Hello, I recently ( a week ago) had surgery where they replaced 75% of my femur to remove the cancer portion. My doctor has told me that the only treatment for my cancer "Dedifferentiated Chondrosarcoma" is to remove it via surgery and that chemo and radio have no effect... Does anybody have experience with this type of cancer? My bone scan and organ scans have all shown to be clear for now and suposedely the tumor was encapsulated in the femur, but I want to give myself every chance possible to hit it while its young...Are there treatments that can be used with sugery to give that extra punch?
