Olivia Posted August 30, 2020 Share Posted August 30, 2020 Something that has been bugging me...my dad recently got a new oncologist, who he really enjoys. She is very sweet, smart and is not all doom and gloom. However, her attending oncologist who signs off on everything, might as well just tell my dad to throw in the towel now. He always reminds my dad that this probably won’t end well and gives absolutely no hope for him. So at last week’s appointment, my dad kindly asked that he sees a new attending onc who gives him a little more hope. I understand not wanting to sugar coat this disease, but how is anyone supposed to have a fighting chance if their doctor doesn’t give them any hope? Does anyone have any experience with this? I’m hoping the new doctor is less harsh and gives us some hope and won’t give up on my dad. Tom Galli 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
