Have pleomorphic liposarcoma. Radical resection done, and "showed" no remaining cancer. CT "showed" no cancer in chest, abdoman, pelvic area. Doing 7wks of radiation. Family doctor wants me to do chemo, surgeon and radioloigy oncologist say it doesn't work. University of Michigan sarcoma center says my decision, would improve chances by 0 to 12%, but I could tolerate the chemo "well" because I am otherwise healthy (for 64yrs old). Has anyone had any good results with chemo for this type of cancer? If so,did you have chemo or radiation first?
