Topic: I hope you can pray for me on 6/23/2011 for my 2nd resection-thanks

Hi,
The coming Thursday  at 1000 am ,6/23/2011. I will have my 2nd resection for CC.
Please if you can,say a little prayer for me on that day.

The first resection on 2009,I asked all my high school classmates(148 of them) to pray for me.
This time around,I will ask the members of this board to join hands to pray for you or your love one and me on 6/23/2011 if you allow me to have the honor for being asking you.

The power of prayer is by far the best medicine for me and all of us who suffer from illness.
God bless.

Hi, Lesley,
It helps in a way that I know what to ask for the pathology dept of the hospital to have  the " unstained "slides and the thickness of them. But Lesley, I think we both are thinking too far ahead of the biomarkers technology.
I don't think most of the lab can do "unfrozen cut" of the tissues submitted by the surgeon. I think the specimens must be frozen to be solid enough for cutting.
This time due to the pathology report indicated  there are only focal atypical ductal epithelium and no definitive carcinoma identified.Therefore after talking to the doctors;we both agree we will not do the biomarkers for chemo-sensitive testing .
The EGFR,VEGFR1,VEGFR2 RRM1 and ERCC1 were suggested by my oncologist but he indicated there are no consensus   or criteria or protocol  among the oncologists to really look into them and use them to the best way they should and the sensitivity of each test is not  well standardized .
In short, these kind of testing may be  a few years head  of its time.

The following  is copied from Gavin's research on the "Web Forum",take a look at it and you will have a better idea about this kind of testing.

Again, if we all work together and contribute our share,I believe the next 5 year will be very exciting in CC research.
God bless.
