1. need to know the histopathology because if it was dedifferentiated then cave treated as relapsed OGS 2. or if this is mesenchymal then can be treated as relapsed Ewing's Sarcoma 3. If neither dedifferentiated nor mesenchymal then options are Palliative care or Cyclophosphamide and sirolimus with marginal benefit

Very unfortunate. I'd discuss with the family regarding the prognosis... and initiate morphine.

Thank you every one but what sort of palliative care should I offer apart for analgesics.

best supportive care and analgesia alone. had the disease been more distal, we could have considered hindquarter amputation
