    Oh No

    I am a 27 year old oncology nurse who was recently diagnosed with chondrosarcoma in my left distal femur (ironic I know). I recently had a successful surgery in which my surgeon was able to obtain clean margins and a donor femur was placed. I'm doing great! My chondrosarcoma luckily is the type in which chemo and radiation are not needed. My oncologist said he has never seen anyone heal as quickly and as well as I have. They are going to watch me very closely for at least the next 10 years even though (knock on wood) he said I only have about a 9% chance of it coming back. I am trying to reach out and connect with anyone who is affected by chondrosarcoma for support. Thank you!
