    You really, really need to

    You really, really need to ask your medical team these questions.  It would be irresponsible for anyone here to give you medical advice.  Best of luck to you.

    Hi LouLou

    So sorry to hear what you are facing. It will be life changing and must be frightening. I agree with AliceB that the answers to those specific questions will come from your medical team. Keep asking questions when you have appointments and take good notes. Or better yet, can someone go with you and take notes? I found it really hard to absorb anything past "it is cancer." Keep us posted - Best to you and take care -
