Prognosis

Lets just say it isn’t great but there is no sense putting a number to it for the following reasons:

  1. She is young which will work in her favour for being able to tolerate the treatments
  2. She has no other medical issues that might complicate treatment
  3. The surgery was very successful and hopefully removed 99% of the tumor which was large
  4. The standard numbers for prognosis are based on results that are several years old.  With new treatments, it takes several years for the prognosis numbers to reflect these improvements
  5. Radiation treatment is improving rapidly as new equipment and methodology comes to the market
  6. The prognosis numbers do not include results of clinical trials
