Hi all, Im new to this group and newly diagnosed!
Hi Pearly White
welcome to the Online Community, although I am sorry to see you finding us and so sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with endometrial cancer
Any cancer diagnosis brings a lot of stress and confusion but talking with people who are on the same journey can help a lot and will reduce the whirlwind wind that is rushing in your head.
I was diagnosed with womb cancer over five years ago and I can safely say the Womb (uterus) cancer group was my lifeline. I met where women who understood the journey I was on. I could ask about tests, treatments and what to expect during the months ahead and be honest about what I was feeling.
