Biopsy and results
Thu, 11-29-2012 - 1:16am

Last week I had a hysterscopy, fractural D & C and a polypectomy. I got the results today. I have uterine cancer. I have been referred to a gyn oncologist, paperwork was sent over Monday. I actually saw the results yesterday, thanks to medical records online. I was able to freak out at home and process it so when I went in today to meet with the Dr I was clear headed and could ask questions. I will be having a complete hysterectomy, including ovaries. I don't know what stage it is, won't til after surgery, but my gyn seems to think it is contained to my uterus. So now I am waiting to hear from the oncologist office to an appt.

After spending much of last week crying at the thought of cancer, I have a better attitude. I have many nurse friends who tell me I'm going to be fine and I am believing them. I called the oncologist yesterday but have not heard back from them, will be calling again this afternoon.
