    Endometrial Cancer Stage 2

    Hi All,

    Recently diagnosed in September with stage 2 endometrial cancer. The tumor was apparently large and had moved into the cervix though had not gone through the uterine wall though very close. Fallopian tubes and ovaries were clear. Had a complete hysterectomy in October that confirmed staging. I am to see the Oncologist next week to plan the radiation treatments. Would really like to hear what to expect and if treatment in the US is different than here in Canada.

    Surgery went well. Recovering quickly and feeling good. Having some troubles sleeping and night as the mind goes but doing lots of praying and some meditation that helps. Just so many questions.

    Has anyone heard about Hyperthermia treatments to go along side radiation treatments?

    Welcome Marnie!

    Sorry you had to look us up but glad you found us. Always glad to welcome another Canadian to the board.

    Good to hear surgery went well. Mind your lifting restrictions! I didn't and paid for it so ya don't do that LOL.

    Sleeping troubles are likely related to the hysterectomy. It is very common after surgery. Hopefully that straightens out soon for you as of course rest helps with recovery.

    I myself have not had experience/heard of hyperthermia treatments sorry.

    Here to answer any questions the best we can so fire away. This area can be a little quiet so check back often for replies ok.

    All the best and keep up the good recovery. Also sent you a private message,

    Right there with you Marnie, stage 2 Serous Endometrial Carvinoma diagnosed Oct 10.. hysterectomy Oct 30.. starting Chemo Nov 29. I was just reading about hyperthermia tx, interesting, going to research more. Prayers for you. This has been a roller coaster for me, things happen so fast, but my original dx was not good so the doctor is now saying curable and I have to believe this! Chemo scary because I donít know how Iíll be affected. Planning as well as I can.

    Hi Marniemoo, I am glad your surgery went well. Did you have keyhole or abdominal surgery, as I have been diagnosed with Grade 1 endometrial cancer today and waiting for staging via MRI, but the consultant is not sure whether she will do keyhole or abdominal surgery. Take good care of yourself.
