the best thing to do is to have your records and files checked by an actual Neuroendcrine expert, NOT just a local Onco that most likely knows very-very little specifics about this tumor type.

They will give you the best possible hope for a longer term survival. Some of what you stated above is correct and some is just wording, ect....

If you remember last week, we talked about the met's and detection. I personally feel that in ' some ' cases, a surgeon will remove the primary and see no met's and tell you that all is clear when in actuality, I feel that small mets have already been seeded, too small to be detected.

If my theory is correct, the PT was falesly told they had no more Cancer. I am NOT saying the Dr. did this on purpose, just saying that I feel this happens alot of the time.....later the person finds liver mets that are not new, just now they are big enough to be detected.
