I hope all is well! I'm here with my mom at the UCSF Medical Center. She had her "take it all out-ectomy" on Monday and is doing really well! We are sitting here discussing with the doctor where we would like her to receive her chemo. Here is the problem- we are from a small town about 2 hours from San Francisco and do not have a whole lot of faith in our local doctors. The reason for our lack of faith is that one doc took a look at her CT scan and totally downplayed her cancer (UPSC)- we dont want that to happen again. The awesome surgeon/doctors here in SF are suggesting we take her somewhere local and that they will be in constant communication but we just arent sure. So- do you think it is worth it to drive my mom 2 hours to get her chemo or do you think that we should just stay local since it would be the same "cocktail" either way?
Appreciate your input!!
