    Tired of waiting

    1
    i learned of my endometrial cancer by phone while driving on what is billed the busiest highway in the world--the 401 through Toronto. I live in Winnipeg but had driven to Toronto two days after the D&C to support my son through some difficulties, hence the means of being informed. I was allowed to choose where I would have the surgery and chose Toronto, to spend more time with my son. My surgery...

Surgery out of the question currently due to existing PE's and anticoag therapy resulting in repeated vaginal hemorraging. Havent been able to spend a day home without being rushed back to hospital bleeding. Finally, after four targeted radiation treatments last week, was released on...

    Yesterday I received the call that my biopsy that was done last Thursday for only "precautionary" reasons turned out to not be so precautionary. As the doctor listed a very detailed diagnosis, what seemed to absorb within my consciousness was "uterine cancer" and Grade 1. I see the oncologist next Wednesday. I am scared and bounce back and forth between calm and angry. I have discomfort,...

My doctor is trying an alternative treatment where I am to lose weight and get on Megace (man-made progesterone), which is not an easy feat given that Megace is an appetite suppresant. She said that after 6 months, if all is gone, I should try to get...
