@hrhwilliam Thank you so much for the encouragement. We are in Louisville, Kentucky where health care education and systems reign. I have felt confident so far. My husband's rhinologist/surgeon said the tumor board has 3 doctors experienced in sarcoma treatment. It's funny -- we don't feel threatened by the cancer itself since it is localized and other stats I've seen show favorable outcomes. It's the side effects of treatments and risks of the surgery that have us spooked. I suppose that's normal.

You are correct that the treatments and side effects can have you spooked. The recovery from treatment goes on for months/years sometimes.
Yes you are in a good area for treatment. Some folks have done well with surgery and supportive recovery drugs such as Keytruda but every case is unique. Learn as much as you can about what will transpire. Good healing and God bless you both.
