While any member can create a new forum topic or respond to an existing topic, this page was created to provide members with quick links to certain posts on topics that others have found useful or informative. You can also search the CSN cite for other posts on topics of interest (see search tips, below).

What do you wish someone had told you? - Includes a lot of advice from different members about what to ask your doctor(s) when you first learn you have uterine cancer.

Tips for surgery and after? - A list of suggestions for those facing their first surgery for uterine cancer.

Ladies going through chemo - how are you doing? Or those just starting or curious - Although the posts date from 2015-2016, many of these comments still have value today since treatments can be the same for many women.

Roll Call - Periodically a member will initiate a topic asking those on the board to share some brief information about their cancer experience.  Search for the phrase roll call in the Search by Title box to see the latest and earlier versions of the roll call list.

Tribute Page - A list of women who sadly didn't survive their cancer, but whose participation on this site remains very meaningful to other board members.

NCCN Uterine Cancer Patient Guidelines for Uterine Cancer - A publication of National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) that is periodically updated.

Information on the Uterine Board Content Lost in CSN Outage - CSN lost all the content that had been submitted by site members after October 29, 2018 to January 30, 2019 in a data outage. This link explains the steps that were taken to retrieve as many posts as possible from this time period.

Searching Past Posts

The search function on CSN is not as robust as you might be used to with other systems. Therefore, while you may have some success using the "Search by Title" or "Search by Keyword" on the uterine board page, I've found that using the "advanced" search function found under the "Search CSN Content" link at the upper right hand corner of the webpage usually provides better results, especially if you're searching for a phrase such as "chemo before surgery."

However, this type of search will produce results from all the boards, not just the uterine board. Also, you can't create searches with two or more parameters such as "doxil AND uterine" and expect to get only results that include both "doxil" and "uterine."

Instead you'll get a list of hits that include "doxil" OR "uterine" OR "and." The word "and" is treated just as another word to search for, not as a search limiting condition.

Plus the system doesn't support the use of wildcards like * or ? to substitute for certain letters.

If you'd like to search for your own posts or those made by another member, use the format "[username] Posts" such as cmb Posts in the "Containing the phrase" advanced search box. This search finds many, although typically not all, the posts made by a member.

If you've written a post that you'd like to read again later or link to in response to a later post, CSN recommends that you consider saving the web address of the topic separately so that you'll have it for future reference.

Please note: The results list for any of the searches under the advanced function load VERY slowly and there is a delay as you scroll to each new page. CSN says that the hit list is displaying the results in order of relevance, but this means that older posts will often be displayed before newer posts, which can make it harder to follow a particular topic through time.

When the chronology of posts is important and you're only searching a single keyword, try using the search function on the uterine board's page first since those results are listed in date order.
