Hi, I'm Bindi, recently diagnosed with chondrosarcoma in left thigh. Currently awaiting final results to tell me how bad the cancer is. Doctor has suggested complete hip and femur replacement. This is a primary cancer with no apparent spread but understand can spread very quickly to lungs. Wondering how successful an operation like this can be and what is the quality of life after such an operation. I am 58, fit,healthy and very independant in every other way, extremely worried may become a burden on family.
