deruo Posted September 10, 2004 Share Posted September 10, 2004 Sorry for xposting this here and in the general area.... Very briefly, this is what the situation is - My mom has been diagnosed with SCLC (yesterday) The only facility that we can get into says that it may be another week or TWO to see an oncologist. All we have at this point is a diagnosis. I don't want to wait 2 weeks and frankly, with the coughing she's been doing, I don't think it's a good idea - her breathing is getting worse. I've asked to be referred to a major cancer hospital in Toronto, but was told that it would probably be faster sticking with the referral we've already got. At this point, we're willing to pack up a wheel barrow of cash and head to the States to get her seen by specialists there - but who? Where? Do you need a referral in the States for everything like it seems you need here in Canada? We hear rumblings that as long as you can pay, you'll be seen "right away". Can ANYONE suggest what we should do? We're in southern Ontario, panicking, frustrated and willing to travel. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
