has anyone had to have a titanium rod inserted in femor bome after having a liposarcoma removed and radiation therapy? my daughter has been advised to have this procedure done. i have yet to find anyone else that has had this done because the rads made her bone brittle and dr. says she could shatter her leg in several places that would be very hard to repair. with no insurance had to take out a loan for the surgery and wonder if this is this necessary. i know that sounds awful.
