Dear Annie,

Read your post and felt like I wanted to give you a big hug as they don't seem to be helping you. Why don't you phone Ovacome in the morning to talk to the nurse to see what she says. Sending you a virtual hug, you are not alone we are here for you. Let us know how you get on xxxx

I would ring his secretary on Monday morning before appt to remind him to look at the scan. On Monday last when checking in for clinic, I told them at reception that I was waiting on result of scan and it was chased up before I saw the oncologist. As he is seeing you on Monday, he has a duty of care to look for that scan it has to be on the computer system in the hospital

Really can't understand why they couldn't help, you are obviously still under Onc for check-ups. I'm always told to contact them inbetween appts if necessary. Only went to GP this time because I thought it was gallstones. I can also ring specialist nurses anytime. Hope all well with scan. Refuse to leave hospital until they give you results, that's what I did and it worked!

Best wishes

Once when I saw my onc after having a scan, she didn't have the result, so she went off to CT to chase it up, If they know you've had a scan, they should make sure they get the result.

I asked will I phone before I come up on Monday , no need he probably won't have the print but will be able yo see it on the screen , my ong is very very good , because I'm off treatment since febuary he can not physically order me a drain , amazing eh , if I'm back on or he sees I need him he is able , this is what's wrong with nhs they each only do their jobs and are restricted when it comes to a helping hand , xx
