Hello all. I live in the toronto area. My mother in law has just been DX with throat cancer. she is 85, has lost more than 20lbs and now is 87 lbs. I am very worried. Idiot doc here! they sent her home and NOW she has to wait for the flipping oncologist to call her with the results of th biopsi, and the CT's of throat, lungs and stomach. You would figure that she should have been kept in the hospital. They are talking Radation. but when? I am so frustrated. Scared she will die before Xmas. Just want to talk to someone bout what they think. Would this happen in the US ?
