Hope everyone is doing ok. I'm doing ok. I have my first appointment with an oncologist tomorrow. I'm hoping to learn a lot about what the likely "plan of attack" will be. I still don't know for certain that the mass in my liver is cancer. I got a referal to go to the University of Washington to see a surgeon. I'm hoping to also get an oncology referal to go there so that my treatment will be coordinated in one place. It seems strange how you have a surgeon and an oncologist. Who's in charge?
UW has a 25 member team for colorectal cancer and a weekly clinic on liver mets. I'm wondering if the SCCA(Seattle Cancer Care Alliance - a consortium of the UW, Fred Hutch Research Center and Children's Hospital) is considered a "cancer center" as I've seen people reccommend here. Anyone out there been treated at the UW in Seattle?
