Topic: In need of a local oncologist
We met with the oncologist at MSKCC yesterday. The pathology reports confirm CC. They want to start her on 3 rounds of gem/cis. As much as I love the care at Sloan, I cant keep driving mom into NYC for treatments weekly. The 4 hour round trip is wearing on me. Has anyone done their treatments closer to home and done the scans and procedures at a larger hospital?
We live in the Philadelphia suburbs so we have great hospitals here. I just don't want to have to have her start over.
We already had a problem with mom where her blood pressure was dropping and she was dizzy. Turns out she was dehydrated. The docs said it was because she is not eating as much. She drinks a ton and although she is eating much less (and with a limited diet), she still eats healthy food. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Thanks in advance,
