      Thank you all. Your answers are helpful. The diversity in the answers reminds me about how different each patient/doctor/treatment situation can be. BuckeyeShelby your comment reminded me that I need to be a strong advocate for myself. I think I will do the following: 1. Ask my primary care physician for her feedback--I am seeing her today for something else. 2. Discuss with my oncol/gynecol when I see her on the 13th. 3. Schedule an appointment with a different medical oncologist asap. It is okay that I didn't like the one I was reassigned to when mine retired and it is okay for me to ask to see someone else. I will also insist that the CA 125 blood work be done. Again, thank you all for helping me organize my thoughts.

      I was NED with surgery only, no other treatment, but have never been to the oncologist after initial surgery follow up. Saw my regular GYN 6 months out then annually since.

      Jcunningham, here's a link to all the info you asked about, per the American Cancer Society. One reason you've gotten varied answers is that it depends on the stage of your endometrial cancer.

    Celebration (Anniversary): Two years ago today I got a call from the emergency room doctor that I had seen a few days prior. It went something like this, "So sorry to have to do this to you right before Christmas but you have cancer". Adding cancer to the business of life certainly made the last two years extra challenging. But I am still her living life and that is what matters. Last night we had a small holiday celebration with neighbors from four houses on our street. A cancer survivor lives in three of the four houses. We toasted kicking cancer's XXX and the joy of good friends.
