I am posting for an anti-sarcoma struggler who will get chemotherapy (Ifosfamid + Adriamycin) against his recidivistic tumors: one in thigh (~ 30 mm) and one in abdomen (~ 90 mm) between stomach and pancreas. Originally (2004) he was diagnosed with malignant fibrous histiocytoma, grade 3.
3 cycles are planned in 10 weeks or alternatively 1 cycle and then surgery of the tumor in the abdomen and then (perhaps) 2 further cycles. Due to the ongoing strike here in Germany surgery is not possible right away and chemotherapy was recommended to bridge the time and shrink the tumor. The doctors say, the resection of the tumor in the abdomen has priority.
Did anybody have success with chemotherapy prior to surgery? Thank you all!
