I was diagnosed a few wees ago, a complete shock as I was having a hysterectomy and ovary removal as a precaution, as I had some abnormal cells in my womb. During the op they found tumours all over the place. Have since had debulking and staging surgery, which leaves one inoperable tumour attached to my bowel and lots of tiny tumours. The surgeons have talked airily of 'mopping up' with chemo, and imply that they can sort it. However, reading the cancer research website gives the impression that living any length of time with stage 3b cancer is statistically unlikely. I feel confused. Until yesterday, when OH did the research, I felt fairly upbeat, now I'm plunged into despair again.
