Thank-you. I appreciate your response. I'm still waiting for the results of the biopsy. The hospital Pathology dept. has the results but they can't tell me. The gyno is too busy to call . I just have to wait. THey let me know that this is not a priority. Oh well.
Good luck with your treatment. I hope you feel better.
[QUOTE=wnorm;5128538]Thank-you. We have socialized medicine in Quebec, which means in laymen's terms: you can wait until the cows come home.Some doctors do care, though.I had a colon biopsy today during a visit scheduled for a hemorrhoid banding. I just told the colo-rectal surgeon my reasons and he complied. Otherwise I would have to make another appointment and go through the yucky prep again. I have collagenous colitis and I suspect I may have mastocytic enterocolitis as well. I have a multitude of food allergies and intolerances. Last week I convinced my gastroenterologist to take me off steroids and put me on a medication called Nalcrom. In the U.S. it's called Gastrocrom and is used for the condition and is covered by insurance. In Quebec, it is considered off-label and is not covered. It's a min. of $400/month. If that dosage doesn't work, it will be $800/month.

I just received my biopsy results yesterday. My gyno actually phoned me and asked to come to his office right away. THe report says" well-differentiated endometroid adenocarcinoma of endometrium. He wants me to have this new lind of "robotic surgery". I'm now waiting to hear from Oncology. At the least it will be a hysterectomy. They will stage it. I suppose they'll do that after the results of the surgery. I don't know yet. I'm still digesting the diagnosis. Of course I blame myself for a number of reaons. Should I have been doing more exercise? Shouldn't I have lost 10 pounds... My BMI is 25, so I'm not considered obese. Does anyone know the best site to read up on Uterine Cancer. Anyways, I'll update when I have more info.
How are you feeling? Are you getting any side-effects from the meds?
