Who I am

Inoperable cancer

I saw the surgeon

My son-in-law researched

Why not in Florida?

My pain

Doctors don't know

I saw the surgeon

My primary physician, who is the best thing that ever happened to me, recommended an oncologist and recommended a surgeon. I went to see the Oncologist and I had a very negative kind of a feeling about him. And then we went to the surgeon who handed my husband a grocery list: chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. We should go home. We should think about it and make up our minds, call him and let him know what we decide. How can any surgeon dare tell any patient who knows nothing at all about cancer, who comes to him for help, I should go home and make the decision.
