Re: No comments on.... Carol
Surgery is the best hope. But unfortunately, it isn't for everyone. Once it spreads they feel it isn't going to help like it would otherwise. But each case is individual, i.e., it depends where it spreads, too. Kaiser just says a blanket No if there is spread, but Mayo and UCLA will judge each case individually. UCLA says it depends on her response, if it is good they will "take it up with the surgeon." But even so, her insurance is Kaiser. They will not pay for UCLA. Some people have sued Kaiser and won, but I'm sure that takes precious time. We are still at the beginning. We don't know how she will respond. Right now she is suffering from the effects of the chemo, and we still don't know how it is affecting her general condition. We have a long, hard way yet to go.
