Joyce, please don't delete the post. We all need to vent and probably most of the time it is about the hurry up and wait problem. Testing and delays seem to be what we have to endure. I am sorry about Cathi's delay and will keep her in my prayers. Oh, and by the way, I love sour lemons.
Joyce: I didn't know that there was any other kind of lemons other than sour! That's what makes them so unique and wonderful! Don't apologize for writing what you did and as the others have said, don't delete it. This disease sucks to put it bluntly. I agree w/ you about the tests and the drs. I am attempting to go back to my original onco because the new one didn't want to continue to refill the pain meds that I had been on for 5 yrs. She decided that I needed to go on oxcyton or morphine. Excuseeeeee meeeee. I know how to take the pain meds and how to make them work. I told her that I didn't know what the future held but I didn't want to use pain med that I might need later. I told her that 4 broken ribs were cause for my increase in taking the meds and she laughed. She said that if I was in pain then maybe we had better order some more tests. I don't need anymore darn tests. I just need an onco that cares and listens. It's not fair what so many of our members are having to go thru and the number of new members that have drs that are NOT explaining test results or ordering tests to insure that there isn't any cancer. If anything is going to get done, it is going to have to be us..the women that are dealing w/ this disease on a daily basis. We are the ones that are going to have to stand up and make the medical and political community listen.
Cathi and her dd have my prayers. Please keep us updated.
Hugs and smiles..Deb
