      Hugs and healing vibes. You might want to get a third opinion given the fact both specialist you saw have such different ideas of what to do going forward. Aurburn is about 4 hours from NYC and 5 from Boston. Both cities have several world class cancer centers, you may want to consider go to one of them and there take on your case.
