I went to Duke for my second opinion today (1st came from UNC). The differnces:
Duke is not ready to stage it. UNC said stage one.
While I like doctors at both (except for the surgeons), I have decided to be treated at Duke. Duke seems more thorough to me because of the PETScan.
The radiation oncologist at UNC said I was state one and "completely curable." Duke is not ready to say that. All those feelings of fear came rushing back, and I'm struggling right now.
Does anyone have any thoughts about the differences in the opinions?
Thank you everyone.
