Just curious how many of you got rid of your first oncologist? My mom is at her wits end with hers. She had a set back about a week after her last chemotherapy treatment and had to be hospitalizes with severe clots in her leg. She was in the hospital for a week and a half and is currently at the hospital closer to our home doing rehab to get her leg strength back. For 3 weeks now she has been unable to get chemo. The doctors at this hospital have been trying to reach out to her oncologist ( who is affiliated with another hospital) His office or staff have not returned any calls. The entire time she was in the hospital she was receiving her chemotherapy treatments at she did not see him once. I know doctors have a lot on their plate but in 3 weeks for him to not even check in or return a phone call has my blood boiling.
