Celebrating 5 years

I just wanted to share my good news with my teal sisters. I just had my last 6 month checkup with my wonderful gynocological/oncologist, as it's been 5 years since I finished treatment for uterine papillary serous carcinoma. I've got no lasting side effects and no sign of cancer at all. When I started treatment in 2011, I was scared to death, after realizing the statistics for this type of cancer. I just want to offer hope to my sisters.....don't get hung up with statistics.....you are your own unique person with your own unique dna. I'm now on a yearly schedule to be seen, and my dr informs me I should be carefully assessed every year for the rest of my life. I'm ok with that (this is actually my second cancer....I had vaginal cancer in 2007 and kicked that one to the curb, too...lol!) Stay strong, sisters! Sending my love and prayers to all!

i will also  be a 5 year survivor of uterine papillary serous carcinoma in November. I wanted to share as well to give others support and hope that it is possible. Besides having fabulous doctors and incredible friends and family, I believe this journey has been as much about the mind and spirit as it has been about the body. After 3 surgeries, chemo, and radiation I have very minimal side affects and have been so blessed.

Sunflash and Haddie, that is wonderful news, especially since you both had UPSC.  When I first read the stats on this cancer, I thought I was given a death sentence (Stage II, Grade 3 - UPSC).  It is always encouraging to read of long term survivors of this vicious, agressive cancer.

Thank you both for posting!!!!
