Crikey! Christies wants to see me.

In shock. Christie are making me a clinic appt. thank you so much @Fighting4hubs for giving me the push to get second opinion after Basingstoke and @GD1962 for recommending Mr Aziz.
I know one shouldn’t say anything negative about other places but grateful for this vs the experience of ‘M3 Junc 7’ venue 😉😉
Eek! Off to Cotswolds for a week now. Love to all :x:

Thank you @Polly68 . Wonderful venue middle no where (not too far from the Churchill though!) and has massive trampoline perfect for my kids. We last went August when I had just re started folfirinox after stupid cancer came back. This trip will be full of hope :x::x:

How exciting @HH79

Interesting that you learned about this from the forum.....more patients will ask....more centres and specialists will have to get up to date.....more success stories!!

HH79

Hi @Lizalou I already knew about HIPEC before joining and was referred to Basingstoke last year. The forum gave me push to investigate second opinion after hearing couple of people get HIPEC elsewhere after a no from Basingstoke. There are more centres being set up at Birmingham and London, both surgeons started at Basingstoke. Thanks for kind words hope you’re well :x:

KatieR

Sorry to ask but is there somewhere on here where abbreviations can be deciphered ?

Baxter2

I’m not too sure @KatieR but I know this has been discussed before. If you type in ‘abbreviations’ into the search icon you will see previous posts which may help you. Is there a specific one you wanted to know? HIPEC?

K💚💜💙💛❤️

I’ve read a few that I don’t understand but I’ve plenty of time to catch up Thanks :x:
