Low grade endometrial stromal sarcoma

My sister has recently been found to have low grade endometrial stromal sarcoma. It was found on hysterectomy pathology specimen.  The pathologist has noted that the sarcoma was quite small, and was found inside a fibroid.  There were good margins around the entire tumor, with no evidence of extension.  He feels this was caught very early.  She will be seeing  a gynecologic oncologist next week, as her GYN is recommending a staging procedure, to check the lymph nodes, and remove her remaining ovary and cervix.  
My question is this:  If lymph nodes come back good, and this has been completely and totally resected, will she need further treatment, such as chemo and radiation?  What are the chances of this coming with...with or without chemo/radiation?

Hi There
this is a slow growing tumor of the uterus. If it is confined to the uterus , it should be cured by surgery alone.
I completely agree with the recommendation for further surgery.
if it is discovered that there is involvement in lymph nodes, the standard therapy is progesterone and no estrogen replacement.

This tumor has a very good prognosis
