Re: Hi..from a newbie

Hi everyone, many thanks for all the sound replies. I have an appointment on Monday for my scan results and will talk to my oncologist then. It seems really odd making a decision purely for myself, everything usually revolves round the family and what is best for them, parents are just not used to p...
