Hi mrs. I wish I would have checked back and read this post months ago. Unfortunately, I trusted the treatment and stopped checking this board. I feel so guilty now. I should have sought out that specialist. My brother is a doctor (primary care), but I think he is in denial. He just accepts whatever the doctor says. I don't know that my mom got the written copies of all the tests. I told her she needed to do this, but I don't think she did. I am going to try to make an appointment with his oncologist to review my questions and get copies of everything. I did go to the initial appointment with my dad. It just frustrates me that after the surgery, there was no sign of cancer in his lymph nodes and now after treatment, he has it in his lymph nodes and it's systemic. I don't know if there would have been something I could have done months ago, and I feel terrible. I am dubbed the cynical child and I hate to impose my thoughts and ideas. I always need to know the answers and that tires my parents. Anyway, I do appreciate your post. It gives me some new ideas -- hopefully I am not too late now:-(
