Cramping a lot here lately.

Options

I am not going on 2.5 years since diagnosed with Recurrance Uterine cancer.  Done the Carbo/Taxol, 35 days of Radiation (2x a day), Letrozole (didnt work), Doxil (left burns on my body) and currently on Avastin (which I have been told will not continue to work).  I had the discussion of where we go from here last week with Doctor (whom I was passed on to). 

Last two weeks I have begun to have severe cramping in the abdomen area, like mentral cramps I use to have all the time and also feel pressure on bladder as I have to go all the time now. 

Anyone out there ever experienced this pain?

    Dear NoTimeFor Cancer,

    Dear NoTimeFor Cancer,

    I just saw him last week.  We are doing another CT scan to see what is going on.  I know there is something (whether it is larger, more tumors, or other). It feels like it is pushing on my bladder.  I have never been pregnant but feel I now know what they mean with they say the baby is pushing up against the bladder.   I was diagnosed two years agon with recurrent Uterine.  Been going thru so many treatments, no sure where we will go next.  They say it is not curable.

    Hi Jacjac.   My niece has a

    Hi Jacjac.   My niece has a Stage 4b.  She got 28 shots of ER and 3  IR which thankfully went well.   She also has this symptom, months after her last rad session. 

    She describes it like an ache mostly, occasionally like a cramp depending on her position.  She also said that it is not really painful, just not comfortable.  

    How are you dealing with this right now? 

    Hope you feel better soon.

    The cramping feeling my just

    The cramping feeling my just be the pressure of the tumor around the bladder.  I use to make a trip from Florida to Houston, Tx with one bathroom / gas stop.  Now it takes me 4-5 and I really hate it when I am 15 miles from home and have to stop again.  The cramping comes and goes.  Just another life change.
