Fred Hutchinson is a research place. I'm being treated mostly at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Center. Fred Hutchinson is across the street. I'm on a trial medication . Four big blue pills every morning.

Yes you are at the right place.

I wonder if you have the name of the trial?

If you think that is prying just ignore it.

And for everyone, this is how to get the best care. Everyone takes Medicare rates, and so just look up the best place for your problem, in your area, or not in your area if it is rare, and go there.

In planning for my congenital valve repair I did not want someone who did valve jobs every now and again.

When I got to the Cleveland clinic my assigned cardiologist said how do you know your surgeon, is he a family friend? The doctor did not just take anyone. He has a several month wait list ( supposedly) and what not.

I said I looked up the best surgeon, in the entire world and thought that was good enough for me. Everyone in the Entourage of the cardiologist laughed.

I heated up, so to speak ( when I stood up my BP dropped 43 points!!!) so I could not wait.

I wound up with number five, in the world. It turned out ok. There was some difficulty. and then a post op complication, that could have been avoided, but well, the surgeon was top notch.

I made it through, and then knew that my surgeon had the dexterity of ten women. ( She is a woman cardio thoracic surgeon)

They recruit just like in baseball. The surgeon had trained in NY and so on.

All the best smitty.

I just want this thread on the front page so I can find it more easily. I'm still doing well near as I can tell. Will find out more next month.
