Hi msgreen1958

Thank you for your post and I'm very sorry about your diagnosis.

Most people believe a second opinion is extremely important and I am one of them. A good doctor will be fine with you choosing to do this.Ask as many questions as you need and find out all your options.

I wish you the best and please stay in touch with us!
