I had a drs. appt today and instead of getting referred to some where for treatment this dr. told me we might have to wait two months and get two more x rays showing the cancer growing before i can get help. why when u are told to catch this early for a better survival rate??????
I have never heard something so crazy,,I'm sure you have medical insurance,you need to call their customer service line and tell them you want to talk to a patient advocate,,Tell them what this Dr said to you,,I would be scared to death,,You should never delay treatment,,get on this ASAP,,,best of luck :)
