Hello I'm new here,My father has been diagnosed as having some kind of Lymphoma. He has been in alot of pain for 3 months but was told that he had arthritis in his back. Well after months of suffering he had a Ct guided byopsy last week to determin the type of cancer. Last night his doctor called and told him he has a Lymphoma but the cells were crushed during the harvesting so now he needs to have surgery. He still has not seen an oncologist only his family doctor. Shouldn't he be seeing a specialist by now? Isn't every day of treatment delay a bad thing??I'm getting so frustrated with the system he needs help now! He cant lay down, sleeps up right in a chair, cant eat becouse it makes him feel sick. He's getting weaker every day any advice that you can give to speed up the process would be greatly appriciated.
