Very good friend is a 5-year UPSC, Stage 2 survivor. She had both chemo and radiation. Now, at 5 years her insurance company says no more gyn oncologist, you can go back to regular gyn for exams and see the local general oncologist here on out. She has mixed feelings about this and will discuss it with her gyn next week. Both her gyn oncologist and medical oncologist (who only treats gyn cancers) just sort of shrugged their shoulders and offered that they knew the local oncologist and she is very good.
Any thoughts? Does this sound ok for UPSC patients? I expect (and look forward to) it for me.
