      Hi Beebop. What question do you are? There are several of us here diagnosed w/endometrial or uterine cancer so hopefully at least one of us can help. I was diagosed w/ stage IV in Aug 2012, had hysterectomy and just completed chemo in January. Hope things are good in your world.

      When you say there are no results, do you mean that the cancer is still there w/ no improvement? I was very lucky. I'm stage 4, but my surgeon doesn't know why, as I had grade 1, which is non aggressive and the cells aren't highly mutated. Mine did spread, but it metastsized to my omentum, the layer of fat over the abdominal organs. They removed uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries & omentum. My surgeon, ho is also head of oncology @ my hospital, is convinced he got it all. I did 6 taxol/carboplatin treatments, 1 every 3 wks. I have not yet had my first post chemo scan -- that will be in July. My timeline -- hernia surgery July 2012, when they found the cancer. Hysterectomy August 2012. Chemo from Sept 2013 to Jan 2013. Bec,ause I had no distinct tumors after surgery, no radiation. Hope something in there helps.
