Hi once again. This is Dawn. I wanted to update on what was discovered.
The biopsy showed cancerous cells throughout the Uterine wall. They wanted to do surgery as soon as they found out but I asked them to wait until I was able to see my 1st grandson born which was due on Dec. 3rd. They weren't too pleased with my request but gave in. I had intended to travel to Texas to see y daughter Bobbi. Well,That didn't happen for we took a short trip locally at Thanksgiving which was about 3 hours driving ended up with me such extreme cramping that my husband said No Way. Glad he has common sense. :o)
Anyway, I had surgery done on the 13th. I was scared to death! I'm only 43 and though I had desired 1 more child for I remarried last February and we had discussed it... My husband loves my children. ( They are grown though) He got me a kitten. :o) And jokingly said, " Honey, since they're taking all your goody stuff... If you want... You can have a boob job next year. ( I like mine just how they are)
I will have the results back on the 26th for my doctor sent out whatever it was to the lab but he said he got everything! Just being extra cautious for I did fail to mention earlier in my post that I am in remission from CML. Have been for 14 months now.( A type of leukemia- But I look at it like... Hey! Of all leukemia's; If you're going to get it- this is the one that's best treated!) I take Gleevec daily and other than my checkups... Never give that much thought.
Whether of not I have to do radiation is unsure right now. But what IS IMPORTANT IS:
Though My pap was normal. ( which involves just the cervix) I knew my body and my doctor ( though he kept me on edge for what seemed like a lifetime) LISTENED TO ME and step by step- through elimination- found the answers and has been so wonderfully supportive.
He is not placing me on any HRT at this time. I am walking around well and after a week finally got food to stay down. :o) I'm not sure what to expect from all this for I am now in immediate menopause. Things like...
What changes will happen with my body?
Will sex still feel the same? ( I think my husband is worried on that one too)
What does a "hot flash" feel like?
Will I have them?
Why do I have NO appetite?
I have lost 14 pounds since surgery. I went in weighing 115. I now weigh 100lbs which I have been at that weight before. I am 5ft tall. Is it normal to lose like that?
These kind of questions are in my head.
Other than the gas pains from hell which have laid me out twice while shopping at Walmart this week (LOL- I actually had to lay down in aisle 5 and my husband wasn't sure whether to be scared or to laugh) and being more tired than I would like to be- which I'm hoping will go away soon enough for its been less than 2 weeks since surgery... I AM HERE!!!!
