Thanks all for the kind words and reassurance. As you sll said, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought. I have very early endometrial cancer which is being treated with a hysterectomy and that will be it. She said it will be a surgical cure. All will be good soon enough. I wish you all the very best with your journies. Your kindness has seen me through a tough time xxx

Hi , I know you have had a lot to take in recently but as I am sure you realise we totally understand. I was treated by hysterectomy only and was stage 1a grade 2, its great that that is all the treatment but it is still surgery no matter how its preformed, mine was half and half, half keyhole half abdominal. I wish you well too, if you need any tips about surgery just ask.

Sorry to hear you couldn't be treated hormonally and have to have major surgery. But very pleased to hear that it wasn't the news you thought you'd hear! 

Best of luck with it all!

Hi well that's better news than you anticipated amd good to hear the doctor is confident that a hysterectomy should do the trick. It's major surgery but it's doable. We're very happy to support you through it in any way we can so when you've had chance to think, feel free to ask us any questions. Gentle hugs x
