    I do not know if this is surgery related or something else is happening, but in the last few days I have had pains in my stomach and lower intestines. My surgery was in September so I don't think it is related to that unless it is the scar healling. Has anyone else had trouble with pain (and change in bowels)? Most nights it keeps me from sleeping soundly. If fact I can only sleep a few hours at a time, then lay there staring at the ceiling. My next appointment is at the end of December. I do not know whether to call the Dr or not.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Hormone therapy): I am now on a daily dose of Tamoxifin. My first tests in October (a month after beginning treatment) were clear. So I guess it is working. My next appointment is in December.

    Procedure or Surgery (Hysterectomy): I had a full hysterectomy and debulking of the area. Dr. Koon also removed my appendix and the fatty covering over my stomach. He assured me that he had removed all cancer cells that he found.
