Hi Fay, I think this is the new way forward in communication as I had a similar experience. I was told I had cancer over the phone. I have to co-ordinate all my appointments as GPs don't nor do oncologists. Like you it seems treatment is wait and see post-surgery. I've had enlarged lymph nodes that they say are reactive to the scan. It seems there are so many people with cancer you're lucky to get any kind of support, follow-up that you haven't instigated yourself. Don't let this upset you, just be your own health advocate and read up as much as you can on your cancer, pull questions together, demand appointments with specialists via your GP and find a support group for your cancer! Call the Cancer Council for info and ask them to enrol you in the Enrich program. Big hugs, we can get through this, or live with this, we have to!
