In...out....and shake it all about.....
Having had his PICC line taken out a couple of weeks ago ready for a liver resection 5 March (6 week gap needed after chemo) we were back today for C to have another line put in ?
We have had a very hard couple of weeks trying to organise things between 4 hospitals (scans, chemo, liver and lung). Long story but has ended with chemo timetabled to start again a week tomorrow. As its Folfiri/Cetuximab in order not to lose NHS funding he needed to go back on it within 6 weeks - it will be 4 weeks next Wednesday.
Once back on it there must be another 6 week gap before any liver resection
C rang the oncologist's secretary this morning to bring them up to date in case they didnt know we were still waiting for 'urgent' lung CT and now liver MRI. As soon as he heard that there was a chance both the resections might not go ahead in the 6 week gap the oncologist immediately ordered the picc/chemo.
At the moment looking at the last lung CT he had in November and the recent liver CT they cant see any lesions. Thats why they need an up to date lung CT and now liver MRI to double check.
Without operations the oncologist wants C back on Cetuximab so needed to act quickly. All a bit of a shock to us as well as the liver nurse when C rang to tell her.
I dont understand why these hospitals dont seem to talk to each other!
