Following chemoradiotherapy, the corpus of the 11th thoracic vertebra was excised, and an implant was placed.

Hysterectomy, lower anterior resection of the sigmoid colon, and removal of 8 cm of jejunum were performed. After 4 months, masses in the left abdominal wall, left axilla, and nearby pancreas were detected. Pathology was low-grade myxoid liposarcoma.
