Family, I have finished my first line treatment (which is considered successful even with some "activity" still, and decided to get a 2nd opinion for kicks.....

My thoughts are as suspected.....when you ask more than one person a question, you will get more than one reply, and of course they are different replys that just add to the confusion !!!!!

2nd opinion Onc still wants to run some things by the tumor board...so we will see!!

All is well..
thanx

Hi Dave,

A second opinion might have saved my sister's life. She has AA3 (brain cancer) and her first doc told her all tumors were inoperable. She went for a second opinion at MD Anderson and they told her they could remove the largest tumor. The surgery was successful. My sister then went thru chemo and rad, and w/in a year there is no visible cancer. As we all know this monster can return, but for the time being she is enjoying a treatment-free life.

Good luck to you and kudos for the second opinion!!

Pam
