    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    AFTER HAVING SPOTTING FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS,,,AND HAVING REGULAR PAP SMEARS .( THINKING THAT WOULD SHOW ANY ABNORMALITIES), ...I FINALLY TOLD MY FAMILY DR THAT I NEEDED TO GET A SPECIALIST TO DIAGNOSE MY CONDITION. I WENT FOR A D&C...AND ON MY SON'S BIRTHDAY, I WAS TOLD THAT I HAD STAGE 4 ENDOMETRIAL CANCER

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I'VE HAD 3 ROUNDS OF CHEMO SO FAR.. THE FIRST SET WAS WITH A DR IN TRAVERSE CITY....I HAD 4 OUT OF 6 TREATMENTS AND SPENT UP TO 8 DAYS IN THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE MY COUNTS ALL DROPPED SO FAR..I ALMOST DIED AND DECIDED NOT TO HAVE THE LAST 2 TREATMENTS... THE LAST 2 ROUNDS , I HAD WITH MY CURRENT DR IN ANN ARBOR....HE IS VERY UNDERSTANDING.. SITS THERE AND ANSWERS ALL QUESTIONS...THE CHEMO HE GIVES ME WAS MUCH EASIER ON MY SYSTEM.. RIGHT NOW HE HAS ME ON A PILL THAT IS SHOWN TO SLOW DOWN THE CANCER OR EVEN ELIMINATE IT... WE ARE HOPING IT DOES GOOD....TIME WILL TELL

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