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.

    I too have Uterine Cancer Grade 1A at the moment and waiting for my full hysterectomy-robotically on June 7th. I’m taking Megesterol at the moment for treatment til Surgery- I’m 39 with no kids. I was told 5 incisions through abdominal area and reproductive organs coming through vagina. How long were you in hopsital and what was your whole experience like- pls do tell? I’m nervous of course but couldn’t be happier to get that Cancer out of me! How long was healing or when did you start to walk/sit. And like me I’ll be in full menopause after surgery- what we’re your symptoms if you had forced menopause?

      I had a partial hysterectomy when I was 25. I'm now 45 and it's difficult. Lots of emotional ups and downs. Especially when ppl ask about kids

    I hope all has gone well for you so far. I had a hysterectomy in 2016 (age 44) due to endometriosis problems. When they removed my uterus, the fund a tumor inside. I had to have internal radiation (5-7 sessions) after that. I ended up with a recurrence in 2018. A PET scan showed the cancer had metastasized to a lymph node in my neck and a spot in my abdomen. I've been doing chemo since the. For the pat two years I've been on a combo of Keytruda and Lenvima. They've done well at keeping the cancer under control.

    My surgery was June 7- I end up having a partial hysterectomy leaving both my Ovaries. I’m now going into 3mnths recovery- I had stage 1A uterine cancer. It’s been a slow recovery but healing@Wisteria- I hope your doing ok and hope the cancer stays away. It’s nerve wrecking to know we have to watch our backs yearly for reoccurrence
