Surgery - Marianne

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer. Posted on October 4, 2012 View this journey (7 Experiences)

The surgery-- complete hysterectomy, removal of uterus, ovaries & tubes, cervix & I think a couple of lymph nodes-- I call it a "Hysterectomy Deluxe." I remember when I was coming out of the anesthesia, the nurse asked me some questions, including whether I understood what kind of surgery I just had. That was my answer: Hysterectomy Deluxe. The same question wasked a few more times during my stay in the hospital. Same answer. Might as well have a laugh.
All went as expected, no post-surgery infection or complications. I did take the full 6 weeks or so to recover, but I didn't push it. Pathology showed that the cancer was contained, but because of the nature of the type of cancer, four cycles of chemotherapy were advised to make sure there were no rogue cells lurking.

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