spotting but I am scared witless. I'm told this is an aggressive beast but there doesn't seem to be much understandable info on it. Just praying it has not spread.

    Hi lyn, wanted to welcom you

    Hi lyn, wanted to welcom you to this wonderful group that of course no one wants to belong to. I too was diagnosed with uterine carcinosarcoma back in may 2006.  It is an agressive cancer yet there are many in this group who are doing well after treatment.  I just Got  done with chemotherapy and internal radiation back on Nov. 3rd.  and am glad.   Im sorry you have to deal with this darn cancer but you came to the right place.  This group has helped me soo much and i believe it can for you too.  I made it through treatments and so far getting back to my life i had before for the most part.  I am 44 and also survived another cancer  24 years ago(Hodgkins Lymphoma).  Im glad you have an appointment on tuesday with a gynoclogical oncoligist.  I hope you let us know how it goes. 

    Lots of love, Janae

    Welcome Lyn

    I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this difficulty. I can really relate to the fear of the unknown! The ladies here are very kind to give feedback and encouragement. I too am new since this November. I did have spotting which led to a negative endometrial biopsy but am pursuing a sencond opinion. I have an appointment scheduled with a Gyn/Onc on Monday Dec. 12. I will let you all know how it turns out. Lyn, please know that I am praying with you that it has not spread.

    Warmest Regards,

    Thoughts and Prayers

    I havent posted in awhile. I saw the Gyn/Onc for the first time in mid December as I was still having either a watery or a rust colored discharge post endometrial biopsy done by an Obstetrical NP. The Gyn/Onc reviewed my endo biopsy results with me and said that I should feel confident that the negative result was accurate. I pushed him on it a bit and he said lets wait and watch until after the Holidays and I agreed. I have continued to have the same two types of discharge and some pain and cramping occasionally. Last Monday I actually had some small spots of blood which is the first of that since this past Oct. I had my second appointment with the Gyn/Onc late last week and he did not hesitate to schedule a D & C based on my symptoms. I was so relieved!!! That is scheduled for Thursday February 2. I am a bit scared of the procedure itself and of course awaiting the results. I hope you gals will keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I have been keeping you all in mine.

    D&C

    Good luck on your procedure and praying for good news. From my experience D&C a piece of cake (they put you out) compared to endometrial biopsy (ouch!). I don't know why they even do them. They hurt and give very limited info.

    I agree with CQ.... My D&C

    I agree with CQ.... My D&C was easy as well. I would much rather have that than deal with them sampling my tissue with me awake! Good luck and we will all  send you loads of support. Please come back and let us know how you are doing!

    Love and Hugs,

    I agree with the others. My d&c was a relatively simple procedure. That's also how they finally found the cancer but at least it was at an early stage. Good luck on Thursday and let us know how it goes. Kim

    Much Better Procedure

    I am post D&C now and I agree that it was a piece of cake compared to the enometrial biopsy. My Doctor told me I should hear the pathology results by Monday or Tuesday. I am resting and recovering (doing quite well today) and trying to think good thoughts. Thank you all for your willingness to share and for your encouragement and prayers.

    This is great news- so glad it went well for you and was better than you expected and that you are feeling quite well today- can't ask for more than that after a proceedure right?!  We'll be holding those good thoughts and prayers out for your results next week.  Glad you are trying to stay in a good place- enjoy your weekend.  Thank you for letting us know!!!  (((HUGS)))

    Ladies~ I am happy to say that the D & C results are negative for pre-cancer or cancer cells. I am feeling pretty good after the procedure and I am glad I am on this end of the whole mess! There is still no answer to what has been causing the PMB which leaves me slightly nervous but I just have to trust that I have done my thorough best for myself. I still have to report any PMB from 1 month post D & C forward. The Doctor said that sometimes a tumor can be in the uterine wall and won't show up unless a hysterectomy is done. Have any of you heard of this? For now, I am going to feel confident with the results from the D & C. Hugs and Prayers to you all.
