My father has been diagnosed with stomach cancer, and his oncologist has missed many signs in his treatment--i.e remaining cancer spots on his stomach, jaundice--yellowing of his eyes.
Had the family not noticed the yellowing of the eyes and insisted he be treated for that first, he would have been started on CHEMO had his oncologist had his way.
My father currently has a metal stint in his system to remove the bile that has been sitting in his system for 3 months.He has a lot of family support and we need to know how to have him moved to another hospital. We are being told that it will take up to 6 weeks and the referral has to come from his current oncologist. Do you know if this is true? Please help us?
