    WHERE do we even start ?

    We have seen there different Doctors. And We only get told, YOU need to see a different Doctor. But come back here in two weeks. ONLY had one C.T of head and neck( At my request). And one blood draw. ( Also at my request). IT is as if i am the Treating Doctor. My Medical ( Team). Does NOT have Communications with each other ...

      That is crazy. Tell them they all need to get on the same page. Or find a new team. Which is hard. Then you have to start all over again. I'm sorry to hear you are going through this. Maybe talk to your general doctor and get things going.

      Do you have an option as to treating facilities? Ineptitude can cost a life. I would strongly consider switching to another facility that is both cutting edge as to head and neck cancer, as well as patient oriented.

      During my journey, I dumped my primary physician as well as the oncologist. Never looked back.

      I agree with PO18guy. Sounds like you need a 2nd opinion & different treatment center.
