"I was diagnosed in November 2014 after experiencing a bloated stomach and feeling full when eating. Couldn't even manage a sandwich which was unusual for me as I love my food!!
Went to see my GP who examined me and felt a large mass in my pelvic area. Sent straight to A&E where it all went from there. Had a ct scan which showed various tumours in my ovaries, womb and cervix. They operated and found it had spread from my womb to my ovaries, cervix, diaphragm and nodules on the lungs.
Devastated to find out it was stage 4 grade 1 endometrial carcinoma.
Had 6 rounds of carboplatin and taxol with a ct scan halfway through. At the end of treatment had a scan and found out I was in remission which over a year later I still am.
Oncologist put me on a hormone drug called anastrozole to help prevent recurrence as my tumours were oestrogen sensitive.
They seem to be helping at the moment as had another clear scan recently.
Never give up ladies we can fight this. I thought my life was ending but I'm still here. I went back to work a month after chemo ended. No side effects from the chemo at all which I am very grateful about.
Never give up hope xx"
