Early study found it had high accuracy, but experts say it won't replace colonoscopy anytime soon
All good advice. Also stay out of the sun. Drs. orders.
Matthew has two very good loving parents by his side.
Praying for more normal moments.
Matthew is not this way because of anything you did. I agree he should have anything to help keep him comfortable.

I will be lifting you all up in prayer.

Thank you all. I would have thought they would have wanted to continue his care since they know his case. We were told they would give HOPE and they did a good job. At this moment my son looks good and the MRI is the same. But every time we are in the office we are told no more treatment by them from any of the N.O., Neuro-Endo., or any Dr. at their hospital; and they are a team...
Littlemo, It is my unmarried adult son. He was caught at the end of college before he could get a decent job with decent health coverage with only government Mass Health, Neighborhood Health Plan which pays the Drs. 36 cents to each dollar. He has gone through so much in the last 2 1/2 years to get where he is right now. July 1, this year will make the 3 year mark which is when they thoug...
We have been told that our son cannot have any care anymore, any time, ever again at Mass General Hospital when the c cell starts to grow back. ?What? ?Do they want him to die?

They di...
