      Hi, Debbie. I was Dx at 73, stage 2 grade C, considered aggressive. Divinci procedure. Only had chemo due to shrunken vagina and dr. said radiation do me more harm than good. I'm still NED a year later. Hair is back. Chemo no walk in the park, left me with severe neuropathy. You can manage this.

      I was grade 1, stage IIIC. I did not have the omentum removed. I had chemo and radiation, and found the radiation more difficult, although most find chemo harder to deal with. It took 6-9 months total to complete treatment, then another year to start to feel normal (except when having dr appts, anxiety comes back strong). I hope your treatment goes well.

      I am stage IIIC1, stage 2. I thought I had fibroids (for 10 years) and was waiting it out, hoping menopause would take care of it. Finally the heavy bleeding was causing so many other problems (anemia, phlebitis, etc) that I finally decided to get a hysterectomy. Well there were no fibroids, and my uterus was a whopping 2.5 lbs and almost entirely Cancer. The ultrasound and the CT Scan I'd had before showed no tumors, so everyone was surprised. The day after my hysterectomy I felt like a new woman, but was upset to learn it had spread to 2 pelvic nodes. I turned down pelvic radiation, did 6 rounds of chemo, and will probably do 3 brachytherapy next month. Chemo has really knocked me down, but now I can work to get back where I was after surgery. I will say, even with the stress of having Cancer, I'm thrilled to never have one of those nasty periods again. They completely dominated my life for years.
      I wish you the best outcome. And you've found the best place to get support. So much wisdom and experience on this site!

      How can it to long to get appointments if you're scheduled? I'm praying that you are still within the time, and that all goes well.

      Until you have surgery and get the report back you will not know stage and grade. Likely Cancer been there for a while and short time will not change. You have time to get things in order. Surgery was the easiest part for me. Had to remember not to lift things. Healed fine. Take a deep breathe.
