just diagnosed and have some Q's

Posted by frosome on Nov 25, 2014 7:26 pm

I am a 40 yr old male, I currently live in Vernon BC
 
I am a  non smoker for 1&1/2 yrs ;after smoking for 24 yrs,and have skin ulcers problem over the last 5 yrs.
 
I just got diagnosed with high grade pelvic sarcoma tumor, of the pelvic bone, today ;Monday, Nov 24, 2014.. but I found the tumour 1 month ago. docs scanned me 1 yr ago for bad feet circulation, and found it then,.................... but neglected to tell me, or act on this info :(
 
They just set up my surgery date for Dec 11, 2014 in Vancouver.
 
Dr. Clarkson in Vancouver is my oncologist currently.
 
They will be removing a piece of pubic boine in the process.
 
So now I am have some Q's ..........
 
Has anyone had this type of surgery ?
if so...... what type of pelvic bone rebuilder did they use for you ?
 
How is mobility afterwards?
I already walk with 2 arm canes , bc of poor circulation in only 1 foot ( side opposite cancer siite).
 
what foods did u eat during chemo?
 
my chemo will be in Kelowna, or Vernon ..... Does anyone know a good oncologist there?
 
How did chemo make u feel?  
 
What did u eat during chemo to help you with nausia, the metalic taste in ur mouth?
 
and my last Q for now until I come up with more,  sry I am a bit scatter brained right now,  been on liquids for 1 month now bc of tumour closing off my g.i. tract , and voiding nothing solid :(
 
What a flood of emotions........
 
Take good care evryone, and  remember,..........  WE CAN BEAT THIS !!

Hi frosome, how have you been feeling? Have you had any more appointments before your surgery?

Thinking of you,
Nicole
