Hello All,
I had a biopsy done 2 days ago, and my gynocologist called me today & told me that I have early stage uterine cancer. Although it took the wind out of my sails since I am still dealing with side effects from the Folfox (Stage II colon cancer), I was not really surprised, since the gene that bestowed the colon cancer also bestows uterine cancer.
It is not classified as a metastasis, but a separate cancer. Several women in my family had uterine cancer first, had hysterectomies, and got colon cancer 20 years later.
So the bad news is another cancer. The good news is that treatment is surgery only--NO CHEMO!!! Wheeeee.
Anyway, just had to tell you all. You helped me get through the last one, and I'm counting on you again.
God Bless,

I am so sorry, Kirsten. It seems so cruel to have news like this when you are just getting over the chemo. At least no more of that - personally I'd rather have surgery any day than a long course of chemo. At least when you come round you know that you're going to get a little better every day - not like chemo when you keep being knocked back. Thank goodness they got it early.

Let us know when the surgery is scheduled.

All the best, Catherine

Hi Kirsten,

Wow! What a blow! However, how wonderful that you have caught the cancer early. I am so sorry that you will have to undergo surgery, but am thankful that no chemo will be given.

Please know we are here for you once again. Let us know your details as they arise.
