      Hey Michele, sorry things are rough right now....have they said why they haven't given you anymore answers than they have?? I would push them for questions. Is this a cancer center where the doctors work together or just one doctor. You can get a second opinion, you don't have to go with the first one you get. As an advocate I can help you get that info. You don't have to go through this alone, I am here to take this journey with you. Hang in there. My mom is a cancer survivor so I've been in your shoes.
