One of my close relative who is suffering from CHODROSARCOMA of 6th rib ( was declared in the month of september 2009) and accordingly "CYBERKNIFE TREATMENT" was advised and 5 sessions of CYBERKNIFE was completed after fedicuals implanting and after complition of 5 sessions of CYBERKNIFE, 3 sessions of chemo therapy was advised and same was administrated as advised.
again in the month of December 2009 patient had a seizure/convulsion attacks and CT SCAN WAS DONE AND BRAIN TUMOR WAS TRACED.again THREE SESSIONS OF CYBERKNIFE was advised and after completion of the same again chemo was advised. there after patient has a repeated history of seizure/convulsion attacks and no relief in sign. again on 21-01-2010 another CT SCAN WAS DONE and report of scan reads as under:

IMPRESSION: K/C/O
CHODROSARCOMA WITH BRAIN METASTATIS, POST TREATMENT ASCOMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS SCAN DATED 15-12-2009. THE LESION IN THELESFT ARIETAL LOBEAPPEARS NECROTIC ON THE CURRENT SCAN WITH A THICKENHANCING RIM. ITAPPEARS UNCHANGED INSIZE WITH MINIMALINCREASE IN PERILESIONALWHITE MATTER EDEMA.

We are very much concerned since patient is almost crippled and unable to walk. The right leg and hand is not functioning properly. It is requested to guide in this matter and if possible suggest the remedy so that suffering of the patient is reduced.

With warm regards

Dear motiwala2

I am afraid that survival of a sarcoma , unless the tumor is in an extremity that can be amputated, is very, very rare.
The has been no reliable treatment of a sarcoma
