Just wondered how often is normal to see the oncologist. Husband has stage 4 colon cancer with mets to liver. Over the last 16 months he has had numerous hospital visits due to chemo complications, has had 2 colon operations, lesions burned from the liver, and is on his second round of chemo. But for some reason they are not scheduling him for dr visits,
just chemo treatments and blood work. When he was taking chemo the first round early 2010,
he saw his oncologist the day before every chemo visit. He asked the chemo lab, but they
didn't have an answer. Is there a certain point the chemo lab just takes over and he doesn't see the doctor? I don't know if I should call and ask the dr to see him, he seems to be handling chemo ok right now. Even after so many months of this roller coaster, we
still do not know how everything works or what to expect.
