This is the type of sh** I put up from from the Canadian medical system and the BCCA in particular: Husband has suspected brain mets as suddenly cannot speak. Palliative guy schedules for a "Head x-ray". I go directly to the radiation oncologist who dealt with the situation when he went cross eyed. She calls hospital (where I took him for an emergency CT instead of the "head X-ray" at a local outfit) and is told that there are no apparent brain mets but large lump in base of skull. So she asks me if I want radiation to his skull base. I emailed back with, "Is the met pressing on a nerve, as his tongue isn't moving." she comes back with "Sorry I don't have time for these chats." EXCUSE ME??? As a taxpayer I fund you, madam! This is my life partner. It takes a shorter while to type "yes" than to write lines like that. So angry!
