HEllo AMy, I just got the phone call from Dr. Didolcar from Sinai. My step-father is a candidate. This is the first good news we have had. I believe cyberknife also is in synch with the breath. I feel so overwhelmed- not that this is about me at all. I want to give him the best options possible. I have been mostly alone in the research process. I don't want to make a mistake presenting him with options that could make him worse- I could never live with myself. My step-father,Brad, will be 50 on Feb 16th

Dr. Didolcar said that if the tumor shrank that maybe he would be a candidate for surgery, however, this is unlikely. The tumor is encompassing his celiac artery, portal vein and artery. I though that JHH was very skilled at doing surgeries involving vascular issues? Did they say they would not perform the surgery? What treatment plan is your husband on to shrink the tumor. HAve you heard of Dr. Picozzi in Seattle WA. Did your husband have the Trilogy treatment? Sorry for all the questions just feeling........... not so sure

Thank you kindly
