Hi !
I went for a 2nd opinion today. Talked to an Onco/surgeon so he has experience doing this type of surgery (psoas muscle masses) Well...I have a smile on my face...He was just talking to me and asked me when I was Dx..I told him 2 1/2 years ago....he told me (like we know) that after 2 years we have a better much better chance of staying clear (liver & lungs). He told me that I should not be that worry about my lymph nodes...that this is probably a recurrance ...and that we could start thinking about looking at this disease as "curable" Weather is true or not...it's great to hear positive thinking from your Dr. your hopes go up and you keep on seeing a light at the end of the tunnel...The surgery is shedule to be in 2 weeks and he said that IT IS a mayor surgery because of the location....but he sound sooooo positive...I just want those babies out...I can deal with the pain..
God bless

That is GREAT news!! Hanging onto Hope is so key to survival. That, and feeling empowered with our choices and decisions.

I was told I was cured last fall after my 5-year tests and the word sounds so sweet! Grab it and hang on!

peace, emily

That is great news!!! I am so glad that you got a second opinion. I think that is so important. Sounds like this doc is determined to help you and believes that you can be cured. What a blessing that you found him. Good luck with the surgery. You will continue to be in my prayers.
