ENDOMETRIAL CANCER STAGE 1

I am newly diagnosed and am completely NUMB!...I can't believe this!....I had postmenopausal bleeding and had a hysteroscopy and D&C.  The doctor wants to do a hysterectomy with the DaVinci method.  I am frightened to death and having a lot of trouble coping with this.  It is a three hour surgery.   I am a very youthful 75 year old woman who exercises 7 days a week and this has been a very bad year for me with health issues.  I never in my whole lifetime had to deal with anything like this as I have always been pretty healthy.  How do I cope?  I have no support to start with....No family of my own...Some friends passed away young and family what's left of them are not very supportive at all and can't depend on them at all.  I had a coronary dissection (out of the blue...small heart attack it caused) no stents and my cardiologist said you would never know I even had a heart attack because my heart is perfectly normal..no damage...then I had a "benign meningioma which was discovered by an MRI and had Gamma Wave Laser Brain surgery for that which went fine and then several months later my left side of my face went "NUMB"...So ALL of this I have been dealing with and everytime I try to bounce back up I get hit with something else!  This one is the most frightening to me!...I am not only afraid of the "surgery" but the side effects after this.  I am not 20 years old and the thought of having the lower part of my body parts removed really bothers me.  I have always been into holisitic medicine and therapies so this goes against everything I know....I have to strengthen myself physically for this because I want to get through this, but the FEAR is pretty great...Is there anyone else on this forum that feels this way or is going through this at my "age"?

Also, I live in New York Citiy and I cannot find a SUPPORT GROUP in this area.  Hard to believe and very upsetting and frustrating.  I have looked all over the Internet and can find nothing.  Please advise and help!  Thanks!

Your post is a month old, but hopefully you are still monitoring it.  A link to the Inspire Ovarian Cancer forum follows.  It is an active board with women who share experience/concerns/support for other women with OC.  I am sure you can find some help there.
