    Decision Point: We have been seeing a doctor at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. His office is very disorganized and to top things off, he now has a new staff. There has not been great continuity with patients and scheduling their appointments. We are in the search for a new Oncologist in the same hospital. Can anyone recommend one?

      Any chance of getting her to Sloan Kettering at all? They are the best

    Side Effects (Depression/Anxiety): She was given a steriod with her chemo which gave her sterio psychosis. Scary when it hit. Still has recurring symptoms but much milder than the original bout.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): My mom was diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer metasized to the liver in February of 2011. She had surgery first then chemotherapy. Early November had the Yttrium-90 Radioembolization. We are in the waiting period to see the effectiveness of this treatment. In the meantime, she will continue on chemotherapy starting this week.
