I "broke up" with my first oncologist and had the privilege of meeting with Dr. Rebecca Dent and her team on March 19.  What a different experience to be seen at that center!
 
She has put me on clodronate to hopefully prevent bone mets. (See articles from NCI - Dr. Mark Clemons and other researchers have been doing studies). The research is hopeful that it may be helpful to early stage breast cancer.
 
Her team talked about exercise...diet...etc., BRCA, second mastectomy, reconstruction, chemo treatments, all the things we discuss here on this site. What a pleasure to talk to a team of doctors that really care about the whole patient/person.
 
Dr. Rebecca Dent is a woman who could be a model. She is a tall, beautiful, classy lady, who is witty, caring, and (intelligent is a given).
 
I will keep you posted. I have to go back in mid April.
