Thank you so much, Dr. For clearing up a few things for me. Such as why there no other symptoms at present. (Steroids ) they had follow up with Oncologest today, and were told the 2nd surgery removed as much tumor as possible. Radiation and chemo in 4 weeks.  I wish all Doctors were as straight forward as you are.  I would rather know, then live with a false gentle answer, that is most likely no going to be the outcome.
