Hi, I am new, my sister in law is Kelly, I am her advocate Nicki. Kelly had surgery on Sat the 8th of September, she was in the hospital 2 days and came home yesterday she is doing great .We know she has a high grade heterologous tumor, this used to be called MMT now is called carcinomasarcoma . The doctor keeps saying she has a better than 50% survival rate, we do not have pathology from surgery yet, hopefully tomorrow. Her surgeon is gym/onc suggesting 6 doses of chemo 2 drugs ( don't have names yet). The doctor will have results tomorrow but wants us to wait 2 weeks when we come in for follow up, sent him an email this morning with list of questions, asking him to answer as soon as pathology comes in, is this standard procedure?
We are looking at Sloan Kettering in New York (she is in California). Is anyone familiar with Dr. Marlee Hensley at SK? I have not been able to find hospital on the west coast that specializes in CS, any information is welcome.
Bless all of you,
