Well, it took awhile to get there! Never give up. The first diagnosis the DR gives you is not always the final one. I have seen so many people go from inoperable to NED on this board! Every single one is a victory. For newbies...don't read the stats on Google. Much of it is outdated. I am very happy for the both of you!
