May 20, 2018 · Diagnosed with sarcoma? Let's share in Cancer

I was diagnosed last year with a radiation induced pleomorphic sarcoma from breast cancer treatment 18 years prior. 2 biopsies and two surgical excisions were done. They removed 2 ribs, stage 2 with no treatment available. Just monitoring my lung with several 4mm and less nodules. Now I’ve been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in the same breast. I’m having bilateral mastectomy tomorrow then chemo in a few weeks. The oncologist is considering adding a drug to the chemo that has been shown to cover the sarcoma but only about 5% effectiveness. I have lots of decisions to make. I’m going to both Kellogg cancer center (with tumor board consult at Mayo) and now my breast surgery is at Northwestern downtown Chicago
