So I have recently had a total hysterectomy due to Uterine cancer. I am only 34 and this is usually not a cancer found in those my age. I know there is a connection between obesity and uterine cancer and I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this? It was about 18 months after surgery that I was diagnosed, and 250 lbs lighter. Just trying to find out if I'm the only one,

Hi Katie--

I recently found out I have a "navel-orange" sized fibroid/mass on my uterus, and I will have another vaginal ultrasound on Friday to look at growth (after 1 month). My gyn. is concerned about it. I plan to see a gynecologic oncologist ASAP to get it biopsied. What were your symptoms? I have abnormal bleeding (despite the Mirena), bloating, digestive pain, and low back pain. I will be 41 on the 26th of this month.

Feel free to message me or reply here. I hope we can offer support to one another. Wondering if there are connections between WLS and cancer, or if it is just the risk factor of obesity.

Best,

Amy

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
