See this is the perfect example of the medical field/medical industry neglect. Of NOT listening to their patients. What happened to the patient knows their own body and have a say so in the treatment, we have thos right BY LAW. Adding a postscript to this, : There should be a clause added in the insurance policies. Stating within 90 days of the first diagnosis, if there is a second opinion that is properly diagnosed, the patient shouldn't have to suffer a double whammy of paying both drs, eoth the deducable. After all, a dr can NOT be a weather man. They have to go off labs, and be absolutely accurate, or people die.


My husband's uncle lived for over 12 years with this cancer. There were a few Christmas letters stating he had beaten it. I didn't think that was possible, and apparently I was right. He passed 2 years ago to this terrible cancer. My aunt had ovarian cancer for over 20 years and sadly lost her battle last year. Another tough one to catch.
