I don't know that I have questions so much as needing the opportunity to vent a bit. Ivillage got me though a crisis in 2000, so here I am once more. Sixteen years after breast cancer diagnosis I am walking the cancer road again. This time it is endometrial (uterine) cancer. I have a radical hysterectomy scheduled for 7:30 am Thursday, March 15. Am I frightened? Am I angry? Am I sad? Am I frustrated? Yes to all those emotions and more. I have two friends who have had this surgery (one in January), and they keep telling me I will be fine. I want to believe them, but my gyn doc said she did not think this was cancer. She was wrong, so my mind goes to the what ifs. I know I will have to accept and cope with whatever surgery reveals. However, that is not always easy to get my mind around right now. Sorry to ramble. Like I said, I am not sure I have questions. I guess I am looking for a safe haven in which to hang out while I weather this latest storm in my life.
