The doctors have run all the tests to determine if the cancer has spread beyond the liver. All the tests have come back negative; a huge relief for us. We can only view this as our first good news in a while.
We go see our first surgeon, a Dr. Steiber at Dekalb Medical Center in Decatur GA, on Monday afternoon after the MRI on Monday morning to start discussing surgery options at this point, if any.
I am still trying to get an appointment for her to see an oncologist at Winship (Emory Hospital). I am getting a little impatient and frustrated that I made the request on Monday and here it is Wednesday evening and we havent heard anything. Does anyone have any advice? I don't want to be "too pushy" because I don't want to be put "on the bottom of the list" to be seen.
I've read good things about the doctors and care at Winship (Emory). I know nothing about this Dr Steiber we're seeing on Monday afternoon, other than what I can find at this site...
Any opinions or advice on how to deal with Emory will be appreciated.
Best wishes to us all.....
