    After my hysterectomy my gyn/onc told me 6 cycles of chemo, but before I started he reduced it to 3. He said there was a study that showed 3 was as good as 6 and had much less toxic effects on the...

    Hope the meeting with the gyn/onc was informative. Retrospectively I cannot think of any questions I would have had that the gyn/onc didn't give me answers about without me even asking.

    It seems quite common to do vaginal hysterectomies for cancer, so presumably the doctors aren't rupturing the bags, but definitely a good question for your gyn/onc.

    I'm sorry your mom has cancer. But endometrial cancer has very good survival rates so it will probably be okay.

    I think you should call the nurse at your surgeon's office and ask about it.

    I hope everything is okay with your mom. I don't know anything about fluid buildup.

    My gyn/onc told me not to call unless I had pain for several weeks in the same place with NO KNOWN CAUSE. So,...

    I don't have any good advice, my cancer symptom was spotting and fluid discharge long after menopause.

    Have you been to an endocrinologist or had any tests for various hormone levels? I forget...

    That time before surgery of not knowing was the most anxious for me. I pretty much assumed I was a goner. But here I am a year later after having high grade (grade 3) endometrial cancer and so far...

    Yay!!! That is good news. I hope the D&C results are the same. But if not, endometrial cancer has very good survival stats.
