I wonder sometimes if it was a loved one or a spouse of the oncologist that is treating my wife with her cancer, would they recomend the same treatment for them? I wonder sometimes if he is doing everything he can to get rid of her cancer. Or if he just follows textbook procedures? Would he do more if it was his wife?
Does anyone else ever feel this way? Am I wrong to think like that? All I know is for a week in the hospital and four chemo treatments followed by a nulasta shot, it has cost almost 90,000 dollars. It sometimes feel like she is a cash cow for the Dr. and his staff. Why would they want to find a cure for this beast when it is so profitable?
Please excuse my rant, I get frustrated sometimes.
