We live in Ontario and the more I read up on treatment options for stage 3 the more I read that my bf should be getting surgery to attempt removal of the tumour. My explanation for this is that it is attached to fatty tissue so that is why they can't remove it. I understand not being able to remove it totally surgically, but wouldn't chemo have a better chance at working if there wasn't such a large mass to kill? I'm getting scared that they're not treating this right and he's going to fall through the cracks somehow and become a statistic. I'm obviously not a doctor, but even my friend who's an MD is concerned that they're not discussing a surgical option. If anyone could offer suggestions I'd really appreciate it.
