Linking you to resources and support in the lung cancer community!
I went to oncologist yesterday. Three years ago I had my right lower lobe removed. They keep changing oncologists here. I understand it is because of the politics. Oh well.
Anyway I went three months ago, and this (new) oncologist told me not to have anymore blood work done for a year. With my surgery there were no lymph nodes sent to lab. Dr. lied to me I told him I did not think that was why the government was broke. I told him I have been short of breath. He said well you had part of your lung removed didn't you. What a creep. I also have copd. I really don't care if I see this creep again. I hope he moves on to another state.
I told my daughter I was going to talk to someone there about this but she said it could make it bad for me. I am thinking I still am because this dr. is so in love with himself, I am sure he could not have feelings for anyone else.
He also said if you were two years lung cancer free he was 90% sure it would not come back, if a person did not smoke. I quite smoking long ago. I am not sure he I right about this however.
I just wanted to vent. Thank you and Happy New Year.
