In other posts out here I have mentioned that I am headed to meet with a Radiation Oncologist at Froedtert Hospital / Medical College of Wisconsin. I am meeting with Dr. Colleen Lawton M.D. who is the Professor of Radiation Oncology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. As a side note while researching Dr. Lawton's background I found that she was recently chosen by her peers as the President-Elect of the American Society for Radiation Oncology, so I liked hearing that! I also found out that her father was actually treated for locally advance prostate cancer as well.
So anyway I have put together a list of questions for this visit on Wednesday - but was looking for help from this wonderful group of folks out on HW. For reference my conditions are listed in my signature line.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
