    Well I finally got my report from the second Oncologist. It took a phone call and two trips to Knoxville before I got them. They claimed it was faxed to my GP, but he never got it. He said I was a very angry person. I was intense and I was confrontational. He can not tell the difference between frustration and anger.I went there for a second opinion, but all he did was look at the report from Dr. Lee and agreed ...

      I have seen a second Oncologist. He was worst than the first one. He treated me as though I wanted to have Cancer. He first agreed with the first one and said it was a Infection. Then he saw the Scan that ruled out Infection, and still agreed with the first one. He did his blood work, changed his mind to Inflammation. It has been over 3 weeks and my GP still does not have his report. We were waiting in it to see what...

        I went to see my second Oncologist a couple of weeks ago. I only went back to get the results of the blood work he did. We could tell at my first visit that he did not seem to care. He would not give me a copy, but said he would mail me a copy and send my GP a copy. Seriously, after about 5 minutes, and not giving me any answers to my questions, he told me it was time for me to go. He said he had patients to see...

          He was a good Country Doc and retired as A Colonel in the Air Force Reserves. He was a flight surgeon. He had a lot of respect rom all of the doctors he would send me to. He died from Cancer, no one knew he had it, and he worked until the end. He refused treatment.

            They made it a big deal when they came up with the PSA test. Mine has always been normal, I am 61 and never have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. I have had friends that found out they had Prostate Cancer because of the PSA test. It is like everything else, you don't know what to believe. I had complete trust in my doctor of 31 years. Since he has passed away, I have no trust in any doctor....

              I asked you about the PSA test, because doctors now say that no man should ever have it done. They say all Cancer's should not be treated. I read that in Time Magazine at the doctors office. I Googled it, and most doctors agree. Now they say a woman should wait until 50 to get mammary test done. I try to share my experience with people I know. If you can have it, I had. I don't want Leukemia either, but something is ...

                I read published Scientific reliable information. I am sorry that you do not understand that everyone here believes in the methods you talk about. I do not understand why you want to argue about it. You gave me your thoughts, I read them and have moved on. If it has worked for you , that is wonderful. I don't know where you saw that I am doing so good. I am not doing good at all. I have finally talked my GP into doin...

                  I do not recall that I said  all doctors had all the answers. I believe that I said if a doctor can not answer my questions, I find one that can. I believe in eating right and I take supplements because I have Kidney Disease. Those supplements were ordered by a Nephrologist. My Cardiologist tells me to take Fish oil, which I do. It sounds like your husband would not be alive today if a a good surgeon did not do ...

                    Hey Susan, I talked to Cigna today. For some reason my new GP did not think he could order a bone marrow biopsy unless a Oncologist told him I needed to have it done. He had told me that the insurance would not pay for it. Cigna answered by email that it did not matter who ordered it, as long as they could prove it was medically necessary. I will have the results of more blood work by Tuesday. I have emailed him what...

                      What Susan said. Have you had Cancer? Have you seen your loved ones die of Cancer? Yes, there are doctors that are not the best, but it does not take long to figure them out. After two heart attacks, I was happy to put my life in the hands of the doctors. I would  have died in 2007 if I didn't. The first Cardiologist did not have a clue, so I went to someone that did. I research everything that any doctor t...
