    Hello, Thanks for sharing. I, too, was just diagnosed and will see an oncologist next week. Of course, I'm scared to death. My anxiety is beyond what I expected and just am terrified of what's to come. I'm not even sure what stage it is. I do know I have to have the same hysterectomy you had. That's what caught my attention. Just knowing you had it and that you have what I have, just made me smile after falling apart. So just thank you for being in this world. Just your existence is comforting.

    Hi fellow Ohioan. I'm in Columbus. Welcome to What Next. You'll find there are lots of great people here. If you have questions, just click on the question tab and ask away. Or vent. Or share. Or yell. Whatever you need. I was diagnosed with stage IV endometrial cancer in Aug 2012. Today I am cancer free. I hope you get to hear the same thing soon. Wishing you all the best.
