Welcome to the board and sorry to hear about your uncle. I would definately try to stay in India if you and the Dr. Marion has suggested work out. Travelling such long distances when you dont feel well could in the long run do more harm than good. I hope the new doctor can answer your questions. There are several other treatment options available but they all are dependent on where the tumor is and how big it is. I brought in a list to my doctor, and unfortunately none of them could be done for me. You can search the board for proton beam therapy, chemoembolisation, radiation, photodynamic light therapy, SIRT spheres, there are definately others but I cant remember them now. There are people here (just a few) that have had their tumors disappear with chemo but it does sound like your uncles tumor is too big for that. The other possibility is surgery. Or taking chemo for the tumor to shrink enough for surgery. Your doctor will have more answers. Sorry to sound so vague but it really is so dependent on size and location that a doctor needs to look at it.
You are amazing. You really are the most wonderful (oops I am forgetting your title) Patient Support Advocate, Coordinator (?). You have made so many contacts and not just in the US. When you are able to help people as far away from you as India, it just shows how much your networking at conferences is paying off. And it proves how much the CC Foundation has grown since it was first founded. I bet when Mark's family started it, they had no idea how important it would be the the cc community and how much good it would do...even across international boarders. So a BIG thank you to the Clements family, you and the CC Foundation for all that you guys do for us.
Cancer is a word, not a sentence.
