4 hours ago · Chondrosarcoma in Cancer

@kathleenkin– Good morning once again. You have endured quite a bit and I don't blame you for putting off any further surgery until you really have to have it. Have you considered a second opinion? I think that it would be a very good idea, even if you have to travel- that is if you can.

Thank you for asking. Right now I am doing very well. I have 4 but right now they are indolent. But like you, I'm looking over my shoulder all the time for the next one. I am missing my right lower and left upper lobes. I've had 2 surgeries, chemo and radiation (proton and photon).

@logan615– Welcome to Mayo Connect. Your Hemorrhagic ovarian cyst is certainly not flaring up at a convenient time for you. I can not give you medical advice but I can help guide you. I also had an ovarian cyst and was put on hormone therapy. I didn't have any success with that either. And I was older than you. I wound up having my ovaries removed. I would have done anything to have the pain stopped. Does your gynecologist recommend any future treatments?
These links might help.



1 day ago · Chondrosarcoma in Cancer

@kathleenkin– Good morning. Boy that was some tumor that I am sure you are glad to be rid of! My cancer is a sub-group of adenocarcinoma of the lung. It's called Multi-focal adenocarcinoma of the lungs. I'm not familiar with chondrosarcoma other than the fact that it begins in the bones and connective tissue and metastasizes from there. Other than your lung removal what were the other surgeries for? How are you feeling? Are you very short of breath?

@joangma– Joan, please be weary of "cures" or "miracles". There is no cure for cancer but there are plenty of people who will sell you bridges. These people give false hope to those who are the most vulnerable.
