Had a hemipelvectomy about 1 1/2 years ago. Just wondering if there are any other members out there that have gone through this and what their outcomes were.

Hi @SteveO
Welcome to Connect. We don’t currently have another member in the group who is writing about hemipelvectomy, but have you seen this patient story that @jstreed posted a while back?
https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/golf-after-hemipelvectomy-mayo-clinic/ Bob had a hemipelvectomy as treatment for sarcoma. Seven years after the diagnosis and surgery, he’s not only healthy, but he’s also playing golf.

Do you wear a prosthetic? Was it (is it) hard to find a good prosthetist?
