    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): Earlier in 2013, I went in for my annual pap. My Dr. decided to do a biopsy because I was on Tamoxifen and I was having irregular periods. It came back as complex endometrial hyperplasia atypia - which is pre-cancerous. So we scheduled a complete hysterectomy for June 12th. I was really nervous about the procedure, so much more than my lumpectomy for some reason. Everything went very well, minimal pain, went back to work in 2 weeks, and now six weeks out, pretty much completely normal except for lifting and exercise. All the pathology was normal - thank goodness. Hoping this is the end of surgery for me for a long long time!

    Celebration (Finished treatment): Completed radiation treatments a week ago. I was very lucky to go through radiation with little to no side effects. The last two weeks I experienced some fatigue in the early mornings and late evenings, but otherwise felt normal. The radiation side is red and itchy, but other than that, I can't complain! It's great to have that 2 hours (long commute) back in my M-F days!

    Feel great, and it wasn't as bad as I anticipated. Although now it feels like it went by fast, it didn't in the middle of it. The radiation techs were super, so that also made it easier to go every day.
