Bert,

Good luck with the scoping! We are rooting for you.

I hate the waiting also.

Rich,

The search method that Catherine mentioned gets you everything that you have posted. If you don't find it there, there is another search method.

Next to your avatar (toward the top of the page when you are in the forum) it shows "Show Latest Posts | My Profile | Logout | Advanced Search"

Click on "Advanced Search". In the Keywords box, type in "Atlanta" or whatever else. That way you will see any post that includes that word.

Be sure to select a data range as well. If you select "Any date" it covers forever.

I did that search and found a bunch of posts that had Dr. recommendations in Atlanta and Augusta.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Hello Bert... I think your message is a very important one... DO NOT MISS YOUR FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS!

Although a scope every three months may sound excessive at first, it is because of the very nature of BC that this standard of care was developed. It has such a high rate of recurrence and catching it early is vital to having the best outcomes with treatment. For the first two years, it is very important to be checked every three months for that reason.

I'm glad to hear that your doctor feels he was able to get everything the second time around. It is definitely time to get a second opinion to confirm your diagnosis.

If you click on your user name in the box where your avatar is, then look at the bottom of the next page, you will see all the discussions you participated in. You can look through the old posts to find any doctor recommendations that were made at that time.

You may get some additional suggestions as well here from other members.

Best wishes... Catherine

Hello again
Jan 22 2011 i was diagnosed, tumor removed, some of you know the story. Missed my 3 month scope. My advice DO NOT MISS THE APPOINTMENT. Jan 21, 2012, blood in urine. Had a scope, 3 new tumors. REPEAT, DO NOT MISS YOUR 3 MONTH SCOPE. Tumors removed, supposedly clean again.
The reason for this post is last time I was on here someone told me of a good Dr in Augusta, Ga that was supposed to be very good. If anyone knows the name of this doctor or another that is close to Columbia, SC or Savannah, GA please reply with names. I would like to get another opinion from another doctor on my care and treatment
Thank you
Rich

P.S. DON'T MISS YOUR SCOPES
