thank you all. right now we need all the encouragement and hope we can get. infohound2 - i'm so sorry for your husband's diagnosis but that sounds like a comprehensive and good plan (in your sig) which appears to have helped a lot. i will bring it up with the med onc we're seeing on friday.
booggee - that's such an encouraging story! my dad's cancer is an aggressive gleason 8 but i'm hoping he can achieve success and be around for a good few more years!
but i really want to involve dr.kwon as i want someone who will treat this as aggressively as it needs to be treated. we are at princess margaret in toronto but today's meeting with the radiation onc made me feel like he was resigned to this just progressing in x amount of time and wasn't bothered about
being aggressive with treatment. i don't know
it just felt like there was no determination or fight
i initially contacted doctor myers but he's no longer taking new patients, apparently.
good to hear dr.kwon is so thorough! and friendly too. hopefully we'll get an appointment soon.
just had a hell of a downer of a day after that radiation onc appointment. i was hoping for at least another 5 years...of course 10 or 20 would be even better but i guess this is just how it goes with cancer. it's so freaking hard to accept though. i want him to be around and see his grandkids (my husband and i are planning on getting pregnant this year!) and i guess i thought if this day came, we'd be at a point where there was more time possible. i still believe it can happen! right?! i can't give up hope.
