Hi, not been on here for few years when i was first DX with breast cancer in 2006, had surgery , 7 months chemo and 4 weeks rad therapy , been feeling un well for past year and keep going to my GP who was only intreasted in my high blood pressure then losing weight quickly from november and found lumps on my scar.Had appointment with onco for january 8th which was sent out by mistake as i had been discharge from there but i still went and told him and showed the lumps and being sent away as he said it was scar tissue! i managed to get the GP to refer me back to my breast surgeon 5 weeks ago and he said nothink to worry about but i push the issue and in the end had a biopsy done to told 4 weeks ago its Radium Induced Angiosarcoma. I was told that the Royal Marsden want to deal with this and was surpose to go back to my local hospital yesterday to get a up-date and result of my CT Scan and they phoned me yesterday morning to cancel it till next tuesday as they not herad from the Marsden yet. I am so angery and upset and feel like yet again im just a number as i was miss diagnosed in 2006 for a year.
Do i ring the Marsden and chase them up ? also i would like to talk to any one else who has this sort of cancer, i feel so alone . Thanks
