First, forgive me if I have asked this question before. I am now past addlebrained.
What seems to be the standard protocol? Rads and chemo first or surgery first?
Original onc says teeth pulled, then rads and chemo, then surgery. MDA seemed to lean toward pulling teeth during surgery(strange to me), and then rads and chemo. I know with colon cancer, rads and chemo come first to shrink tumor. Have become rather disillusioned with MDA. Still no callback regading tests to be done or treatment plan since consult ten days ago.So considering just returning to original team.
Hubby still in A-fib and experiencing CHF. Cardio still not concerned. Just said make an appt. to come in, so I did for tomorrow.
Please chime in with your experiences and opinions.
