Hi, I'm a 26 year old woman with a husband and 14 month old daughter. I was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in my right tibia on April 16th. I had wide resection surgery on April 28th with an allograft. The doctors tell me they can't figure out what kind of tumor it is so they can't give me chemotherapy (although they assure me the margins during surgery were all negative) Even though the tumor is gone from my tibia there is a chance that it may have metastased prior to surgery (so far the CT scans and etc have been negative). Has anyone else ever just had surgery and no chemo? I'm scared! I feel as thought I need the chemo to save my life.
