ChristinaMarie Posted August 14, 2008 Share Posted August 14, 2008 I am really not sure which forum to post this in, so please feel free to tell me if this is not the right spot. We met with oncologist # 1 on Tuesday at an independent cancer center. While she was very nice, My husband really wants to go to the other cancer center here that is part of a hospital and university. The oncologist over there is very well renound and has written books on Lung cancer and well, I guess we are already attached to him. The kicker is that he is on vacation until Sept 2nd and we cannot get an appointment until Sept 9th (dont these guys know that cancer takes no breaks?!?! ) Anyway, we have a couple options. His bone biopsy is tomorrow so we would not even start treatment until next week if we went to onc #1. What would you do? Go with onc#1? Start with onc#1 then transfer to #2(they dont really prefer that incase onc #2 has a different plan of attack)? Or just hold off until September 9th? There is a "rumor" going around that onc#2 will return from vaca for a day on the 26th to see urgent patients (which my husband would be considered as) but she is not sure and told me to call her next week and see if she has more info about that. My husband is OK with waiting until Sept. 9th, however, I am not sure I am OK with it. I am scared its going to grow even more and pop up in a new place, although I am not really sure how the monster works. What would you do????
