Today I spoke to my doctor... she can't get me into surgery for them to put in my 'port' until the 20th of February. I was diagnosed with the secondary cancer almost a month ago, it's in my lungs, my chest, my abdomen. I still can't believe I have to wait so long for everything. You'd think once they'd made a cancer diagnosis being quick would be their first priority..but no, I've never experienced such long waiting times in my life. The doctor even said sorry to me and told me that she would've liked my treatment to start a lot sooner... It makes no sense to me. Not much makes sense anymore.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
