Topic: Teddy Update
OMG! I am going to explode, need to VENT! Teddy was diagnosed in May that the cancer returned where the duodenum used to be (he had a Whipple) . Had PET Scan in June for cyberknife. Insurance said no cyberknife until he had radiation first. Finished radiation Labor Day weekend. Call today from radiologist office that new PET Scan scheduled for October 27th. I know it takes 2 weeks for results and then with CK set up it will be maybe early December before he gets CK. NOW...you tell me. Is not this cancer growing all this time????? Is this fair to make someone wait 8 months to get rid of cancer mass???? Am I totally wrong and need a chill pill? I just sent a note off to the radiologist that he needs to calm our stress! Any ideas?
