Metastatic Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma (MFH) to Lung

Hi everyone, my dad (62 years old) was diagnosed with Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma (MFH) last April (2018). I wanted to share his situation and see if anyone had any luck with certain chemo treatment, or aware of any new treatmen / development in cases of metastasis in lung? 

April 2018 - Diagnosed with MFH, 15cm tumor in his hip

May 2018 - Found out that his MFH is metastatic, identified 5 cm tumor on his left rib bones (spread through 2-3 ribs). He did 2 session of chemos as we knew that the cancer is metastatic. 

June 2018 - Started heavy ion radiation on his hip as the tumor was way too big and deep to remove. Cured now. 

July 2018 - Started noticed tiny tumors (1-2mm) in his both lungs. Doctor said lets wait for a month or so to see what it is. Too early to say it is tumors. 

August 2018 - Doctor agreed that those were tumors in his both lungs as it was gradually growing. Completed his 3rd Chemo. 

September 2018- Removed the 3 left rib bones to remove the tumors, and also removed tumors from his LEFT lung as much as possible (I think there were about 5-6 tiny tumors).

October 2018 - He did his 4th chemo session. 

November 2018 - Removed tumors in his RIGHT lung as much possible. 

December 2018 - No chemo (took a break). Went to get CT scans, and found out that tiny tumors are starting to appear again on both lungs despite the surguries. 

January 2018 - Did 5th chemo (this time, he changed to Gemzar & Taxotere)

February 2018 - Did 6th chemo

February 26, 2018 - Did another CT scan, the tumors in lungs still appeared to be growing (one of the tumor grew 1cm larger since December). 

At this point, I don't know what he should do anymore. Chemo is not being effective at all. Any thoughts/opinions/suggestions are APPRECIATED!!!

Thank you so much!!
