Going for the 2nd opinion in a week. Do not like or trust the doctor I am stuck with here. He is not being honest. So traveling 3 hours to hopefully find out what is really happening. This is actually a 3rd opinion; I got a 2nd and made the mistake of going back to the original doctor for treatment. This is so complicated that I feel completely overwhelmed bu it all. My insurance won't cover the original 2nd opinion folks so I am stuck. The original doc promised that a mega dose of radiation would not fracture my ribs - it did anyway. This is my 5th cancer - I don't cry and do the hysterics, so he thinks I do not understand. Far from it - I am 10 steps ahead and thinking about what to do instead of crying about what I cannot change. I do not know things like my EGRF, even though I have asked. Hopefully I will now. Please pray for a safe journey and successful appointment.
