Sarcoma treatment update

The month of April I've had radiation to the chest mass near my heart everyday for 20 days. The only side effect I've felt is some skin burning and peeling on my back like a bad sunburn. I go for 3 more stereotactic treatments to the other lung mass starting this week. After radiation, we'll concentrate on my abdominal masses. I have an appointment tomorrow to meet with a Sarcoma Surgeon to discuss my options for surgery. Wednesday I meet with my Oncologist to get her opinion and plan from here. I know she has a few different chemo's in mind to try. Since my cancer is systemic and not all of it operable, I know I will have to do chemo, but it's such a "crap shoot". No guarantee it will work but with side effects that wreak havoc on your body. I'm hoping surgery is an option for these new masses. We'll know after tomorrow.
