It was a shock when I entered my multiple symptoms and WrongDiagnosis put endometrial cancer at the top of the list. For three months my family doctor had been treating me for uterine/vaginal infection, despite clear swabs. I had slight discharge, slight smell, and absolutely minimal post-menopausal bleeding - very little really in the way of symptoms - but also quite a high level of fatigue.
WrongDiagnosis made my decision for me. I asked to see a specialist and was quickly diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Thanks to WrongDiagnosis I was already armed with my list of questions about the procedure and prognosis, so I didn't waste that valuable appointment time.
An MRI scan placed the cancer at Stage 1A-1B and I had an abdominal radical hysterectomy (uterus, cervix, tubes and ovaries) a few weeks later. I felt better immediately after the operation. My six-week post-op check has just confirmed that 1B was the maximum stage so there's almost no chance of spread. I now feel in great health, dancing and running again and working out at the gym. Just wish I didn't have to go back to work!
Being able to submit multiple symptoms is, to my mind, the strongest feature of WrongDiagnosis, a site I've used for many years.
Thanks so much to those who maintain this great service - on this occasion, possibly a life-saver.

  • Just read your post. I too had been diagnosed with endometrial cancer stage1B. I just had total abdominal hysterectomy-bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy a month ago. My biopsy from the procedure came back negative from malignant cells, but the doctors insist that i go for chemotherapy. I think this is not necessary because it shows that i dont have malignanacy spreading inside me. You didnt mention chemo, so i assume you werent advised to get one.
