    Hi
    My husband was diagnosed with this same exact type of tumor on his inner thigh in August. Just finished his 3rd round of chemo in the hospital, 3 more to go, then 5 weeks of radiation. We will be wrapping up with the surgery probably in January.

      I did my radiation first, then surgery, then chemo. I hsven't written that far into my journey yet. He's probably doing the same chemo I did AIM, Adriamycin, Ifosfamide and Mesna. I was at an infusion center that administered this outside the hospital. I was sent home on a portable pump at night with the Adriamycin. Monday-Thursday for 7:30-5:00 at the center, pump at night Monday-Wednesday. Then a Neulasta shot on Friday. Then two weeks off and back again. I was scheduled for 4 rounds but only made it to 3.
      I had 6 blood transfusions and 2 platlet transfusions. They would do blood counts on Friday and send me to the hospital for transfusions. I finally told them to start scheduling them!
      That ended in March. I've had a couple of CT scans and MRI's and so far everything is clean. I have been dealing with brachial plexopathy, have lost all fine motor skills in my right hand. Not fun, but livable. Learning to be a lefty.
      I hope all goes well, tell him to hang in. I'm 6 months out and its all a blur.
