DX of Leiomyosarcoma

I just returned from my DR appointment at cancer clinic. Good news is don't need radiation or chemo treatment, but because the diagnosis a rarer cancer ( leiomyosarcoma ),I will have to have pelvic exams every 6 months and a chest x-ray annually to monitor possible cancer cells that have 40 % chance of recurring. I pray to God all cancer is gone with my hysterectomy, so life can soon be lived with peace of mind!

You might want to get a second opinion on your surveillance and situation. Sarcomas are different and you need to get info from a doctor with experience in leiomyosarcoma - not just gyn cancers. There is more info on the web including a yahoo chat group that can give you info.
I got a second opinion for my own peace of mind. He did recommend more surveillance than my gyn/onc had suggested. Fortunately still no further treatment. Coming up on my two year aniversary of NED! But if something does show up in the future, I know of some resources who have the experience that will help my chance of beating this cancer!

DX of Leiomyosarcoma

Thanks for the advice, I'll look into the second opinion as my gyno gave me the impression I should be seeing someone else, she's not an oncologist. I did get checked (pelvic exam)out at the cancer center in Toronto, they informed me of what symptoms to be aware of as well. I am making appointments for a 4 month follow-up pelvic exams & I just had a chest x-ray, too.
P.S. Happy 4th of July!
