    Dear Gavin and the rest ,

    First of all thanks for all you do in proving all of us information and support through the discussion board.  The article / study you just shared with us makes two statistical statements that give me pause

    In the opening of the study it makes that statement that the five-year survival rater is less than 17.5 % is this true statement. I hear so many different stats, but this one seems to be current.  The other stat says that less than 7% qualify for surgery. I thought the number was more like 20%

     

    I know stats are important to consider but not to live by. I just wonder if you have any thoughts about the validity of the stats and whey there is such a range… If feels like a lot of really smart people are telling us very different facts. It is hard to sort though.

    Thought anyone

    Thanks in advance

    Rev. Wayne

    Worth a read IMO, esp the summary if you just want to skip the main article.
