    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I had a bad car accident in Sept 2009 and i broke my left pelvis in 3 places. Later on they sent me for a Mri to see how it was healing and founmd the cancer on the right side. WE later found out in Oct 2009 that I had Ewing Sarcoma. My doctor told me my cancer is not usually caught until it the size of a basketball but they caught mine when it was the size of a golf ball. I was also 17 years old at the time and in my senior year os high school.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    They had to remove 3 inches of my pelvic bone. The doctor told us that he had to take more than he expected to take. I was in the Peds ICU for about a week with drains. I had to be fitted for a brace that prevented me from bending my upper leg and i had to wear that brace for about a month or so.

    Went as Expected: Disagree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
