          Hey, Adrian, I think your "carpe diem" philosophy is spot on, though your day would have more life in it if you stuck to one or two beers.

              Adrian:
              Enjoy life and be happy. I like a drink as much as anyone but I stay dry on weekdays. If you keep having 4-8 beers a day I just might know what the future holds.

                        I got another "all clear" today and a new onco for this summer(a woman) .

                        I dont' know what to think about what she said to me today.

                        1-At the end of my chemo my hair and beard came back very strong but since 3 or 4 weeks i have almost no mustache. She is not sure if it will come back and told me that i won't need to shave this area and that my wife will like it.

                        2-She said to me that the odds of induced leukemia for RT + chemo are between 2 and 4%(instead of 1 or 2 like my regular onco told me). But she also told me that she never saw any case of induced leukemia in her career. I think 4% is very high it's like 1/25 ISSSHHHHHH!. What is the real odds for my case? Can someone ask to an american onco to have more than 2 opinion on this?

                          I believe the odds are much lower than that. One study found, "Among 10,000 patients given a treatment dose of 25 Gy and followed for 15 years, an excess of nine leukemias is predicted; cisplatin-based chemotherapy (dose, 650 mg) might result in 16 cases of leukemia."
