Chondrosarcoma in right thigh spread to the lungs

My dad aged 64 has been diagnosed with de differentiated metastatic Chondrosarcoma in right thigh bone femur. After biopsy it has metastasized to LUNGS size (1.8 cm x 1.4 cm) and FEMORAL INGUINAL LYMPH NODES within 20 days. Three days ago his bone with tumour (femur) fractured and now we are left with two options either rod insertion or amputation. With rod, chemotherapy wont be possible until the muscle heals properly. Along with that he has persistent high BP 165/110 high pulse 118 . On ECHO he has Little percardial effusion + hypokinesia with only 35% EJECTION FRACTION.  We are only left with the option of amputation as the rod insertion will spread it further to other organs . Suggest me what should we do?
