Is this an oncologist talking because I would have knocked him back to the womb for that comment. Has Dan been seen by an oncologist or just a Family doctor. HE needs to see an oncologist. If all the doctors do are administer pain meds then they are probably right, but if they treat the cancer then that is another story. How does this doctor know that there are 2 different cancers involved? Has this been confirmed yet? Has anyone told you exactly what is going on? Something should be done for the cancer not just the pain. Sorry do not know the answers to these questions just Med staff getting me angry from what you are telling me. I would strongly recommend a second opion and FAST!!!!TIme is wasting and thisis ridiculous how you are being treated by this staff.

Punky.............are you looking into getting another opinion on all this??? Where is St. Mary's in PA? I am in Lancaster County. It seems that a second opinion would certainly be warranted here. Pain at your hubby's level is unacceptable and so is you doc's manner. I'm sorry about it all.
