Ladies, have any of you familiar with the MIDWESTERN MEDICAL CENTER, ZION, ILLINOIS?
I have a 30yo friend in Ohio that has bc. She has a 2yo dd. She just finished the a/c, etc about 3 mos ago and now has discovered that she has mets to the liver. She has been on a regiment of the Xeloda(I believe that this is the right drug) for a little over 2 mos. She would take pills for 14 days, then be off 7 days, and then begin another regiment of the on for 14 off 7. She had a pet scan this past week. The spots on the liver have not shrunk but there is one that is "possibly" (can you believe that a specialist would use that word) a little larger. So, now they are sending her to Midwestern Medical Center. She is to be there on Monday for a full week of testing and possibly treatment.
She is very frightened. I am not familiar with this facility or the work that they do. Any info that you might have that I could share with her would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance...Deb
