Mesonephric Adenocarcinoma of the Cervix

Hi, I was diagnosed with a mesonephric adenocarcinoma (cervix) in august 2009. My surgeon told me it's a very rare type and only 30 other recorded cases worldwide. At the time my prognosis was poor as there was very little known about this particular cancer of the cervix. I had a radical hysterectomy and brachytherapy in October and November 2009. I have just reached 4 year all clear milestone.....yippee.....And the reason I'm posting this is to let anyone else newly diagnosed or a survivor my positive story. Is there anyone else out there who is newly diagnosed or a survivor?

Hi Katy,

it's posts like urs that make me feel so much better. Thank you xxx

im 6 wks post op and healing well but my head has now started playing silly beggars... I've been very philosophical about it all since op and focused on healing but now I've started to really think about the cancer for me personally rather than just a word. It's messes with the mind. So I'm think I'm doing well then I burst into tears periodically!!! Oh dear...

so thank u for posting. How was ur recovery time for you all those years ago? I'm so glad to hear ur a survivor. well done u!!

Did they tell you that you had cervical adenosis before this diagnosis?
