I wonder if anyone can help me. My Dad about four months ago had terrible pain in his shoulder - after many tests they eventually diagnosed spindle cell sarcoma. They also noticed 2 spots on his lungs. Originally they were going to try three rounds of chemo to shrink it and then remove mass and replace shoulder joint, unfortunately the cancer did not respond to the chemo and he ended up having an amputation. Now the nodules on his lungs have become 11 and the prognosis is BAD. He is going to start palliative chemo but wants to know if anyone has gone through this and how long did it give them after the treatment as he wants to think about whether he goes for a couple of months now of some quality of life or if it is worth the chemo if he gets maybe a year.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
