My Dad who is 83 was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with CC, which we were told is inoperable due to spots on the liver.  He has started Gemzar chemo and after 2 weeks is handling that incredibly well - no side effects at all except some general tiredness, but a bit of that has been normal anyway!

So, we've started.  However, given how rare this cancer is, I would like to get a second oncology opinion.  My parents live in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area in North Carolina, with both UNC and Duke close by.  Can anyone recommend an oncologist that has treated this type of cancer, for a second opinion?  I would appreciate any recommendations.

Thank you and bless whomever started this site - it has been so helpful!
