I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer this spring..I had noticed some  "spotting' and  when you have been in menopause..for 1  1/2  years.something  is  not quite right.I received a complete  check up from my primary physician.Dr.Mario Tagliagambe .. he  then referred  me to a  female  gynecologist ..Dr.Myra  Mabry..in Saranac Lake.She  performed a pap smear...and  also scheduled an ultrasound and  a  procedure to remove a  piece of the  uterine  lining to be used as a biopsy specimen. I got a call back two days  later..I went  to her  office  where  she  told  me that  I had cancer...Not  the  best news,but we were all pretty sure  that we had caught it early.  One  thing about endometrial cancer is that it  is  one of the earliest to be detected in women.So My gynecologist  referred me to  a  gynecologist/oncologist for the  surgery to have a complete hysterectomy..as I was past child  bearing age..it  made the  most sense.I did do research and  while  going to the  referral which was  at St.Peters' in Albany , NY, Dr.Joyce Barlin...I  also contacted Dr.Gilbert Lederman who was recommended to me by friends.After  performing blood work and a PET scan it was decided that I would have the  surgery ..While  the  surgery was  mostly a  success..thay had found that the  cancer had gone  part way through the uterine  wall.. requiring more extensive  radiation..which is why I am spending over a month in New York City ,I had contacted the  American Cancer Society  to see if they had any resonable  lodgings  available.but being  in the  summer  they were all booked up...and  cancer is  not  something you can put away for a more  expedient  time.I have been out  of work for 2 months  now.I have recieved a few disability checks  ..while  they will help pay basic  bills  like  phone, power etc..not  anywheres   close to the  hotel.I would definitly like  to pay the  lodgings soon as  possible. my last treatment  is September  8th..
