[QUOTE=gingertea;5147527]Just wanted to check in with you and see how both of you are doing? I found out my uterus is enlarged and I'm scheduled for a vaginal ultrasound. I have not had a period for 5 years. I have not had any bleeding, and I've always been bloated so I don't know if I can claim any other symptoms.[/QUOTE]

Hopefully you will be fine. Bleeding is usually first sign with this form of cancer and you have not had that so may be nothing. I have come through this so far well. It is now six weeks since I had the hysterectomy and unfortunately I am still having spotting but the docs don't seem worried. I feel so well it is hard to do nothing - I should rest more. I had lots of biopsies taken from outside the womb and they all proved negative so it was all contained and removed. So thankfully I have not needed radiation or chemotherapy. I feel as if my life has been given back to me. I did have signs of endometriosis which you may have. Once my womb was taken away this was solved. You may have this and if so they will want to monitor it - the worst bit is all the waiting - returning of biopsies etc. In the UK it can take a while but I cannot really fault my treatment. It was only two months from my first having symptoms to the operation and there is an awful lot of scanning and testing needed before you get to the operation stage. It was however two and a half weeks then before I knew it had not spread. I am now on three monthly monitoring. Very best wishes to you.
