Newly diagnosed

Hi, I'm Jack

Hi I am Jackie

I was just diagnosed the day after Christmas with Endometrial Cancer. I am still in shock and not sure what to expect. I have my first Oncology appointment on Jan 6th. I am not sure what to expect. I don’t know what stage yet. Any advice?

Hi Jackie.

My name is Jennifer, I was diagnosed in December 2019 with the same cancer. By the 16th of December I had a Hysterectomy. Even though my uterus, cervix and Fallopian tubes are now gone I’m still in SHOCK. I go for my follow up this coming Friday, which is when I’ll get more results and I’ll find out if more treatments are needed. I’m so scared and nervous, you’re not alone.

I’m praying that you got much needed answers at your appointment today. How are you doing?

Jennifer

Hi Jennifer

Thank you so much for responding to my post! Your surgery was 4 days before my first OB/GYN surgery on the December 19th to remove my ovary, fallopian tube, and mass which turned out to be benign, but the polyps in my uterus were not.

How are you doing? How did your appointment go on Friday? How are you holding up?

You are in my prayers

Jackie

Your are in my prayers

Hi ladies. I am so scared about this surgery! I was wanting to talk to people going thru the same situation. I was diagnosed 12/27 and I have my surgery on 2/5. They are doing a complete hysterectomy. I was doing so much research to figure out what causes this. (Uterine adenocarcinoma) no answers!!!!

I had laparoscopic complete hysterectomy in December 2019 for uterine adenocarcinoma.

The surgery, in my opinion, on a scale of 1 to 10 as far as pain and recovery was a 2. I walked around the day after and started walking outside for exercise a few days later. I experienced stiffness and discomfort while sleeping. I took only Aleve every 12 hours and only for s few days. But NO lifting of anything heavier than a gallon of milk.
I hope this helps your fear.
I had four childbirths, much more painful comparatively.

I agree, there is not enough information for me as to how I got this cancer and why. I am 57 and healthy.
