I was diagnosed April, 2017 with uterine cancer – carcinosarcoma. I had a total hysterectomy at the end of April. The biopsy showed that we had caught the tumor early and was contained in the uterus – nothing was found any where else. I was diagnosed at 1A level of cancer. Although we caught the tumor early, my readings online at that point said that chemotherapy was a necessity with this type of cancer. From May until September I received chemo treatments every three weeks. I had a scan at the end of September. I am currently cancer free. I go every two months for checkups and have scans every three months. I understand from what I have read that this cancer is very aggressive and likely to come back even though we caught it at an early stage.
I discovered this site in December. It has been a blessing to me. Finding a group of people who are dealing with the same cancer has been an encouragement to me. I read each story and learn from what you post. Thank you each for posting and for your perseverance, Diane, in founding this site to help others.
I am located in Jackson, MS.
Thank you both for your words of encouragement! I continue to do well! I continue to monitor this website, too, to try to encourage others! It helped me so much to know there are others walking on this road with me.
The GCS Project is dedicated to finding a cure for Gynecological Carcinosarcoma (aka MMMT), providing current scientifically valid information, and offering a place for the community impacted by this cancer to share stories and hope.
