I saw Dr. Michael Birrer on Tuesday for a second opinion. He said I am on the right chemo for now and to finish the next 9 weeks then have repeat scans, etc. He was very nice and gave me hope. Thank you, Diane, for recommending him
I was diagnosed in November 2017 with high grade ovarian: 70% endometrioid adenocarcinoma, FIGO grade 3, 25% serous, high grade, 5% clear cell. This is from my surgical pathology report. Grade 2c. Am currently receiving chemo with carboplatin and taxol.
I have called and faxed records to Dr Birrer in Birmingham asking to see him for a consultation/second opinion. So far, no luck with this, have left several messages with Jeannette.
Diane, are you in touch with him or know if he’s seeing patients there yet? If not, do you suggest anyone else? I live in Houston, had surgery by a GYN oncologist and chemo by Kelsey-Seybold, my Medicare provider. I’m an RN and feel confident that my care most likely wouldn’t be different at MD Anderson.
