Is it possible to be diagnosed with mental illness for years, but something else was actually wrong?

I was diagnosed about 10 years ago with severe depression, schizoaffective disorder, boarderline personality disorder, ptsd, and anxiety.Theres no doubt I was stressed and possibly struggle with ptsd or possibly boarderline personality disorder but since I had a full hystractomy I feel different).

I had a full hystractomy because of my uterine cancer diagnosis. This occurred several months ago- I feel like a new person (not saying im not depressed at times, but i feel the depression is "normal" that I do feel). I mean i feel better then I have in years. Also about the time of the cancer diagnosis they also said i have thyroid issues. My mother had been insisting for several years that my thyroid was possibly an issue but they kept informing me that it was within normal limits and wasnt a problem.

I have had issues in my life- improper sexual contact with my brother whos 4 years older then me as a young child, alcohol and drug abuse, not maturing as in responsibility and behavior, unhealthy life behavior and experiences, and domestic abuse. I do have issues that have occurred in my life. Yet, the feeling this past 3-4 months is like an awakening, a renew, better then ive ever felt in my entire life!

Have a been misdianosed and now labeled with mental illness because of an error in the medical profession. A label that will now affect the rest of my life. Im 49 years old, so im over half way there. Ive wasted enough of my life because of things i had no control of and because of actions ive done. Yet, did they error and in effect labeled me wrong and the result being the label given to me?

Im just wondering is it posible theres a great error in my diagnosis and the care ive been given????????
