I've sent my case over to my cousin in San Diego and he showed it to an oncologist there. He referred us to Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in New York, which has one of the best cancer and soft-tissue sarcoma research centers in the world. The recommended options they gave me there are much different than at the hospital I am being treated at.

I've now been recommended to do induction chemotherapy (most likely ifosfamide + some other chemo drug), then have the base of my tumor removed (guided with an MRI), then another surgery to remove the spots in my lungs, and then continue with chemotherapy in hopes of keeping me in remission.
My problem with being treated in America is that I was told that chemotherapy is given with almost every cancer there because the doctors are paid more with the more chemo they give, even if it isn't effective for the specific type of cancer. Here in Canada, no matter what treatment you're given, doctor's salaries don't change. What do you guys think? Should I go ahead with these new options? Or should I stick with my treatment here? And what's treatment like in America? Thanks in advance, and good luck to all of you.
