Hello. I live in NY. My partner was diagnosed with a high grade sarcoma in his right thigh which was removed 'en mass'. The tumor was about 4cm long within a capsule. He had no symptoms and this tumor was detected because of an MRI due to an auto accident. The tumor was removed by a neurosurgeon. The medical oncologist would have preferred chemo first to shrink the tumor, followed by a wide-excisional surgery, then chemo and radiation low dose). However he is comfortable with the neurosurgeons competency. No metasatsis on complete body scan. The chemo is six months (ifosfamide, mesna, cisplatin and Adriamycin) Its rough right now. On this third cycle. Anyone undergone this regimen?
