Recently my Wife Dorothy was told to attend freeman hospital for Brachytherapy treatment. Taking in to account her c.o.p.d. asthma, heart failure and she has diabetes2. Diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus dec 2016.
The brachytherapy did not happen and she was told will get her back in hospital soon to put another stent in instead as has growth over top of first stent!. She just feels let down that no radiology was done!. She was told it would be done in the future!.
Can't fault medical staff they were great with Dorothy. But though this is a risk to her quality of life if done she wanted to get cancer in some kind of control with brachytherapy radiation internally next to tumour.
Anyone had similar experience!
