my mum’s oncologist saw her today for a 6 week post treatment follow-up. He examined her and said he was ‘cautiously optimistic’ and couldn’t see any tumour and could only see ‘after effects of radiotherapy’. We will take the small wins where we can find them and have eaten celebratory cake tonight!
i had a small question... (or actually a couple of them). Her 3 month MRI is mid-May but the oncologist has said he doesn’t need to see her again until 1st July. Is this normal? I assumed they’d get her in pretty much straight after the scan to discuss the results?
Also, he said if they call her to come in earlier than 1st July it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad news. We are finding that hard to believe. Has anyone else been in a situation where they’ve been called in earlier than scheduled for their treatment results and it hasn’t been bad news to some extent?
Thank you :)
