I haven't been on here for a while. Will give a brief outline of history.
Dad dx nsclc squamous cell stage 3b feb 2012
Chemo and radio April 2012
Tumour shrunk sep 2012
Tumour began growing April 2013
Chemo October 2013
January 2014 collapsed lung- no help for this available
Jan 2014 Scan showed slight progression dad chose to watch and wait instead of treatment.
Next onc appointment next week. As no scan appointment was received dad rang to find out why and was told no scan needed this time if dad was feeling ok!!!!!
This seems totally wrong? My dad will still see onc next week just for him to talk to my dad but how are they going to know anything? Why no scan? He could wait longer and the tumour be too big to treat?!
He has always had scans every 3 months since dx
