We have had a second and third opinion from a doctor at Columbia Presbyterian and UPENN (who works with JHH on some of the clinical trials they are running). They both agreed with the course of treatment including the radiation which is why I'm a little concerned with the notion of dropping it.

We will definitely ask the oncologist (who is a professor at a Beth Israel in NY and has an excellent reputation) but I just wanted some more advice and any opinions so that I could add to my knowledge. I also wondered if anyone had used a similar protocol for the GAX and/or radiation and how their oncologist handled it. I know each patient is different and I know the oncologist we are working with has our best interests at heart. I just feel knowledge is power.
