    Hello
    I had head and neck cancer with a massive 14 hour surgery and radiation. I am now cancer free and have a great quality of life! Not sure where exactly you have the cancer. Mine was in my nasal , maxilla and sinus. Now in my fifth year since surgery and all is good. There is light at the end of the tunnel! Contact me if you ever want to discuss anything. I am from NJ I you are close by in PA. Thanks Joe

    Hello
    I am also from NJ and going to Memorial Sloan Kettering for a prostatectomy with Dr Ehdaie. You mentioned you were considering Sloan. Did you go there and can you give me any info on Dr Ehdaie? Thank,you Joe

      Hi, Joe -- I think you're trying to reach someone else. I'm in FL (though originally from Brooklyn, not far from NJ). I wish you all the best of luck.

      Hi Joe. Dr Vincent Laudone was my surgeon. I do not know anything about him, but I found all of the staff there very skilled and very compassionate. While you can't choose cancer, you can choose what you do about it and where you do it. You picked the right place. When is the date of you procedure?

      Hi Bruce,
      I am going to the Josie Robertson Center on November 8th for the surgery. You probably know this already, it is Sloans newest place for prostate surgery. I asked for Dr Laudone at first but was told he only takes surgical patients. So I researched more and found Dr Ehdaie to have a great rating. He did my biopsy and never felt a thing he was great! I asked about going to Dr Laudone but was told no need because this Dr Ehdaie was a great surgeon. I agreed to stay with him. Not sure if I wanted to change now if I could.
      Wish I could find out how many prostatectomies Dr Ehdaie has done.
      Thank You so much for responding,
      Joe

      I'm sure Dr Ehdair will do great by you. Feel free to ask about his experience. I asked Dr Laudone questions such how many of these procedures has he done, how many in a year, how many had positive margins, all that stuff. He was very wiling to share. Put my mind at ease. I also liked that he was there from start to finish - not leaving tidying up to someone else. I see from your journey that it hasn't been an easy one. God speed my friend.
