If you have kaposi's sarcoma and are given doxil (liposomal doxorubicin) chemo is amputation still an option?
Sure but. Sure, amputation will still be an option- if nothing works. However, as much as possible, we try to avoid it...That is why we give chemo--like Doxil (liposomal doxorubicin) etc. There are some other chemo can be used if Doxil (liposomal doxorubicin) does not work- for example- paclitaxel, docetaxel, navelbine-- and off course, continue your HIV meds. Discuss further with your oncologist regarding treatment options.
Unlikely. It is highly unlikely to have to perform amputation for kaposi's sarcoma. That being said, every case is unique so ask your oncologist.
