BLKJAK and I have talked and come up with a new plan for this "educated guess" of collecting duct carcinoma. Tomorrow I will be calling the oncologist and the case manager from our insurance company and requesting to have Mayo Clinic covered as "in plan." Then I will be contacting them and asking that they either take their own look at the biopsy sample or do their own biopsy and see if they can come up with a clearer idea of what specific kind of kidney cancer we are dealing with. We are both uncomfortable with the unclear pathology. He is supposed to meet with his local oncologist on Tuesday and start chemo possilby Friday. I would like to continue with the plan whilel waiting for the information, as doing nothing scares me. However, BLKJAK wants to wait until we have the information. So I will be pulling out all of my assertiveness and seeing what I can do and how fast we can get this to happen. Thanks so much to all of you for the support. It means so much to us!
