Hello, Everyone!
We are waiting for a second opinion from the Mayo Clinic, but it seems that I have a fist-sized spindle cell sarcoma next to (attached to?) my stomach. Anyone else familiar with spindle cell sarcoma?

Sorry, everyone... I guess there are three different cancers that it could be.... I should know later today... My oncologist is leaning towards spindle cell CARCINOMA, not sarcoma... But sarcoma is one of the other possibilities, along with GIST. The waiting is soooooo hard.

I am wondering if you have found out what kind you have. I would like to also know what kind of symptoms you are having that made you have your abdomen checked out. I am waiting for my first surgical oncologist appoint on 8/12 and have several lumps on my legs and severe abdominal pain. I also am feeling nauseas from time to time and have completely lost my appetite. Please let me know if you feel up to it. Thank and I will keep you in my prayers. Good luck to you!
