I'm a Ewing's sarcoma cancer patient and facing surgery in early May. My tumor is in my heel. I've had 2 chemo treatments so far and surprisingly enough they weren't as bad as I expected. I have an almost 2 year old and I haven't been able to walk for about 6 months now. My choices for surgery are...try to keep my foot and have several years of recovery with no guarantees of ever walking or lower leg amputation with the possibility of walking within months. I'm pretty sure what my decision will be because I just want to walk. I want to be able to take my daughter to the park and walk her in to her first day of school. Any advice? I have so many questions about living with a prosthesis, recovery and limitations. I really just need to ask someone who's been there. I just don't want to doubt my decision. Thanks

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
