Dealing with Leiomyosarcoma [LMS]

I'm dealing with it. I had a hysterectomy for fibroids in February and the pathology report showed two small cancer cells (LMS) in one of the fibroids. Everything else was clean. I go for checkups every three months and scans every six. I had a CT scan shortly after surgery and am going for my six month scan next week.

Needless to say it was a shock and I had a hard time dealing with it at first. My anxiety was heightened after I googled it on the Internet. But after I read a few posts here, I felt better. There are one or two ladies who are also dealing with it.

One of the best coping mechanisms I've found is exercise. I go for a walk on my lunch break and do 30 minutes of aerobics at night. My I-pod is loaded with up-tempo dance songs to get me moving.

The hospital where I had my surgery just started a gynecological cancer support group. The first meeting is tonight; I'm planning to attend. You might see if there is something like that in your area.
