Elaine Posted May 11, 2004 Share Posted May 11, 2004 Once at the drs, I thought I heard him use the term "salvage" for treatment. I swore I heard it, but he mumbled around when i asked. Well, I just looked it up and there is such a term. I have always known that medical people have their own "language/slang" and not all of it is pretty. However, this one is outrageous to me. It refers to second and beyond cancer treatments. What are we hunks of metal in junk yards? No wonder many Doctors, seem so distant . It's inhumane. Words DO matter. You bet they matter.
