Hello everyone (sad update)

I have been away for quite some time, but it has been a rough 6 months.

In my quest to have one more baby, I switched Doctors to a great PhD just out of Med school.
He ran a bunch of tests, and then more tests.
When all the testing was done, it came back that I had endometrial cancer.
I had my tubes, uterus, cervix and a bunch of lymph nodes removed, as well as all my hopes of getting pregnant ever again.
I am cancer free, but still not in a very good place.
Thank you all for all the wonderful support I got here, and I wish you all the best of luck with fulfilling your baby dreams.

I am so sorry that you are going through this. Thankfully, you are cancer free, but at such a huge price. Like Anna said, if you need to vent or anything, let us be your ears. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.

Adding my thoughts and prayers for you as well. I am grateful that they were able to eradicate the cancer and I'm glad that you were able to catch it at a stage where that was possible. Still, I am so incredibly sorry as I know you are heartbroken to find this dream stripped away. In time, if it is what you want, I hope that another door opens and you are able to find another path towards parenthood.

(((((((((HUGS)))))))))) Please know we'd love to hear from you any time.

I'm so sorry that you had to go through all of that, and that you had to put aside your dream of having another baby. Like Missy, I hope that if you want to, later, you will be able to find a different path. You will be in my thoughts.
