On the front page of NY Times today the following article link speaks of importance in "qualified" docs for the BEST treatment protocol. It does speak more on ovarian, but see a lot of overlap to any cancer. Basically get to the best doc, and if not sure get a second opinion, as they can open us up to a very long and cancer-free life. Remember, most insurance co's will pay for second opinions if you don't have comfort in your present doc. As well, we have to be proactive and ask the doc about his experience with our type cancer. Mine is uterine, but MMMT type which is very aggressive and not a lot of docs have this experience. Therefore, I had to ask lots of questions prior to finding the GYN/ONCOL with this experience.
