I am in Northern California (an hour south of Sacramento) and based on my blood work & cat scan (lymp nodes; count doubling, extreme fatigue etc.) my oncologist said I am still watch and wait but treatment probably not "too far in the future". HOWEVER, right now it appears all UC Davis has to offer is standard Chemo. I have looked into a lot of trials etc. and it seems most of them you have to fail chemo first before you qualify.
Is this true? I am youngish 40, have other medical issues and can't really afford to travel too far if at all possible. My insurance no longer will pay for Stanford (but UC my Davis Oncologist worked for Coutre so he does talk to him)
I don't know what "too far in the future" means of course but I want to be prepared...
