I waited 8 days.   It was very hard to wait becuase you can imagine anything.

about 10 days for the final. In my case it was UPSC, and my initial docotor wanted to get the news to me ASAP so I could get an appointment to a GO.  Getting the right diagnosis is more important than a few extra days of waiting, as horrible as it is to wait.  Also, I went for a second opinion where I ended up getting treatment and they wanted the actual slide not just review what the first pathologist reported. This only took a day once they received the slides at the large teaching hospital. I think if it had been benign or a low grade finding they might not have rushed it. Waiting is the hardest part of the initial diagnosis.

My gyn called me with the news two days after the D&C, then met with me two days after that. I was told it would be a week but they got me the information much sooner. I hope you don't have to wait any longer than absolutely necessary! The waiting part is some of the most difficult.

My D&C was done March 21. I had an appointment for results on April 10 (set up with assistant), but gynecologist told assistant that I didn't have that much time and to come to the office March 27 and that she'll made space for me in her schedule no matter what. That's when I knew something was wrong.

I got adenocarcinoma type 3, aggressive, so my gynecologist wanted to make sure I got to a gyno-oncologist asap. She actually got up from her chair after telling me the news, picked up the phone herself and made the call to the gyno-oncologist who operated on me April 15. Her hope was that they would catch it before it spread. I got stage 1a, but because it was type 3, I'm getting brachytherapy soon.

Yeah, when I got the call "can you come in tomorrow?" I knew something wasn't right.  I don't know if I thought it was that bad, but I remember everything about that day.  

Waiting is the hardest part.

I had my D&C on a Tuesday after Memorial Day. Was told it would take about a week or 10 days to get results. She called me Friday and asked me to come in for the results. So maybe no news is good news!

I had an endometrial biopsy in the office.  2 days later, GYN called to give me the bad news.  We had been expecting cancer - but it was worse.  UPSC/clear cell.  She called me the minute she had the results back.

2 weeks after my D+C and I had called in between to check. My drs always have us come in for results to discuss. They never call with results.

Went to the doctor and everything came back negative.like a ton of bricks life’s off my chest. I think I felt like I took my first breath after 2 weeks.He said it was thicken with folds and know they are going to watch and see with follow ups and when I get my next cycle how I do.As happy as I am with my results I can’t help but feel for everyone else that’s going threw this.my thoughts are with you and hope many more get good news I will still be reading and staying in touch.thank you ladies for your support.

Hi Dafad123  

Yes, I got my results.  It's cancer, but it's type 1, so I'm really relieved by that.  I have a hysterectomy scheduled for July 12th, and the surgeon expects it to be laparoscopic and to be a one-and-done.  I really hope it's that straight forward.  We'll see....

And I'm SO glad your results are good!  Congraulations, and wishing you all the best for a cancer free future!!

Hopefully no further treatment other than surgery.   The surgery should be straightforward and most endometrioid cancers are caught early so your chance of being early are good.

Thanks Forherself - I'm hoping the timing is good and the treatment straightforward.  We'll see - fingers crossed.  :)

Whitby, so happy to hear it is a grade 1 cancer. I know that probably sounds strange to say! Good luck on your surgery and please come back and let us know how you are doing. It sounds very promising for you so far.

Love and Hugs,

Cindi

Thank you, TeddyandBears_Mom.  I got my pap smear results back yesterday, and they were clear, so that's a good thing, and I'll take any good results I can get!
