      I'm planning on surviving stage IV B endometrial cancer. I was diagnosed July 2012, surgery in Aug and completed chemo in January. My oncologists think I'm doing great & have not given me an expiration date.

      I was diagnosed with Stage 3 endometrial cancer in Nov. 2011. I had a total hysterectomy in late Dec and started
      chemo in Jan.2012. I also had 28 external beam radiation treatments and 2 internal brachytherapy treatments.
      It was a a tough year yet I am feeling well and still here to send this message to you.

      I believe that I do relate to how you may be feeling - as do most people on this site.
      I wish you all the best on this journey Try to think positive thoughts.

      I had surgery in March, 2012, and was diagnosed with state III C endometrial cancer, adenocarcinoma type 2. I had 6 chemotherapy treatments with taxol and carboplatin, as well as three brachytherapy (internal radiation) treatments. At the end of September, 2012, I had the mediport removed. When you're on the front end of all of this, the hurdles seem insurmountable. Once you finally pass through on the other side, it's a relief to have it behind you, but you can be proud that you've handled it all. This path is not easy, but you can do it.

      None of us knows exactly how long we will survive, but none of my doctors think there's a problem. I've passed the 1-year mark and am pushing on toward the next one.

      Feel free to ask lots of questions, and if you're worrying about a particular procedure, lots of us have been there and can help.

      Good luck, and you'll make it, too.

      Hi Curly57, I am a 2 year survived of stage 3 uterine cancer and feel great! Cancer was in one of my Fallopian Tubes, I received chemo after surgery plus I went for acupuncture treatments. So, yes. I believe changing my diet and exercising we're a big part of feeling better mentally and physically. Taking charge of what I was able to control helped me trudge through the fog of shock and fear. Best of everything to you and your loved ones! This websight is so cool! Please keep in touch. I'd live to hear how you are doing. Mary Jo

      Hi curly57 - I was diagnosed with endometrial sarcoma, high grade, estimated to be stage III. I was told that this sarcoma is very rare and highly aggressive. But here I am - diagnosed Nov. 201l via pathology report after a total hysterectomy, then chemo & radiation. All of the treatment was finished in July 2012, and I feel great. I'm back to doing everything pre-cancer. I don't think about an expiration date at all. It was a rough year, but I am passed all of that. I am blessed to have my faith, and surrounded by family & friends, so I choose to focus on all the good things going on in my life.
