My 9 year old daughter was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma in March 2011. She is currently in her 6th week of treatment. Surgery is scheduled for week 11. Her orthopedic oncologist is suggesting the expandable prosthesis. We have not yet had our in-depth meeting to discuss options.
I was hoping to get other's experiences with this surgery and what your outcomes have been. Have you had several hospitalizations? Complications? Limited mobility? Are there other suggestions you may have?
Any information will be greatly appreciated!
