At this time, I need to go back to my roots as a writer. It’s just not practical to call everyone and I don’t have the courage it takes.
Last Thursday, I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. This Endometrial cancer is a Grade 3 cancer. It is an MMMT type of cancer – sometimes called carcinosarcoma. It is rare and aggressive.
What stage it is, we don’t know yet.
I had some spotting and went to the doctor. He sent the order for a same-day biopsy. I went to see an oncologist and he told me about the grade of cancer found in the biopsy. I am having a CT scan tomorrow that should spread more light on what is actually there.
A total hysterectomy with lymph node removal (done by a robot !!) is tentatively planned for August 9, 2017 at Kaiser in South Sacramento. After that, we shall decide whether further treatment is viable or not.
That’s all I know. We are still in shock. Hopefully, we’ll know more after tomorrow.
