Our team is committed to helping to you live well long after your uterine sarcoma treatment. We are here to support the whole patient – physically, emotionally and spiritually – throughout the cancer journey.

After surgery for uterine sarcoma, our experts will help you through enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS), a nationally recognized recovery method that allows patients to heal faster with less pain. This method, which avoids the use of narcotics, involves a cross-team approach between your nurses and anesthesiologists.

The Miami Cancer Institute Survivorship Program will help you heal and recover from your treatment, as well as show you how to thrive as a cancer survivor. The program provides support groups for you and your loved ones, educational programs and follow-up care resources.

Once you have completed treatment for uterine sarcoma, you will return for regular follow-up visits to check on your recovery and to make sure your cancer has not returned. These check-ups may include physical exams, pelvic exams, imaging tests and discussion about any short- or long-term side effects of treatment.

You also may have questions about sexual health and function after treatment. Our team of rehabilitation specialists and psychosocial therapists will be there to work with you through any concerns you have during and after treatment.

The Ringing of the Bell

A bright silver bell hangs in the lobby of Baptist Health Miami Cancer Institute. At the end of active treatment, you’re invited to ring the bell. This tradition was started by Rear Admiral Irve Le Moyne of the U.S. Navy, who was undergoing radiation for head and neck cancer. He was following a Navy tradition of ringing a bell to signify “when the job was done.” Today, nearly all cancer facilities have a similar bell that patients ring to mark the end of treatment.
