Muriel Posted October 17, 2007 Share Posted October 17, 2007 This has been a terrible two weeks or so. Finally however, I learned that I'm ok. I'm also so angry with the Onc and his office that I'm going to share the whole miserable story with you all. First, I had a routine PET scan on Oct.3rd (Wed). Expected the Onc to call me on Thurs. with the results.WRONG! Not a word from him until my appt. on Mon. the 8th. (Last time he called the following morning with the results.) He said that something in my R lung lit up, SUV = 2. Recent PETs had shown nothing at all. (The normal range is 4.xx to about 11 or something like that.) Anyway, he wanted me to have a CT to see what was there. Said it would be scheduled for that same week and the he would call me as soon as he got the results. By Tues. I hadn't been called for an appt. (that's the way they do it here), so I called and did manage to get one for Thurs am (the 11th). Had the scan and went home, expecting to hear from the Onc. on Friday morning. No call on Fri., Mon., or Tues. [being in a really bad mood, I decided I'd just wait and see how long it took him to make that "next day" phone call. Wed. at noon (11:50 in fact) I called his office. Explained (with a very nice attitude)that he had said he'd call as soon as he got the results. Well, he was with a patient at that moment. The receptionist told me she'd "tell Amy." No, I don't even know who Amy is. I should have started worrying right then. No call by the end of the day. Today about 1:00pm he called. Apologetic, as always. Said the CT scan didn't show ANYTHING. [Might be something there, but it's too small to show up on a CT.] Several (many?) people have asked if I'm looking for a new Onc. I think so.
