      I agree, study, learn, and ask questions of the DR.s but which one has a higher survival rate, that's too susceptable to alot of factors to be a cut and dry answer. Each case is different, each person is different. Ask questions of the people who are supposed to know what's going on, and continue to ask until you understand and are happy with the answers, then have faith in them, most are very smart people and that's what they get paid to do, so...I trust that who is working on me knows whats going on and whats the best for me. But I will ask every question until I think I am as smart as he is.

      Duicinea you put things in perspective... You've been there and DONE THAT! I appreciate every word & it helps. Well I sent this new study CT/PET (intertwined) scan to the surgeon who will be operating. Every caner case is different & the extent of the cancer will not be known until I go in the operating room. May God guide your way and light your path because every word you stated was answers to my prayers! THANKS!
