My Daughter is 7 yrs old and was diagnosed on 05/12/06. Osteosarcoma was found on her right lower Tibia and right Illiam. She has finished her first half of chemo and we are now getting ready for surgery. The surgeon we have now says he will remove the entire right Iliam and not replace it with anything. His reason for this is that there could be further complications and that the Iliam bone is not "necessary". He did say that without adding anything after removing the ilium the hip joint would probably migrate up, but this was not a major concern.
