Unlike other cancers chemotherapy isn't particularly effective on sarcomas and the % improvement on my prognosis isn't great, but marginally good enough. Our aim is to eradicate the cancer from my body and the timing is right to use this treatment to assist with this. How it works is that they use drugs that destroy rapidly dividing cells, such as cancer cells, immunity, hair cells etc. The chemo drugs don't differentiate between the good and bad cells, so as a result side effects. Unlike the surgery and radiotherapy which are localised to the area of the tumour, chemo is systemic and treats and affects the whole body. More info about chemo here.
So based on all the information we have decided to commit to the treatment and my regime starts 10 January. It will involve 6 treatment over 18 weeks. I will be admitted to hospital for 3 days for each of the treatments and after 3 weeks and some recovery we repeat the cycle. The side effect are on the moderate to bad side of the spectrum, compared to other cancer chemo treatments.
