Newly diagnoses with metastatic endometrial non small cell lung cancer

Hi I am new to this group. I am 64 years old with a history of uterine cancer. 

I had uterine cancer four years ago, which was caught early.  I had a complete hysterectomy and things were going along fine with my regular checkups.  Then in February of this year I was taken to the emergency room with shortness of breath when they found blood clots in my lungs.  

The scans also showed several nodules in my lungs.  After scans and a lung biospy it was determined I had metatstatic endometrial non small cell lung cancer.  I just had my second round of chemo yesterday (7/11/19).  I am doing OK, but very scared.  I know this type of cancer does not have a good prognoses but my doctor is optimistic about my treatment and feels the chemo should take care of the lung tumors.  Her plan is 6 rounds of chemo and then to put me on oral hormones to control the tumors since they are estrogen receptive.

Anyone else out there going through a similar situation? I'd love to hear from you.

Hi Tuckercat, 

Welcome to CSN and thank you for sharing your journey. I suggest reposting this post in the discussion board section of our site, where many more people would see it and could provide support and information. I suggest posting in the uterine cancer board, as it sounds like you may have a recurrent metastatic endometrial cancer in the lungs.

Take care,
