They may choose aggressive therapy in attempt to have more time with children, study finds

My loved one was diagnoised with Osteosarcoma in December 2011. The tumor is just below the knee. No mets, thank goodness! Unfortunately, they are not going to be able to remove the tumor. She will have to have her leg amputated next week. Then more chemo. They have said that the chance or re-occurance is 0% after the surgery and chemo. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced amputation and had re-occurance?

Hello Rachael...I'm sorry your 'sweetie' has this cancer and is soon to undergo amputation.
I don't know alot about osteosarcoma beside the fact that a sarcoma oncologist/surgeon (specialist in this cancer) is what you want for her. Helps to have an oncolgical med team that is very familiar with 'sarcomas and has a long track record to prove it (with high success rate a big + !)
Certainly there are some 'sarcoma warriors here who can help you out with their experiences...I hope they post this week.
Wishing you all the best for you and 'sweetie'...God bless!
