One thing that I need to say is that I was told by my radiologist that I needed to have radiation treatment after the surgery. My surgeon was not real keen on the item. The radiologist had never seen my type of cancer before and did not have a specific protocol for this type of cancer, so he wanted to radiate my entire torso and wanted to do treatments for a long period of time. When we researched this, we found that radiation is not effect on all types of cancer (mine being one of those) and we had to consider the side effects of the treatment he suggested. Every one of my major organs, even those those were all healthy, would have had doses of radiation for a long period of time. I opted out of the radiation treatment. I like fried chicken (occasionally) but I didn’t want to be fired chicken. So far, I made the right choice.
