    Amy, will be praying for you!!

    Joella, I would be crazy on 320 2x a day...you're tough. My doctor will only let me get to 160 a day. I wish you luck in November
    Married my best friend 12/10/11 :
    Hysterscopy with D&C 5/4/12
    Diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer 5/14/12
    160 mg/day of Megace (Progesterone) to see if we can stop the cancer and protect fertility
    D&C, and suspicious freckle removal 10/11/12
    10/19/12 All benign
    12/18/12- Megace decreased from 160 mg to 80
    2/7/13 Benign biopsy
    5/23/13-Benign office biopsy results!
    11/2013 Biopsy - Benign, Megace dose dropped down to 40/day
    1/2014 - My Doctors at OSU thought it would be beneficial to do another D&C to test a larger sample and the results were benign as well. The doctor suggested that I try weaning myself off of the megace in June. I have another biopsy in August, and if that goes well we can start trying for a baby!!!

    I called my oncologist today because my biopsy was September 21, 2012; I have both Mirena and Megace 160 and it is working!!! I am 185 pounds now, I lost 25 pounds from last November 23 when I found out I was sick. Diet - i eat mostly salads, meat once a week, no soy and i exercise every day. Drug is making me sick and i am also taking Metformin. Guys, don't lose hope, lets fight, lets serve example for others after us. It works, I was on mirena for 6 months, it stopped working, then my doctor added megace for 3 months, total 9 months and it is working. I am afraid to believe in miracle but IT IS WORKING!!! I just want to have a child - I am 35, no prior children and then they can cut anything they want!!! Please guys keep me in your prayers and you are all in my prayers as well, for we are fighting for the same - to live and to have children!!!!

    So happy it's working!!!! How exciting....and you are just kicking butt with losing weight!!! I love hearing good news! I'm almost tempted to ask my doc about mirena...seems like it's really making a difference in some women when it's used in combination with Megace.

    My D&C is October11th and I'm a little nervous. I've had some cramping and a very very mild pain...but any pain worries someone with cancer ( .2 on a scale to 10) and the doctor did not seem worried....and the pain goes away with exercise? Odd...anyhoo, the doctor was more excited about my weight loss....84 pounds since May (diagnosis)....hopefully between the megace and weight loss, something positive will happen. I wish I was 185 pounds right now, but it will probably be three months before I can get there.

    Ladies, just got a call today with the results from my D&C, it's working! What a great day, got on the scale and saw I'm 90 pounds down tooEveryone always says the first 3 months are the most worrysome because it has a 50% chance of working, or 50% of staying the same status or spreading. It's like we have been holding our breath the last three months. Next week is the post op appointment. The next three months I'm going to hit the gym harder and continue to concentrate on diet, and I'm thinking of trying acupuncture and yoga for the stress this time.
    Going for a walk tonight with my Mom, and then having a drink and dinner tonight to celebrate with my loved ones. This therapy might not always work in the future, but it has given us so much hope today

    I am very happy for you! We are in same boat, how long you will be taking megace before trying for a child, very important question now for you to ask fertility specialist and oncologist.
