My youngest brother is 26. He was diagnosed last week with Osteosarcoma. He had what he thought was a shoulder injury 2 years ago, but an exray at the ER said he was fine. He has been dealing with increasing pain until last week, when he finally went back to the Dr. The new exray showed 3 pea-sized spots, and a large silver dollar-sized spot of what the Dr. calle Osteosarcoma. He already has poor health due to a degenerative lung disease, and many other serious health conditions. I would like to know, how serious is this? Would a very weakened person survive chemo? Does the fact that he already has seriously weakend lungs put him at risk for the cancer to spread to his lungs? I have no idea what we are dealing with here, and I would like to know what is going to happen. What can I expect to deal with?
