I saw an orthopaedic doctor following a MRI scan. He thought it was a chondrosarcoma originating in the left ilium pelvic wing and set up core biopsy and PET scans to find out what it was.His treatment plan was to cut it out, taking out the left ilium crest along with the tumor. I asked about how disabled I would be after the surgery and said I would be almost not disabled at all and could walk and mumbling quickly about "with calipers". And when I asked for more info he got angry and said it would kill me otherwise. I am needing more information and wondering if there is anyone who has had a similar operation and what the consequences were.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
