    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was diagnosed with uterine cancer on June 25,2012. It was discovered after testing from a D & C. When I received that call from my Gyno, I was in shock, scared, anxious and so many more emotions all rolled up in one body. I went and saw the gynecologic oncologist the same day. She said the first thing that needed to happen was a complete or total hysterectomy.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemo was fine except that I had an allergic reaction to taxol. My heart starting beating out of my chest and fast. I became bright red (flushing) and shortness of breath and pain in my legs, hips and back. They gave me 125 mg of benadryl and a high dose of Steroids. Evenually the medicine worked and the reaction went away. Safe to say I was extremely scared. Over all my chemo went well.

    Easy to Do: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
