Whinge

Well its been a month and finally my pathology has made it from one lab in Melbourne to another lab in Melbourne. Woo-friggin-Hoo!

I can't believe the delay. I still don't know if I am eligible for the trial. So needless to say I have not had any treatment yet either. My tumour feels like its getting bigger and the pain is relentless.

I am having a whinge I know but I am so over this waiting thing....

Oh, Louise, that is just ridiculous! I am so sorry that things are taking so long to get started. Is your doctor trying to help get things moving? I have found that in our situation with Shawn, things only happened when I was persistent and cranky.

Much love to you. I continue to think of you daily. Hugs.

Gah! You'd think when time may not be on your side that they would put a rush on these things. How very frustrating :( You definitely deserve to whine - please don't feel badly. Thinking of you! and hoping those doctors/lab techs/etc get their act together.

So typical of the Australian health system! Whinge away, where here to support you all the way.

So glad you posted you have been on my mind.

I am so sorry you are still waiting.
Seriously, speaking from experience, if you are not getting the treatment you are needing change Dr's. Max's first oncologist was pathetic he didn't do anything in a timely manner we felt like we ALWAYS waiting, then he saw a different oncologist at a different hospital and he was fantastic and so proactive. This is your body you are allowed to whinge!!
Hugs to you.
