Hi everyone, Thanks for all your shared experiences, information and support! Its been really helpful xxx Pam, so sorry to hear about your fall, but thanks for sharing, its a good example of how nothing is 100% certain. Thanks very much for your suggestions about the scan reports too - thankfully I did get that tip a few months ago and have insisted on having copies of everything now and it has made my life so much easier! I completely agree with you that knowledge is power. I actually found so many inconsistencies in my scan reports that I was able to feed this back into my complaint. What you said about each Radiologist interpreting each scan differently and the language they use is totally true - my GP even said that some of the scan results were written very poorly and its a wonder my Oncologist was able to determine anything! So for now, I will wait and see what reply I get. What I've learned from this whole experience is that Radiology and Oncology aren't exact sciences - sometimes they can't really tell from scans what is going on and are relying on me to tell them about any symptoms I have, so they can make educated guesses. I got to the point where I said to my mum the other day that it wouldn't surprise me if the Oncolgist turned around after my next scan and told me they had gotten something wrong!
