Hello, I am new at this and not sure what I am supposed to say. Last March, I was diagnosed with Uterine Cancer and after many treatments and a hysterectomy I was declared clear. Then in May this year, my Oncologist informed me that the Cancer had returned in a more agressive manner. I am waiting to have a PET scan to determine if it is operable or not, if it is, then I will have to have my bladder, bowel and vagina removed, this I am not thrilled about, if not then I have a twelve month life expectancy, I am not thrilled about that either. I am 63 years of age and have a wonderful husband, five children and 10 grandchildren (rangeing in age from 21 years to 2 years). I am not scared of dying, I am more worried about those I will leave behind and I am not making any decisions until I have the PET scan. It just seems vary difficult to talk to people about the Cancer, I don't know how much to tell them. I don't want them to feel any different towards me than they did when I was Cancer free and healthy.
