My daughter was diagnosed about 4 years ago. She did not have surgery but had chemo and radiation. All seemed well for a while and then she developed a tumor in her upper left arm. They did surgery on it but couldn't get it all because of the nerves. She also had a rod put into her arm so it wouldn't break because the tumor was going into the bone. She has had many different types of chemo and is currently on it. Sorry I don't know the names of the drugs at this time. She was also doing clinical trials for a while but it didn't help. Her arm now has an open wound where the tumor is and is swollen and not very usable for her. She has little movement in the arm. This is very unusual and we just don't know how long this can go on. The arm may never heal or be useful. Appreciate any information or any way to turn for this. It's been such or struggle for her, she's only 47.
