Frustrating day at doctors office. Has anyone ever have a PA tell you that they don't do surgery to remove tumors because you can not be cured? That is what she told my wife after I asked if surgery is an option. She also told us that long term chemo treatment is only for "curable" cancer patients andthose with uncurable cancer are 3-4 treatments at a time. My wife was so down in the dumps after that visit it took everything I could do to cheer her up. Oh, she also told her she probably won 't be going back to work becausr she will probably be on chemo the rest of her life. She also told us that since there is no cure, she wont ever be diagnosed NED. Because stagefour patients dont have NED. I was pretty upset after that. Is what she said true?
