Hi Sweet Pea,
I'm in Scotland.
There are Maggie's Centre's all over the UK, They specialise in advice, support to both Cancer patients and their families.
I'm still waiting for the green light from my Consultant to be allowed to undergo Acupuncture, so am like a coiled spring just now. In the meantime, I think I'll take the opportunity of going along to the centre and trying out some of the other activities, if nothing else to focus my mind and to try and keep things in some kind of perspective.
I really hope you get a date to start your treatment very soon, at least then you will feel that something positive is going on, and I hope you get the answers from your Consultant you require, especially with regards to PET Scan or not etc.
I've included a link to the Maggies Centres website so you can see for yourself,
Stay strong, well & focused,
