My mother was diagnosed with uterine carsinosarcoma - MMMT - we just got the pathology back from the surgery and they said it is stage 3a. The surgeon didn't take any lymph nodes during surgery - she thought it was stage 1c after the surgery. When she talked to us she didn't really explain that the new staging meant that it had spread beyond the utereus. It was found on the surface of both ovaries and the fallopian tube. I wonder now why she didn't take any lymph nodes during surgery. I wonder if this was a mistake. The initial cat scan didn't show any enlarged lymph nodes but now i am really afraid. My mother is taking part in a clinical trial - either will get carbo/taxol or ifosamide/taxol, She had another cat scan on Wed and Idon't think I will be able to sleep until I hear the results. So afraid a mistake was made at surgery by not taking any lymph nodes. Any thoughts?
