CT after chemo shows no mets, no changes in lung nodules or sclerotic lesions bone - no evidence of

I discussed the scan with the reading radiologist.  I was Ia at diagnosis in September, with isolated tumor cells in one sentinel node, only 2 nodes sampled.

Interestingly, my spleen was only slightly over the upper limit of normal (14 cm vs 13 cm), with slight enlargement of the venous drainage from spleen.  He says he cannot call it varices.  So no answer as to why I have had splenomegaly.

No evidence of metatstases, no fluid.  All the questionable spots (tiny lung nodules, occasional sclerotic lesion bone) are all exactly the same, so very unlikely to have been disease.  So the scan results are excellent, and reassuring.  Now I have to decide whether to do whole pelvic radiation, Intensity-modulated radiation targeted at the lymph nodes, or just vaginal cuff brachytherapy, and quickly.

    Great news! I did me have

    Great news! I did me have brachy. I thought I was going to, but the radiologist thought it was too much for my situation as the tumor was high up in the uterus. So I had targeted radiation.

    I was 3a, grade 2. Lymph nodes and pelvic was clear, a few cells on one ovary.

    No.  Thought never even

    No.  Thought never even crossed my mind!  My goodness, I haven't thought about celebrating anything since diagnosis six months ago.  But now, I'm just suddenly way too exhausted.  Still recovering from chemo, had out of town family here today for kid's school show.  After I got the news, I was suddenly totally exhausted.  On the couch.  

    I feel guilty sharing good news, DMK, when I know you just had bad news.  I'm praying for some good news for you, too.

    never feel bad about sharing good news

    or bad news. We want all of the news because how else can we celebrate a good result and commiserate with a not so favorable one?

    Great News Zsazsa

    That is great news.  These decisions are so hard.  My prayer for you is that you reach that decision that will be perfect for you.

    I've tried looking at uterine

    I've tried looking at uterine cancer support groups on Facebook - it's somehow nothing like this message board.  I feel that I have a small community of supportive women going through this together, whereas the facebook string of postings just scares me.  It somehow seems like anonymous cries in the dark.  I'm very grateful for this community.

    Good!

    My CT scan was clear also, such a relief! Although they can’t find my appendix, my Dr says I probably do have one and it is just hidden.

    Same!

    I can't say enough how fortunate I feel to have found this group.  Even other groups on this website don't have the camraderie, the legit solid information, and the support of this wonderful circle of warriors.  Topics are discussed intelligently and thoroughly, and love abounds.  We are surely blessed to have each other!  

    I am so happy to hear your NED news!  I also had a scan after chemo that showed NED, and had to make a quick decision about radiation.  I agonized.  I understand it's a tough decision, and I'd never want to advise you either way, but it may help you to get a second opinion if you're unsure what to do.
