    Ideally, you should be able to request a consultation/second opinion through your own doctors'; and arrange to have your records sent, ASAP.
    They should be as interested in investigating all available treatment options as you are. If not, insist.
    It is not an insult to your doctors, or the system, to do so.

    New discoveries are being made every day.
    Sometimes, it takes an "empowered patient" to gain access to them.

    Good morning Jesse, I hope you totally enjoyed your home visit!! Did you smuggle Porki back with you? If she were with you all the time ("Of course she's a certified therapy dog, sir! She is here to work!") I bet those nurses would come around a lot more to see you (her)!

    When I got my diagnosis last year, I was encouraged by my own doctor to get a second opinion. I got the impression that it's SOP in the world of cancer diagnostics.

    On days when I had zero energy & could literally only lay on the couch, I enjoyed videos like this:

    This one plays for over an hour so I'd just open it up & let it go.

    I hope your day is pain free and restful!

    Happy for you that you got to get away from the hospital for a day and spend some time with your family. I hope you're feeling better today.
    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

    How did your transfer back to the hospital go yesterday Spaz? And how are you so far today?

    Didn't smuggle Porki back, haha. And unfortunately I can't really watch videos or do much online here because I'm just on my limited 3g internet stick.
    The transfer back was good... at 10:30pm the nurse was calling my house wondering if I was coming back lol. My brother and my uncle lifted me into the truck and back into my bed and such instead of using the sling when I got here which was much easier... if only I always had people to lift me it would be fine! Today is going well so far... will probably try to go home again after I shower and get all ready for my big birthday party tomorrow!

    Oh my that Porki could steal anyone's heart - how adorable.

    You're in my thoughts and I hope things improve for you at the hospital. I know many of the hospitals are short staffed and that medical professionals often have too heavy workloads, but I hate to think of your needing help and it taking so long.

    Just catching up on FSU. So sorry to hear about all your troubles sleeping and more importantly, getting the care you deserve. It's so frustrating. I hope things look up for you today. Sounds like there are some AB posters that can help you figure out how to navigate the health system there.

    On a happier note, so glad you were able to make it home for a bit. AND I finally saw Porki's pictures!! OMG, there are no words to describe how adorable your dog is .. almost as cute as my cat! Sounds like she brings you as much joy as my pets do me. Hope you have a wonderful day at home tomorrow!!
