Have Cancer, Just Sit and Wait?

I'm glad you got to talk to your dr and hope you feel better now that you know what she's thinking.

My feelings about a second opinion is that you're not necessarily looking for someone who will contradict her but that you want to make sure you know all your options. Maybe another dr concur with her opinion or maybe suggest anoter way to go. Either way you might get some comfort in knowing what someone else has to say.

Sending lots of 's your way. I know how hard this must be for you.

Cindy --


If you are inclined to agree with your doc (I just don't know enough about cervical cancer to know what is wise), you could suggest a more intensive follow-up schedule.

While we (doc and I) were "watching" my CA-125 and an ovarian cyst, I had the CA-125 drawn every 3 weeks. By watching closely we were able to determine "waiting" wasn't a good idea.


For a second opinion, you could try looking in

http://www.sgo.org - which is the gyn onc society.


You would actually be suprised at how often the fancy experts differ in opinion. I got second opinions at 2 places known for treating ovca (MD Anderson in Texas and Johns Hopkins). The opinions were not the same. I had both write reports and give to my local gyn onc. No one was offended or upset and we ended up using parts of all the suggested treatment/follow-up plans.
