Elizabeth Edwards states that her cancer is terminal. When do you know that your cancer is terminal - or not? Does a doctor make that determination?
My DIL has Stage 4 OVCA diagnosed May 14, 2009. She had a liver resection (no cancer there, praise God). She's had everything removed - ovaries, oomentum, F tubes, cervix, uterus, part of intestine, a mass from her diaphragm. The next surgery was a pleurectomy and the thoracic sugery also removed malignant lymph nodes from her lungs.
How would you rate/grade, whatever, my DIL based on what I have told you?
