Had hospital appt with oncologist-no contact since last November-long story. Had X-ray first then saw 'God' he showed me the x Ray & I had to ask him to explain as I don't read x-Rays. He then indicated the left lung & said that it had collapsed. 'No' says I. Although not experienced with lung collapse I knew I had no such symptoms. He then sounded my chest & retracted(I really wanted say 'Have another guess, go on) He then said that it was maybe fluid on the lung, but offered no treatment or solution and I was then shown the door with an admonition to come back at any time. 'for what? I asked myself. In the hall I debated going back to ask if there was any treatment, but decided against as I wouldn't want him touching me with a barge pole. I found it quite distressing to be told I had a collapsed lung even though my common sense kicked in immediately. Am considering reporting him for incompetence, but wouldn't know where to start & wonder if there is any point as these consultants seem to have ultimate power & numerous get out of jail free cards. I am thankful that I am using alternative therapies & am not dependant on this div. I do wonder if this is where the problem starts, because when you refuse their treatment you seem to be pushed off the edge of the cliff & they are completely uninterested in any success that alternative treatments achieve. The only reason I went in the first place was to see if I would qualify for any immunotherapy trials, but Gunga Din said that chemotherapy has to be a first treatment before I would be considered for a trial. I really had little faith in anything that he said & think I will stick with my alternative treatments & the two doctors that I do have faith in.
