Hi all. I've just gotten confirmed results from two biopsies that a mass in my pelvic bone is osteosarcoma. I've already spoken with my surgeon who strongly recommends full excision. Chemo and radiation therapy would not do anything at this stage. I never thought that I could get cancer at this stage in my life. I'm only 24 and I live a very active lifestyle. I guess you never know what the world will throw at you. I'm incredibly lucky to have the love and support of my family, partner and friends. I'm just looking for people to talk to who are going through or have gone through the same thing. Thanks and I wish the best for everyone here.
Hi Katherine I had an osteosarcoma removed from my pelvis 27 years ago at that time it took a long time to diagnose it and many biopsies but I meet the most wonderful surgeon who I still today .If you would like to contact me I am happy to speak with or meet as I know I miss having people who understood what I was going throughout.My life has not been the one I thought I would have but I still manage to do many things living with my lovely crutches as my legs,ride my bike,swim,travel,bring up my son.Don’t lose hope there is a lot that they can do today.Cheers Heather.
Hi Heather, I would love to chat or meet up if we're in the same city. I've got my big surgery next Tuesday to remove the osteosarcoma, quite a bit nervous but my family makes me feel a lot better. I would love to hear your story and how you've been doing since the surgery xx Katherine
