    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Had period that went on for six months, non-stop. Had to wait until March 1st when I had insurance to cover me.

    Hysterectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    First I had a D&C done and it confirmed the cancer. On June 5th I had the total hysterectomy with the daVanci robotics. It's almost four months and I still have the swollen belly. I still feel tired a lot but am gaining strength every day.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Cancer hadn't spread to lymph nodes

    Celebration

    The cancer I had was all removed with my surgery and hadn't spread. I feel so blessed!
