I had a complete hysterectomy on Sept 13th due to endometrial cancer diagnosis. I was told they got it all and then two weeks later was told the jury was still out because pathologists found papillary mesothelioma on my ovaries. For 3 weeks I thought that I was dying only to find out that the reading was wrong when pathologists at UT/Southwestern took a look at my slides they found the ovaries to be benign. That was wonderful news and now all I have to do is get through the radiation treatments recommended to reduce my odds of the cancer coming back. The question is, because my original surgeon did not sample the pelvic lymph nodes what should be done next other than a CT to help rule out lymph node involvement? Kind Regards, Leona
