i'm sorry but i don't know anything about your type of cancer. my best advice would be to look things up on acs and write down questions for your doc. i had mastectomy 12/09, they sent one of my tumors out for a test and said i only had a 1% chance of recurrence so no chemo for me just hormone therapy...cancer doesn't always mean chemo especially since it's so bad for you....trust you docs and take lots of deep breaths...it does get easier...wendy

I was diagnosed with a liposarcoma tumor in the upper left thigh in 1997.
I had 2 surgeries to achieve clean margins.
...it did not mets to the lungs
....mine was likely not a real sarcoma, but a "subcutaneous pseudosarcomatous fibromatosis"
....there is NO effective chemo or radiation treatment for a sarcoma

....the following is a link to be best sarcoma site
