My mother was just diagnosed with stomach cancer. I was told that MD Anderson was the best and I was wondering if anyone had gone there or if anyone could recommend a place for treatment? My mother was not comfortable with our local oncology surgeon that was recommended and he was supposedly the best according to many of the doctors that saw her while she was in the hospital. That leaves me no choice but to look out of town for a facility and I have no idea what that entails at this point because I am still waiting for an appointment for an evaluation. I am so scared that by the time she finally gets seen by MD Anderson her cancer may have spread even further... any suggestions? Please help I can't sleep, eat and I am feeling overwhelmed I hope she will be able to handle everything that comes with the treatments and surgery I am so scared...
