My mother was diagnosed SS on Dec 2011. She has a tumor in her leg, which goes around blood-vessel, bone and nerve. Firstly, she had Doxorubicin and Ifosfamide treatment, after that radiation. The treatment helped for 4 month. However, on November 2012 new tumor appeared next to the old tumor size 7x8x7. We got Votrient for 2 months, however, the doctor stopped, because the tumor continued to grow. After that, we got 3 cycles of high dose of Ifosfamide. However, the tumor continued to grow and after 3 cycles the treatment was canceled. Now we are waiting for the treatment already 3 weeks until the medicine will be approved. Doctor says we have two options.
1. GEMCITABINE and DACARBAZINE combination
2. Yondelis (Trabectedin)
