Oct 30, 2017 · Diagnosed with sarcoma? Let's share in Cancer

I am concerned that you have not received the results of the radiation test. Call or email every day to find out what the results were or if the test needs to be redone. Write down who you talk with at each phone number, what day you called and what you were told, word for word. I prefer email because it notes who the contact person was, what time, and I have Exactly what was said.

It is possible that the results came back negative, so the case was filed without notifying you. Still, keep track of who says what on what day, so that you will not have more than one person telling you they do not know, to try someone else. Or if you find out something, the same person is more likely to remember and help you with the next step. It really helps if you have someone else go to any appointments with you so that they can verify that information with anyone else you speak with. They can also help you remember and sort it all out.

Your support is very helpful and important to his treatment. He will be more carefully monitored when you reinforce him to the staff when he needs more attention, like the pain medications. When you are attentive to his daily condition (and let the staff know that), he will not get shuffled from one person to another and miss important care for his treatment and for his comfort. Please continue to keep him and his care close to your heart. I assure you it has and will do LOTS of good!

I was referred to the local (teaching hospital which has the current information and equipment. I got a lot better treatment there. The doctors were specialists that worked as a team. If I had not had the referral, I would have had to make appointments with them each a few months apart, for far more money and better care. Ask your doctor about it.

I see I should have investigated the subject. All I noticed was the pruritis. Please delete my comment if possible.

Benzocaine comes in topical forms (also called lidocaine). I buy Solarcaine but it can be in a generic form, too. I get the spray so touching the skin is not necessary. It also comes in a gel form, for dry skin that’s oily.
