i would go to md anderson - they have a sarcoma center & you can do a consult for a doctor nearer you if you are unable to stay in houston for treatment. i know someone there with another type of sarcoma.

i have lms found out in 8/2009 currently working with tx oncology for chemo treatment which is a similar treatment at this point as "mda". will do a consult there when i have negative "changes".

where was your lms?

Hi Kay,

I urge you join the ACOR LMS online support group list. That is where hundreds of LMS families have received invaluable information on LMS treatments, doctors, clinical trials, research and of course, support. After you join, introduce yourself and others with the same type of LMS will answer your questions.

You can join here: ACOR L-M-Sarcoma
If you have trouble getting on, contact me.

We also have very helpful resources on the Leiomyosarcoma Direct Research Foundation site: http://www.lmsdr.org/support.php
Look specifically at the links on that page, " LMS Information" and "Research Links."

Last, we always recommend getting a consultation or 2nd opinion at a MAJOR SARCOMA CENTER.
There are only a few in the US: http://www.lmsdr.org/centers.php

Sending Hugs,

Sharon Anderson, MSW
