    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I found the diagnostic process very frustrating. Everyone was nice but I was dependent on some doctor's or some department's schedule and had to be my own strong advocate and push hard to get things done in a timely manner. Still, it was 4 weeks from the first biopsy results until I had surgery and found out that the sentinnel lymph node was positive. That changed the whole plan. I have been less than happy with the process. Now am still pushing to get integrative oncology treatment without having to figure it out all on my own.
