Dr. Gladdy called me this morning...... She has done some research on the family gene of Gorlin's Syndrome. Because my dad and brother are positive for it , she wants me to get tested for it as well. If it is positive, radiation will not be a possibility, as it WILL cause skin cancer.... I need to get Gerry's genetics papers and my father's if he has them and send them to her. I now have to schedule a rib x-ray as well as a jaw x-ray. They said they will be able to tell if I have Gorlin's through the x-rays. If they show positive for Gorlin's I will be getting chemotherapy instead. The good news part of that is if I need chemo instead of radiation, chemo will be done in Ottawa. Dr. Gladdy strongly feels that I do have the Gorlin syndrome as having this type of cancer at my age is very very rare. The usual age for sarcoma is 45 and up. She said that Gorlin's syndrome people are very susceptible to sarcoma and skin cancers. Going to call Dr. Auer later to get the schedule for the xrays and post later.
