@janlanderz Gee, your first oncologist sounds like he needs to retire! But I am so glad that you’re advocating for yourself. Telling an elderly parent is a hard decision, isn’t it? I had to make the same decision, but when I ended up in the hospital getting a brain biopsy, one of my sisters told our Mom. So now my 96 yr old mother worries about me!
Questions you might want to ask the new oncologist: is the current diagnosis correct and are you on the right treatment; how will you know if you get another DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and what is best treatment and what can you do to prevent another one;
Have you thought of seeing a therapist, someone you could talk to? It might really help, you wouldn’t feel so alone. It certainly helped me. Please stay in touch. We care
