I'm sorry to hear of your Mom's diagnosis. I tried to pronounce the word but gave up so just googled it. It does sound like a rather rare and unusual
Surgery, with as wide a margin of removal as possible, has generally been the most effective and preferred way to attack LMS. If surgical margins
are narrow or not clear of tumor, however, or in some situations where tumor cells were left behind, chemotherapy or radiation has been shown to give
a clear survival benefit. While LMS tends to be resistant to radiation and chemotherapy, each case is different and results can vary
Emphasis mine. I know they often try to surgically remove cancers where possible but I'd never read about one that was resistant to mainstream
treatment. I would not totally discount surgical removal if that is a possibility as I don't think it can be much worse than bombarding the body with
radiation but it depends on all the factors specific to the case.
I wish her much strength and a return to full health as soon as possible. There are many threads here on ATS regarding cancer treatments alternative
and otherwise, diets, etc. The first major thing you can do to help the body is....
Very little or no dairy
No red meat
Organic produce where possible/feasible
Mucho herbs and spices, fruits and veggies but as fruit contains much sugar, much less fruit than veg and do not buy pre-prepared fruit drinks.
I probably forgot one or two but those are the major ones. Cancer needs fuel to grow, don't feed it high octane fuel.
