Thank you for posting your story. My Daisy has a Chondrosarcoma in her left hip. It does not appear to involve bone, but the oncologist conferred with the surgeon and he is recommending part of her pelvis be removed along with the entire hind leg. I am very concerned about the removal of the pelvis. Please share your experience with this aspect of Scout's post-operative recovery.

Oh I'm so glad you found this Daisy & co, I was just going to share it with you. Please search for "hemipelvectomy" throughout the site and you'll see lots of other examples of dogs doing great after having one.
