For the record -- the reason for seeing PCP is just due to level of trust my husband has in her.
After we get the results of the bone scan he's having on Thursday and the CAT scan he had last week, we'll see the oncologist --
And, we've been going to this VA for a decade and have been more than pleased with it. We've rarely felt that he's been lost in the bureaucracy. Believe me that when I feel that -- I'm in their faces about
In fact many times I feel they over test and over treat for some of his complaints. He's not the most stoic person in the face of discomfort
I do appreciate all your input - and I do think we know we have quite a ways to go before we get to any decision. I do tend to over research -- and I'm a big fan of forums, but I do realize that talking to the physician will be the best idea.
I'll check in again after the results of the scans are in.
