I found a new doc and told him that I was willing to trust him, but I needed to know stuff and have questions answered. He has done this. I did wait and see for the next round of chemo, about 10 months after the cancer had again become visible. It has now been almost six years since my original terminal diagnosis. I am on my sixth chemo drug.
