does anyone know much about metastectomy? I have been reading recent articles that when dealing with a small amount of mets which can be surgically removed successfully, stage IV survival rates increase drastically.
haven't heard it mentioned here and for all I know, I have been reading quackery; my husband is having his first post-surgery scans followed by our visit to the onc post surgery. Four months ago, he showed two mets to the spine. One was dealt with surgically and the other with cyber radiation. Don't know if the scans will show additional mets but if not, my thought was surgically removing the met that was radiated.
am I nuts?
