Just beginning this journey
I am 26 years old, 26 weeks pregnant, and was just diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma a couple weeks ago. They discovered a very large tumor in my abdomen that was about 18cm by 15cm. I had a laparoscopic surgery to drain it and relieve some of the pressure I was experiencing. They ended up removing half of it and when pathology came back I was referred out to the Oklahoma Cancer Institute. This has all been very scary for me in general but even more so since I am pregnant. I am meeting with my oncologist this Wednesday to see what stage I am in and what treatment options are available for me. I would love to hear from anyone who has had Leiomyosarcoma. There is not much known about this cancer because it so rare. Any information or uplifting stories would be amazing.
Hello there.sorry this is happening to you at such an early age and being pregnant also. I am new hear as well. I was just diagnosed on 2/14/19
with Ductal/ Metaplastic Carcinoma. I have had a lumpectomy on 2/27/19 and waiting on a Oconotype DX test to see what the likelihood of the cancer returning without chemo. All I can do is stay positive and pray for good news. I will add you to my prayer list stay encouraged and learn as much as possible. Take care.
