The second opinion was the same. Wanted my husband to participate in a trial, the chemo trial I heard others write about or the intermittent trial. We choose neither. I read Dr Snuffy Meyers book and liked the intermittent but there would be no guarantee we would get the intermittent. As it is turning out he would not have been a good candidate. Anyone out there with similar circumstances?
