He is doing pretty good right now. We are trying to find out more answers about the surgery & are trying to get a 2nd opinion. Have only talked to the surgeon briefly & he said to remove & replace the sacrum. He & I are very nervous about this & don't want to rush into it without talking to others that may have had the same thing or Dr's that might have more experience with this situation. Lots of praying for a Christmas miracle.

It's a good time for miracles, Amy. 🙂

Learning more about your situation made me think of members @wsh66 and @me67, who I believe had sarcoma in the pelvic area, possibly involving either the sacrum or sciatic nerve or both. You can read more about @me67's experience here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/comment/153585/

I also wonder if proton beam therapy has been discussed as a potential option for your husband. See this Mayo Clinic Q&A interview with Dr. Safia Ahmed, a radiation oncologist at Mayo:
