I was diagnosed with Grade 1 Endometrioid adenocarcinoma in February 2022, following an Endometrial Biopsy & Transvaginal Ultrasound. I was referred to a Gynaecological Oncologist and 2 months later had a Radical Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy on April 11, 2022. Pathology report came back labeling it as Stage 2-Endometrioid Adenocarcinoma, Grade 2, with Endocervical Stromal Involvement. Now, I'm told I need Radiation Therapy post-Surgery, and referred to a Radiation Oncologist. He says I need 25 External Radiation Treatments and 3 Brachytherapy Sessions to cure my Uterine Cancer. I am to start External Radiation Therapy June 8th and finish by July 13. Towards the end of the External Radiation, they will do another CT Scan and prepare for the 3 Internal Radiation Therapy Sessions. I'm anticipating radiation to completely be done by the end of July 2022. Then, I will follow up with my Gynaecological Oncologist everything 3 months for a period of time, the a little less often and go through the 5 year mark.
