    Hi buckeyeshelby :-) I’ve been around for years but definitely not active. I rarely open my what’s next digest however did today. Saw your question and sadly read that Greg has passed and you’re having a recurrence. I tried to see the details as I too am 8 years out from late stage uterine. Following your journey has always given me hope in my own. Sending you all positive wishes for a full remission/recovery. Hugs and prayers ❤️

      Thanks Rosey. I was lucky. My hernia mesh got tangled with fat causing some weird symptoms which landed me in the ER and inpatient. Was in a couple days as 3 depts fought over who was going to do surgery. That happened a couple weeks later. The path report did show some endometrial cancer cells. No appt with my oncologist for several weeks as I had a big abdominal wound and a wound vac. Once the wound vac was off, we did a CT, which was normal. And my cancer marker was only slightly elevated. The good news, he didn't wanna start out with chemo. So I'm on an estrogen blocker instead. My surgical wound is almost healed completely. We'll do a follow up CT in January to make sure nothing has changed. And that is where things stand now. No big recurrence. And nipping things in the bud while everything is small.

      @BuckeyeShelby and @KB2013- I cannot imagine how scary and frustrating it must be to have to undergo things when you live alone. Sometimes we rely on another set of eyes or someone else's judgment- especially when we are not feeling well. We seem to need someone else to confirm we aren't completely losing it and the symptoms and pain we feel are all too real.

      I am glad both of you have been sprung from the hospital and inpatient care.

      Best wishes for continued event free recovery for you both.

      @Pauline- I wasn't requesting or expecting an explanation or an answer. Obviously you know this, but you are under no obligation to answer or explain anything to me. I was merely offering to be a sounding board if you ever need someone to talk to or you would like to discuss anything further or privately off the board. No expectations dear, just an offer (and a sincere one at that).

      I know .It was just a general answer from me.Nothing personal to you personally.I have a bad habit of explaining things on circumstance and not a individual.I guess it's a problem since others take it otherwise.I wish I knew how to say things like you.LOL!
