After having a test redone as followup to radiation, the tumor is still active and there is now a new place of interest. The doctor basically told me good luck and he was removing himself from my care, that I would need to discuss with my PCP and Endocrinologist. I told him of complications I had post radiation and he dismissed them as not being issues. He made awkward jokes and talked to his resident and student a lot about their electronic record charting. I asked him of his recommendation for my outcome and he made up all kinds of random scenarios on why it didn't work. I feel like maybe he should have recommended a second opinion given my medical history, but honestly I think he could have cared less. I requested my records be sent back to my doctor and my doctor still has not received those... Not to mention, the results of my scan were on my portal before I ever had the opportunity to speak with him. So I had to wait a week stressing about the next steps only to be handed off.
