clarification, and more info (by Judy)

First, a clarification — the areas on my lung are TINY spots, and they don’t know if it’s cancer or scar tissue and they’re too small to be tested. My oncologist isn’t worried about the lungs, but is concerned about the progression of the cancer in my liver. She’s going to start me on Xeloda and Tykerb — 2 chemo pills.

At the same time, I’m going to get a second opinion. I have a few names of oncologists that have worked with IBC and come highly recommended. So I’m going to talk to my oncologist tomorrow about all of this and hope she can expedite the process of getting an appointment with whoever I see.
