I'm posting on behalf of my mother who was diagnosed with high-grade MFH in her left thigh in May. Since that time she's had 5 weeks worth of radio and then had successful surgery to remove the tumor from her thigh. It was the size of a rugby ball. Right now she's recovering from the surgery (clear margins too!). And we've had some consultations with the chemo doctors, but they've basically said there's no tangible evidence to suggest it helps this kinda of cancer.
It's a really hard time for our family right now and I wear this around my neck like a piano thinking about it 24/7. I've been google at nausea about the cancer, the sarcoma..etc nad now trying to nail down some info on the impact chemo has on 5 year survival rates.
Anyone have any good info they could point me too or any other tips..etc? I feel for everyone here. My heart breaks thinking about it all.
