Sinopse

This is a true story as told to me by my patient. She has asked me to write her story.She has been my patient for the past 38 years seeing me since I first started my clinic.She brings her mother and her children to see me for minor coughs and colds.Of course as she aged, she also sees me for minor aches and pains.Once a year she would go foe an annual blood test which invariably showed nothing significant in her blood except for a slightly raised blood cholesterol.Every year she also goes for her annual Pap’s smear and uterus ultrasound without problem.There was insignificant enlargement of the womb due to a fibroid formation.She has a history of a father who died of nose cancer and a mother who died of cancer of the colon.Her younger sister also has cancer of the cervix followed by cancer of the uterus.With all these history of cancer, there may be a familial risk of cancer.6 months after her last gynecological checkup, she suddenly had small amount of bleeding from the vagina. She immediately saw me and I advised her to see her gynecologist for a review.She immediately made an appointment to see her gynecologist the next day.The result of the examination was the presence of endometrial polyps in the wall of the uterus. The gynecologist wanted to refer her to a gynecologist oncologist.She asked my opinion about this. Instead I referred her to a husband and wife gynecologist team who had operated on her sister previously.The appointment was the next day in the morning. The gynecologist did an ultrasound which was suggestive of uterine cancer and confirmed it by removing some tissue from the uterine wall for examination.The results came back in the afternoon with confirmation of Stage 2 cancer of the uterusShe was immediately admitted to the hospital for urgent operation the next day.The rest of the story will be told in her own words.Chapter 1 IntroductionChapter 2 Sudden Menstrual BleedingChapter 3 SurgeryChapter 4 RadiationChapter 5 Medical ReviewEpilogue
