Relationship issues - Itsnobigdeal

Oh No Associated with Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer. Posted on December 25, 2014 View this journey (3 Experiences)

Everybody, including my husband think im making a big deal about being told I have endometrial adenocarcinoma. So it's stage 1. There must be a dozen sub stages from not too bad to very bad. I've been asking my family Dr. For the past 2 years to help me with heavy bleeding and severe pain. He would just give me birth control pills and tell me that my next period would be my last. Finally in Dec. with pain so bad, I went to the ER. In less than a week, I had a D&C and found out I have cancer. CANCER

    It is a big deal and you have a right to feel the way you feel. I had stage 1b and thought it was gone with surgery but now It has come back in my lungs (same cells) so I am fighting it. I wish you the best with your journey

    I was told the first time on Dec. 23 2008. Great way to spend the Holidays. I cried too.

    I would think there was something wrong if you didn't mourn. Sometimes family doesn't want to acknowledge their own fears. Denial is comfortable. Don't let it put more pain and anguish into your life. Stress is a killer. Cancer at any stage is no joke. I was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma, stage 1, in my uterus. Luckily, I had support from family right away and through my chemo. You need support, so I'm glad you've come here. Look for support groups you can join for physical and mental help. God bless you. I'll be praying for you every day.

    I had a similar situation with my Dr and then gynecologist. He did a D & C and still didn't find the cancer so I thought I was ok. Went to another gynecologist and she found it but I was delayed over 2 years in finding the cancer. Really disgusting! Deep down I knew there was something wrong and absolutely should have been more proactive sooner. We are our best advocate. A cancer diagnosis is devastating, shocking and scarey. My husband tried to minimize the cancer in order to keep me calm, he had a hard time accepting it. I hope you find the support you need, there are groups that do help as well. All the best to you!
