    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I had a total hysterectomy 4 years ago for a precancerous polyp. There was no cancer in the endometrium or the muscle of the uterus. It was confined to the stalk of the polyp. I've been diagnosised with endometrial cancer which they consider a reoccurrence with a lesion on the vaginal cuff. I am stage 1, grade 2. This is very unusual with my previous diagnosis.

    Side Effects

    I am just starting to get a few side effects; vague nausea, some fatigue and occasional diarrhea.
