Thank you so much all. You are all awesome. Unfortunately I could not figure it out how to upload picture, tried using the avatar thing and it's telling me the size of the picture is more than 100 kb. I could happily private message to anyone who knows how to upload it.
Oh and the immunological stuff was about different tests done at the time of diagnosis. If I remember it correctly ki was about breasts cancer and the rest was to confirm that my wife has lynch syndrome.
God bless you all.
