I was diagnosed in 2003 after having a hysterectomy for presumed fibroids. I was home after surgery before I got the bad news that it was LMS. I had radiation of the pelvis and then one year later a tumor appeared next to my retained cervix. My onc is calling this a persistence rather than a recurrence. I had another surgery to remove the cervix and the tumor. since then I have had chemo therapy with Gemzar and Taxotere. I am told I responded to the chemo but that 50% of those who respond are cured and 50% go on to have a recurrence and do not do well.
