Thank you both JeffG and Maryanne,
You are my inspiration. Jeff- can I ask your advice on an issue we are struggling with? My father went through 3 rounds of chemoembolization. They used adriamycin and mitomycin???? not sure exactly if spelling is correct, however, when we read about others who received embolization, it seems as though nobody received the same cocktail as my father. My brother would like to get a second opinion from a Dr Geschwinn that helped Colleen's husband. When I called I found out that each facility is different in the chemo they use for this procedure. I would like to take dad to either MD Anderson or Sloan for second opinion, as I feel this would be a better approach, and he seems to be getting more ill. My brother and I seem to be at odds on what route to take next. He is losing more weight, vomiting, and having more abd pain. Then I read about Dr. Canady doing surgery on a young female that had bile duct cancer with 75% of her liver involved. I am quite curious as to why others haven't sought this Dr out? I left my father's home in ND yesterday in tears as I am so confused, worried, unsure of what direction to turn, and want to do the right thing. I thank you so very much for your prayers, because I know, without the help of God in this difficult disease, I am not sure where our family would be. Dad's neighbor's pastor said a prayer to the congregation re: my father, and he prayed that God would lead dad to a Dr. that could get rid of this tumor. I am wondering if this is a sign that I should be looking towards Dr. Canady.
I hope I am not sounding crazy,
Thank you again for you loving support, and for being such a great inspiration to all of us!
