I truly hope you're all feeling well. I think of all of you every single day. Life is so busy to tell you that every day though Just know that someone does care ♡
Dr. Myers referred us to a local Doctor...Dr. Oyer....who said he has worked with Doctor Myers for 10 years but...... Doctor Oyer...Ann Barshinger Cancer Institute said he did not think he was the right doctor for Elgie. His bio says he specializes in prostate cancer but he said he specializes in ovarian and genetics. We don't want a doctor that does not want us. Dr. Oyer sent us to the local Dr. Brennan....Ann Barshinger Cancer Institute.
We ask Dr. Myers for another referral and he referred Elgie to doctor Ferrari at Rutgers due to not producing psa and cancer only in Elgie's bones. Anyone have experience with this Doc?
I am wondering if there is ever going to be another doctor who will order or approve the better scans, new testing, etc. and not try and tell us that the pet scan is better than the F18 or the future scans . Our local Oncologist would never order or approve the F18 scan and now there are better scans and better treatments. I have been told but I'm not sure if this is true that the insurance companies tell the doctors not to order the more expensive better scans. How do you get a doctor to do these scans, testing etc? After Dr. Myers..... you will all be our knowledge.....our local doctor stayed so much in the box and tried to convince us it was the best scan or watch and wait, etc. It's scary to start over again and possibly not get the best treatment available. I hope this is all understandable.
Most sincere good wishes for each of you and hugs too
