I was stage 2b and have recurred after 13 months on my liver - two small spots, one on the dome and one on the side. I asked my onc about surgery but he said no evidence etc, that chemo was any worse and wants to do carbo/caeylx. Recent evidence, however, suggests that surgery does, in fact, result in a better outcome. My question is how does one push for surgery or at least find out if the spots on the liver are resectable? Has anyone else gone down this route? Had this problem? How do you get a 2nd opinion and how long does this take?
I want to trust my onc but feel he is fobbing me off. I'm at a university hospital but the oncs are extremely busy and my next appointment - supposed to be the end of the month - hasn't even been scheduled yet. He's put me on Letrozole for the time being with the promise that he would let me know if I was highly sensitive enough for it to work but hasn't got back to me. I feel like after an initially good prognosis he has somewhat given up. Time is ticking and I don't what to do. . .
