My mother just turned 65, but was very active. 3 mile walks, and weight training 3 times a week.
She discovered her Lipo Sarcoma in her left calf. She had surgery in January 2003, followed by radiation.
The standard 3 month CT scan found new problems in her hip, a small egg sized bump, and invasion into her lungs.
She has done one round of chemo and into the first treatment of a different drug, due to the first allowing growth and spreading into her Liver.
She is getting feverish every night, but the DR. says her blood work is within normal #'s.
The lump in her hip/upper leg is now red and changed from egg sized to a baseball sized hard painful red mass. Antibiotics have been prescribed, but how much longer do I have to wait for a positive change.
We have a cruise to look forward to in July. I want her to have fun.
