…it even harder.

I wish I could help in the other forms of medicines and herbs but I have nothing in that department. I was going to mention the cyberknife too, but again other than the general gist of the treatment I have nothing to add. Anesthesia 5 times on a 13 year old greyhound … damn.

…me.

Although very invasive at first, once an amputation heals up, it isn't bad.  There is also the risk of her not waking up from it. 

They do cyberknife but that requires her going under general anesthesia four times.  She has to go under at least once just to see if she is a candidate.

They also

…right now because we have been afraid to put her under again for a cleaning.  It took days to wake up the last time.  Thinking maybe just ZA.  Cyberknife also requires sedation.

I worry so much...we still don't have a diagnosis.  Trying to stay calm.  

…some time before that. The very first day he lifted his left rear leg,  off to the vet he went as I assumed it was a foxtail. Ff to today.  After cyberknife treatment and 6 carboplatin  cancer  treatments and monthly zoledronate infusions there is no obvious spread.  But osteosarcoma is bad. 95% bad.

…you decide you don’t want to go through amputation again (which I understand) and cyberknife would be too expensive: I would like to throw bisphosphonates
in the mix here. Talkte your vet about it but they may be a way to hold off the pain

…all,

Lurker since September but first time post to weigh in on our experience with stereotactic radiation (sometimes called CyberKnife depending on the facility). Before all that, I want to say how sorry I am that both of your dogs have been diagnosed- it’s just truly unimaginable

I don't know much about cyberknife, I'll ask. We feel under immense pressure to act- only I noticed a slight limp on Wednesday, diagnosed Thursday, and today he's really limping. It

And now Jake.  Just rotten, so rotten.  As Luke suggested,  check into cyberknife.

Unfortunately , you already know the drill with amputation and everything it entails.  As you know, it takes away the pain.  As you also know,

The oncologist said that he did not give me the option for any limb sparing procedures such as cyberknife, or linear accelerator radiation because, even though the bone was not yet broken, the damage was too extensive and the likelihood of it being broken

…if that happens the fracture will never heal and the only option, if still viable, will be to amputate. 

There is also the possibility of choosing cyberknife radiation (in which case you don’t remove the leg) but anesthetic is involved each time and as I understand it treatments are very close timewise

…note.. I read that therapeutic ultrasound can help increase bone mass.  Is this true?  I do monthly zolendronate to build back bone that the cyberknife eliminated.. as well as what the tumor eliminated...  should I be using ultrasound as well?  ( it hasnt been offered,, but I can request it.

… 

I realise that this thread is over a year old, however I'm very interested in finding out if you ever figured out if any centers in Europe offer cyberknife treatment?
