I have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer and now found that it has progressed to my brain. I am at the moment mentally strong and believe with positive attitude we can beat this or at least extend the inevitable. Last Thursday (08/10/15) I saw the doctor and they said that my radio therapy would start this week. Having not heard anything this morning (12/1/15) I contacted the radio therapy department and was told in no uncertain terms that the doctor had not got the authority to tell me when my treatment would start. Please some one tell me that it is not just pot luck when treatment starts, or a first come first serve basis surely it is a severity rating. As I understand I'm family well down the road and need urgent intervention as the term palliative was used. Also being self employed I postponed all my work for this week and if I don't work I don't get paid, also people have booked time off work to transport me to and from these alleged appointments.
