... but md anderson is one of the best places you can be. When was she daignosed? How old is your fiancee/wife/girlfriend? you say that pathalogy from the lung surgery was confusing how so? All of those factors generally help determine the prognosis and the type of treatments required? did she get any RAI (radioactive iodine) treatment or did she get external beam radiation and/or chemo?

Are they giving you any additional information at MD anderson?
