Hi Nicole, We e-mailed one other time. You convinced me to get the ball rolling in Arizona with Dr. Von Hoff. My husband is 49, just changed from stage 3 to 4 (one liver met)and is feeling good right now. He hasn't had any tx since Oct 20 so we need a plan - fast! His records have all been sent to Joyce at Tgen and we're waiting for a phone call. At the same time, John Hopkins has called to schedule an appt there. I think we're going to try to go to both places and see what 'feels right'. I'm actually more excited about Dr. Von Hoff based on what I've read. I do have a question for you: I was thinking that we could have a biopsy sent to Arizona and than have an appt but when our doctor's nurse in MN called Joyce in AZ, Joyce said nothing was needed but the records right now. Did you have an initial consulatation and than have the biopsy sent or was the biopsy sent first and than you met with Dr. Von Hoff?
