I have faced a lot of health challenges over my lifetime.

I've lived to tell the tale, but all of them have taken their toll.

I'm facing another one, and I will live to tell the tale.

But hysterectomy is in my near future. On the bright side, it's not like it will impact my fertility. But my vascular surgeon is already reluctant to deal with me because of past abdominal surgeries, and that not being able to walk or stand for long really really impacts my life.

My gyne told me after a hysteroscope and removal of a polyp, that maybe just that polyp (size of a small pear) was the cause of my bleeding for last year, and a quick look was "good". To call in two weeks and ask his secretary for results, but would probably be good.

I got a letter for a follow up appointment before I could call.

So since I have google, lol, I kinda knew what to expect.

Since I also had google nearly two years ago, I wasn't too freaked.

Uterine, or womb, or endrometical cancer is a slow cancer. It tends to stay distinct, so a hysterectomy in a timely manner usually solves that issue.

I'm probably not a good candidate for laproscropy, due to past medical issues, and this is gonna be miserable.

But I'll live to tell the tale, and get by with a little help from my friends.

Funny how we can come out here and find this a safe place for us. To share all good things and bad. Things that we cant with family or close friends-facebook. It shows how much we really care about each other.
You've done well @Casinomeister - You raised us well :D Gong to start calling you Daddio! :laugh:

Ditto Jazzy. I have had health issues over the past decade to last a lifetime lol. Stoke, kidney cancer, gout, bone spur, elevated blood pressure, diabetes. You name it, I have got it. 2 years ago I had a tumour measuring 7.2cm removed together with my right kidney. I am still alive and kicking though and since my stroke in 2010 I had continued to work though I am finally retiring this December. My pension should be enough for me and my family's needs whereas the government provides me with all the medical coverasge I require.

I hope evetrything goes well for you. I shall be praying for you. Stay tough gal.

I'm so sorry to hear you are facing another health issue.
But you are a strong girl, and we are here for you all the time, we will hold your hand and walk with you when you feel it is too difficult to make one more step forward.
If you need anything, please don't hesitate to ask.

I will pray for you.

Really sorry to hear about this newest attack on your health. Life certainly seems to pick on some of us more than others, it seems. Maybe because we are stronger, better able to take it, who knows?

All your many friends will be praying and thinking of you and hoping this ordeal will go as easily as possible for you. I, myself, will make a toast to you daily for the return of the best of health possible for the woman who got ME to post!!:oops:

I pray it all will go well for you. Even with a good outcome, I know how stressful it can be. My own Mum is battling Breast Cancer right now. She has a good outcome but still, we worry. Just make sure you take some time to pamper yourself (massage etc.) when you are recovered from surgery. I will say a prayer for you Jasime.

Thanks everyone.

Just to clarify, it's not definite I have cancer. The biopsy came back showing what's commonly known as pre-cancerous cells. In around 20 to 30% of cases, they do find cancer during the surgery. Even if I don't have cancer yet, I will if left alone.

I've been referred over to oncology, I should have an appointment and a surgical date soon. Although I will take whatever is available to me, I'm kind of hoping it is after my birthday in June, as I wanted to do something to celebrate turning 60.

I don't know how to tell my daughter. She's having her own issues, and she's an awful worry-wart.

So fingers crossed that you are in the 70 to 80%. You know your daughter best so you know how she will react if you don't tell her versus telling her. I am a worry wart but I am glad my Mum told me right away so I can be there for her and support her through the scary time. I rather know than be left in the dark. This is just my opinion as a daughter.

I know I have to tell her, and I will. I am sorry your mom is going through this battle Osulle. I'm glad she had you to help. Do you live in the same city?

Yes we do and Thanks :) My Mam doesn't like talking about it so I just try and make her laugh. It seems to work.

Boys and girls, just kick my keister if I start feeling sorry for myself.

But in a funny emoji kind of way of course!

But I love the ear. I can be a whiny baby, and I can count that some one will say "buck up buttercup"

Or just hit the like button, not that we like when others are struggling, but it is the best way to show you read it.

I'm dreading telling my best friend too. She's currently in Italy, but when she brought me home from the hysterocope, she told me I wasn't allowed to have cancer. Told her I couldn't promise, but I'd do my dangest not to die from cancer. We knew each other in high school, but we have been close friends for over 30 years now. We have lost a lot of mutual friends, and she knows more people than I do. If you are worried about your health, see someone rather than wait rather than know. Early prognosis is key to increased survival rates.

I hope each and every one of you live long enough to become miserable, lol. One of my highschool close friends, and close friend until she moved out west in my late 20s, is now a facebook friend. She works with elderly people, and the stories she tells about women in their 100s are hilarious.

When I turned 50, I was really ill. I had a CM contest for a new tagline. I had been thinking of doing something similar for 60th, but I think I will just go do that now.

I'm living the dream, cool old lady. Don't you dare tell me I'm not an old lady, I have been waiting since I was four years old to be an old lady. And if you tell me I'm not cool, I've been estrogen free for decades, I don't care what you think.

Jazzy, reading this news saddens me greatly. Sending you my love and my prayers.
I hope you will be receiving (and then bringing us) some good news very soon.
