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

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
