Hi! I am 66 years old (67 on June 11). I had two referrals on Mon, Jan 8, 2018 – a GYN and a Gastroenterology. I’d had on-going GI issues and a strong feeling something was not right. My GYN Specialist ordered a pelvic ultrasound that was done the same day. The ultrasound showed a thickened endometrium and a D&C /w biopsy was done on Fri, Jan 12. I got a GCS diagnosis on Tues, Jan 16. I’ve chosen Dr. Alpa Nick and TN Oncology in Nashville, TN – I live in Franklin, TN. My PET Scan on Tues, Jan 23 showed no metastasis. My Total Laproscopic Hysterectomy was done Tues, Jan 30. I have an appointment on Tues, Feb 6 to get the Pathology results and discuss our path forward.
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.
