Misdiagnosed - Kali

Oh No Associated with Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer. Posted on September 8, 2012 View this journey (8 Experiences)

I menstruated, without stopping, for over two years. During this time I went to the doctor six different times specifically for this problem. I was told over and over that I was just "peri-menopausal" and to quit worrying myself sick! I knew better, but was reared to never question your doctor. During the final visit I made to that doctor I got angry. I finally told him "I am sick. You are my doctor and it's your job to find out what is wrong with me." He decided to send me to a specialist, who found out within 48 hours that I had stage 3 endometrial cancer.

The lesson I took away from this is to ALWAYS trust my inner voice. If you don't get the answers you believe get another opinion.

I was frightened when I was diagnosed, but only for about 30 seconds. Once that 30 seconds passed a wave of peace and calm washed over me that was SO overwhelmingly powerful that I KNEW right then and there that I would be okay. I also knew that this was going to be a positive experience for which I would be thankful one day.

I was absolutely right. I've VERY thankful for the experience.
