  • stage IIA

  • Staging is not important. Either I or IIA will not make much difference. The treatment will be the same as informed by doctor. Surgery, Chemo, Radiation & Hormone therapy - means tablets to be taken daily for atleast 5 years. One thing is sure your wife is in initial stage and can be cured completely. Take care

  • thanks ...

  • I agree with Kontak... U should get along with the surgery... I m glad both the surgeons have given u the right opinion for treatment.... Which is Surgery.

    Best of luck.
