No wonder the oncologists and clinicians could not say with conviction what one could expect; they just had to recite the 'shopping list' of side effects. There's no second guessing each patient's reactions and the severity of the side effects.
And while it is early days yet, it seems evident to me that the place to treat cancer is in a public, teaching institution unless you have a bottomless bank account or a health insurance policy to die for (unfortunate pun!) for all the investigations, incidental medication and diagnostics - never mind the oncologist's fees and hospital and/or clinic charges.
Moreover, that's only the tip of the iceberg and only from the financial perspective. In my opinionated opinion, a holistic approach and a team are essential. Sure it can be done in other ways, but then the burden is so much heavier on the patient and the care-giver.
You are in your own hands and the hands of one man or woman. You don't have access to a cancer panel, neither does your oncologist. But then it doesn't matter as long as you are 100% confident in him or her.
