The catscan came back with no signs of cancer in lungs, liver, lymph nodes.
According to the Radiation Oncologyst I had a high grade or high stage 2 that had traveled from my uterus to my cervix. I may say this wrong a carcino sarcoma. Uterine sarcoma.
They believe that we got it all out by the total hysterectomy.. I still have to do 25 sessions of external radiation and 3 internal, and then get check ups every 3 ? months.
Still scared, but crying less. I can't tell you how my body felt after the news.. I was actually ill the stress was so strong.. My body felt like a wrung out washrag... Now if I could only find a decent tape...grrr 2 inches of the incision opened and we have to patch it up at least twice a day.. lol It sucks to have a hairy belly and be sensative to tape.
Anywho, please please please if something isn't right and your doctor doesn't do anything go somewhere else. Research changes in your body insist on treatment.. If I had stayed with my old Doctor who treated the symptoms instead of finding out why I had them this would have progressed much farther than it did. This wasn't the only ailment in my body she ignored.... I am very angry with her..
Beckabean, you sure have been on my mind... I will have my parents church put you on their cross country prayer list.. I am really keeping my fingers crossed that your results come in as promising as mine have.. They have too!!! I really wish I could reach through this computer and give ya a big hug I know how you are feeling... Like I said you have been on my mind, as I am sure you have been on others here too.. PLease keep in touch, let us know how you are doing....

Thank you for thinking of me even when you are dealing with the stresses of illness too! I'm glad you got some good news, and I'm hopeing I will as well. Ya know what you said about your doctor, is the same reason I've decided to get tested in Florida. It's kind of mind boggleing how the same technology isn't available everywhere. My doctor is the one who told me I wouldn't get the type of treatment here that I would need, if it came down to it. I have an apointment with her tomorrow so she can refer me to an ear nose and throat specialist in Florida. All of my symptoms point to a cold or the flu, but nothing! Lol I'm the only person I know who is praying to get sick. My mom is taking this harder than I am, she's pissed off that she's in her 40's and healthy, and I could be diagnosed with cancer. I try not to talk about it with her, since her best way of dealing is yelling at me that there is nothing wrong. The closer it gets to finding out, the more nervouse I get.
On a lighter note, I got some really GREAT news yesterday. About 6 weeks ago I applied for a job working with troubled kids. Children with behavior problems who have been dumped onto the system. I didn't think I had a long shot for getting the job, but I got a letter in the mail yesterday saying I have been accepted for an interview and the testing! The interview day is three days after I go for the biopsy, so hopefully by then I should know if I'll be able to accept the job or not.
