OK...I'm ranting & apologize in advance.....
but.... am I the only one whose Oncologists won't provide anything but vague replies & absolutely nothing positive? I understand I live in a "lawsuit happy" state....but...sheeesh!
The only answer I get when asking specific questions regarding side effects,etc. is "Everybody Is Different" (well, no sh&&, Sherlock!). Oh yeah, did I mention the condescention in their voice ('just deal with it & don't question me').
I'm half-way through my chemo and, like most of us, getting radiation afterwards. I've rec'd more information from this forum than from any one of my three Oncologists.
Considering the fact that we're fighting for our lives & the astronomiccal cost, you would think the least they could do is offer SOME better details & a slight ray of hope. You cannot tell me that they don't know what happens 'generally', given certain sets of circumstances.
OK, I'm done & embarrassed....Just frustrated, grumpy & in pain.
