Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Posted by marciski @marciski, Thu, May 2 1:28pm

Two year ago my Dad was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma on his back. He had surgery with clear margins. It has now come back in his lungs. I am interested in learning from anyone had something similar treatment strategies, survival rates and any other help you may provide. Thank you.

@marciski, prognosis and survival rates are very individual. Your father's situation may differ from that of someone else with the same diagnosis, depending on his health status and other factors. You may be interested in reading some of the stories shared in this discussion, especially those of @saemlerpe @ventibug and @me67, who also have soft tissue sarcoma:

Marci, what treatment options are being offered to your Dad? Is he in palliative care? How is he feeling?
