    Decision Point

    right now were at the decison point of doing surgery to remove as much as possible to get better results or to go right ahead and start radaiton and chemo for 6 weeks, straight and then for 4 or 6 wks off !surgery we were told is very risky! will get more info at next drs appt on Feb 1st!
