Re: HAI pump without Dr. K at MSK

I'd go with Dr. K just because as just as punky44 says you deserve the best. With that being said OSU is doing some great things. I've been going there and have had great luck.with them but I have lung mets.
Good luck

Re: Heart murmur...possible side effect folfiri avistin??

Thanks WS. I'll keep you posted and try to remember to ask my onc if she thinks it's a side effect, she's extremely upfront so I know she'll give me straight answers.
