Stay motivated. You are smart to seek a second opinion regarding your health situation, as some doctors take different views on treatments. I am in the process of seeking opinions through various doctors regarding radiofrequency ablation-a technique which has been successfull inliver tumor metasasis patients-which I have.
At this point, my treatment has not included Erbitux, so I am not able to comment on that drug. Oxilaplatin, Leucavorin fl 5-5U and Avastin consist of my treatment. There had been a recent incident on my 10th chemo treatment which illustrated that the nurses made a BLATENT ERROR for not including Avastin for ALL of my treatments; simply put, it was discovered by one attentive nurse that it had NEVER BEEN ADMINISTERED TO ME-the nurses weren't reading my doctor's notes.
The above incidient you have just read raised a red flag in my head, and made me realize that I am responsible for directing my appropriate treatment, and making certain it is being correctly administered. That is why I am a strong believer in patients using their right to seek opinions from other doctors. I ask doctors all kinds of questions, and I don't care if they may think of them as redundant.
Best wishes to you in your treatment
