Tomorrow I have a lung biopsy. There is some risk with this procedure, so I will be fastening my Zen seatbelt and hope to cruise through.
Finding the best care has become a top priority. My oncologist is good, but I need great. Friends have been fantastic stepping in and helping me to find an oncologist who is more dynamic and willing to discuss research and options. We are also seeking a referral at Rochester Mayo, I plan to go there for a second opinion. Mayo has a depth of research in immunotherapy and this is likely a treatment option that I want to try. Best care in lung cancer is definitely NOT going to be chemotherapy and my understanding is that Mayo has access to PD-1 drugs before they come onto the market due to their role in clinical trials.
