I had my 3 year check up with gyno oncologist and I’ve been having horrible yeast infections for the last year. I’ve mentioned this before to her and also I feel like I have a lump on the right vulva. She basically brushed me off and said I have to loose weight. Has anyone had issues after surgery?
Soft Tissue Cancer
I have uterine cancer and awaiting surgery. Stage 1A. How was surgery? I’m getting hysterectomy.
hi Yes I also had a radical hysterectomy they took everything. I was 1A didn’t need any further treatment. It is definitely harder to recover foe me because I have fibromyalgia. But it wasn’t that bad. Just make sure you try to get up and walk around and don’t focus on fhe discomfort.
was there any bleeding down there after Hysterectomy?
I'm sorry your doctor brushed you off. If you're really concerned, you may want to see a different doctor (primary or regular gyno). I bounced back from my hysterectomy fairly well and haven't had any trouble with that particular area since. Unfortunately, my cancer came back two years later and had metastasized to 2 other spots. I've been doing chemo for the past three years with good results.
I’m glad to hear your doing well 🙏 how did you know it came back ?
Oh my. Yes pls do tell how did you know…
I noticed a swelling near my throat. I honestly thought it was something wrong with my thyroid. Never occurred to me that the cancer was back. I made an appointment with my primary care provider who sent me for an ultrasound. That looked suspicious so I was referred to a surgeon who did a biopsy of the lymph node affected. If it hadn't been for that swelling on my neck, I'm not sure when I would have known. I've still never noticed the tumor in my abdomen.
