How often did any of you see the ENT through treatment? The ENT my dad went to did not impress us during the first visit. The whole time he talked to his nurse and explained very little to us. The only reason I understood anything was because of the research I had done. He never told us that the CT scan looked good or really anything else. He just told us what the treatment was and did not give us much hope for a good outcome. When we went to the cancer doctors everything was more positive. The ENT told my dad he would have to have the neck dissection. The cancer doctor told us maybe.
My dad had an appointment to go back to the ENT two weeks ago to schedule the surgery, but I postponed because he had just started treatment. He now has on for June 7th. Does it make more since to go after treatment to determine if he needs the surgery. I don't want my dad to go and get the poor outlook attitude when he is doing so good with treament and finally has a good outlook and is feeling better.
Do you guys think my dad should get a second opinion from another ENT? Please give me your honest opinion
