you should mention exact type of malignant bone tumor. as your doctor has already told you that you have got stage 3/4 cancer probably it has metastasized. now chemo is the only option. bone tumor generally needs toxic chemo regime but depending on patient's medical condition dose and drug adjustment can be made. consult your oncologist.
