    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    During a routine round of golf, I felt a pain in my pelvic area. Nothing so serious as to stop playing, but decided to see my general practitioner. From there, in about 1 week, I was diagnosis with Stage II / III Endometrial Cancer and had a total Hysterectomy.

    Decision Point

    The hardest decision was what was my next step? 3 Weeks after Surgery and Diagnosis, I was having to choose an Oncologist to work with. I chose the Best Oncologist I could find...Not necessarily the one with the best bed side manner

    Decision Point

    The next step was to determine if I was wanting to try alternative and supplemental treatment options. I found a great Group at KU Medical Center that talked to me about a supplemental treatment plan that required very high doses of Vitamin C via IV. High doses means 75 Grams every 2 days

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have only had one Chemo treat at this point. It didn't have a tremendous impact on my daily living as I was in the middle of tax season and was able to continue to work. I was completely exhausted though. Don't know, but I figure, it gets worse with each and every treatment

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Cancer is shrinking

    Celebration

    CA125 Level was 130 prior to surgery CA 125 Level was 75 right after surgery CA 125 Level was 22 after 2 IV Vitamin C Treatments. This is at a normal level that was reached by only the IV Vitamin C Treatments. As I had received no Chemo yet at this time. Hooray, I am already at / below the Normal level of 30

    Celebration

    Finished my last Chemo treatment July 26th. Had my first CT scan in Aug and received the ALL CLEAR from my Oncologist! What a few good words to hear! No Evidence of any Cancer! Thanks to everyone who encouraged me or said prayers. I appreciate it!
