Talked to the oncologist for the first time.
I pressed the doc on killing the cancer and keeping it away. He said killing it was pretty sure. Said i'm a dream parient because I'm in shape, no other illness, good nutrition, ... But he said this bugger is "level 3", in his words "potent".
So I asked him if low dose chemo and 30 radiation treatments was the only course. He said we could start with high dose strong chemo, weaken the cancer and shrink it as much as possible and then follow with low dose chemo and radiation. Says he thinks I can take it and it will have a better chance of not only killing what I have now, but stopping it from coming back.
What do you guys think?
