    Stage 4B Uterine Cancer
    Maggie, I was diagnosed March 2009 prior to surgery with ovarian cancer after several months of doctors telling me I had different GI problems. On March 5th during surgery they found the large tumor was not from my ovaries but from my uterus. After a few weeks I began a regimen of Taxol/Carbo chemotherapy--6 rounds every 3 weeks. Treatment ended July 2009. Since that time all my bloodwork and scans have been normal. However; I feel the celebration will wait until the 5 year mark,,,almost at year 1.
    I have been exercising which includes walking as much as I can and working for my son-in-law one day a week in his landscaping business which has proven to be the best exercise along with some sunshine.
    I try to eat more healthy now and take all in moderation. I have read and searched for what foods to eat but you find good and bad in all things so I try to eat a balance. I stopped working to reduce stress and heal. I had a very stressful executive position in healthcare. I have so enjoyed the time gardening and doing a lot of housework. I am ready now to go back to work and am actively looking.
    I feel a positive attitude is the number 1 item to be on our list. I feel very fortunate each day I am healthy. I look up at the sky when I walk as not to miss one thing I may see and enjoy each breath so much more. Taking time to look around has helped. I was always too busy to enjoy what I had, and it is the simple things that mean the most. Hard lesson to learn.
    Not sure I gave you anything new or useful, just my experience.
    God Bless,
