      Uva,

       I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. Just try and stay calm, I know this is really difficult time right now. As others mention you need to research and research some more. You need to be very educated about this d disease. Staying on top of different treatment options and addressing them with your oncol.

      One thing that I would suggest doing if you are not already. Is bringing at least 1 other person with you to your appts. Everyone picks up of different things that are said and thinks of different questions to ask. By doing this you'll have a better chance of recalling what the doctor had to say. Best of luck and keep us all posted
