My husband goes to Dr. Wallace(oncologist) at Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem but I do know that Baptist is supposed to have good doctors too. If we lived closer to Durham, we probably would have gone to Duke for an opinion.
We talked with another person in a similar situation as ours and he really was impressed with Duke.
This is a very scary time and I can only imagine what you are going through with small children. Prayers are with you and please keep us posted. I read the additions to this site every day and it has really encouraged me--there are so many people in similar situations.
Caretaker of husband, Bob.
Diagnosed Jan, 2007
I live in North Carolina and was seen by a top Urologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for a second opinion. Where is your husband living in NC? I assume that he is over in the more Western part of the State?
I can't imagine how you feel with your husband away from you and you having to manage with the little children. Believe me when I say that you have come to a good place for help and we will do the best we can to help you.
After your consult with Dr. Torti, if you and your husband (sometimes the Dr will recommend it) decide on a second opinion, UNC Hospital is very, very good, and also Duke University is ranked in the top 10 US Hospitals for both Cancer and Urology.
Please keep us posted and don't hesitate to talk this through out loud or to ask any question great or small.
