surgery on femur bone??

Have you or your family/friend had surgery on a cancerous femur bone?

My father has renal cell carcinoma mets to his femur bone and is going to hear the 'options' this week.. it's localized to just the femur bone, but the cancer also 'ate' away and deteriorated it to the point where there is a hole in the bone.

I was wondering if anyone had experience with this at all??

Re: surgery on femur bone??

Hi, I know this is an older post but was wondering what you ever found out with your father. Ironically, I was checking this board as it is possible my father may have something similar on his femur. We are waiting for expert opinions as local doctors are not for sure if it's cancer or something else. We are hoping for "something else" needless to say.
Hope all is going well with your father and please update.
