We were asked this question a few times. Which date do you use to answer this question?
Is it when you first heard that there was a tumour in your body from CT scan when you went to the emergency (3/8/11 in our case)?
Is it when they confirmed it's likely to be something bad from MRI scan (5/8/11)?
Is it when you had the surgery (8/8/11)?
Or... is it when you were confirmed about the pathology result from the surgery before they discharged you (11/8/11)?
I know they are all bad but just curious.
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.
