I'm new here, been reading a lot of your posts and have found you all to be such a supportive group and full of really good information. I hope that you don't mind a Canadian in your midst, I'm a Canadian, and havent' found a lot of information on Canadian forums to help us.
Heres my story:
My 51 year old sister went in for a routine appendectomy in May 09 - 10 days later we find out its cancer. First appointment with her oncologist we're informed that he can't cure her, that he can only treat her. Wants to send her to a surgeon in Toronto Ontario. So we go, this doctor in TO seems wonderful, runs a bunch of tests and takes 5 weeks to call and tell her that theres nothing they can do for her.
We've been informed that she has mets to her peritaneal cavity and now her Liver but they can't find the point of origin. So I guess she has whats refered to as CUP.
They've not offered her any treatment to date, and frankly we're ticked.
We're currently waiting for a follow-up appointment in Toronto, for a speciallized CAT scan,
I'd like to go back to see this guy with an arsonal of information.
Thanks in advance for listening.
