 Hi,

   I think you are asking me why I didnt do systemic treatment....I was given that option along with the option of going to Boston for the ILP......and I went down for the consult at Mass General and felt the ILP was a good option for me....and I would "save" the bio chemo for "later"....so the ILO has an 85% "cure" rate.....according to the surgeon I saw who did the procedure...I was NED for 7 months after the procedure......so anyways after two more reoccurences (now have had 6), the only treatment offered (other than clinical trials, which werent offered but I looked into and decided I ddint want to do any yet), was radiation...so I thought I would do that again.....shut down the lymph channels as I have in transit (in the lymph system) mets.....does this help????

Donna in Vermont (now Vermont_Donna)........lol......stage 3
