"After care oncology"

About: Pilgrim Hospital

Anything else?

Had to go for a second opinion on ovarian cancer as hospital did not do follow up blood testing and CT scans even though had been recommended by second hospital. Have now to go to London if I want a CT scan for my cancer which I consider to be unacceptable as I only asked for one every 6 months but Pilgrim could not follow through - funding perhaps? How come other hospitals can do this but not Boston please consider I am fighting for my life here and need all the help I can get.
