Hi guys....UK based here.
Mum got diagnosed recently with 3c ovarian cancer - cancer is on the omentum and suspected from Ovaries which is awful news but at least treatable.
I have a question please. She was diagnosed on Thursday 5th April, then had her appointment with the consultant to confirm the findings on Monday 16th April when it was outlined that she would had 6 chemo treatments then probably surgery. She then met with the Oncologist on Thursday 24th who confirmed this and that she would be booked in for her first chemo session soon. Our concern is they delay from diagnosis until where were are today with the date still not confirmed. She is hoping it will start a week on Monday which will be Monday 7th May but she has been told that it may now be after that as she needs to sign some forms first!
So is a wait of over a month until chemo normal? I guess we are looking for some reassurance before we start kicking ass!
