Raven, I've been following your experiences and just wanted to share that unfortunately as you've found, some doctors are absolutely wonderful and others don't seem to actually care about their patients who are the most scared and vulnerable. Some seem like they only care about being right and beating another doctor/practice w/patients caught in the middle. I had a bad experience many yrs ago w/an oncologist who I only went to for a consult & who gave me false and incomplete information on my type of breast cancer and contrary to what my surgeon told me that chemo was not needed. I found the full paper online that he quoted and it specifically said my type of cancer did not require chemo, but he stopped reading the quote once he got to that part! I don't think he even knew what type of cancer I had. He spoke very arrogantly, not kindly, only caring to be proven right & not about me as a patient as he gave me a dismissive one-size-fits-all prognosis & treatment & didn't even really read my pathology report. He wanted to be in a p*ssing contest with the other doctors/hospital. I did not choose him as an oncologist & went elsewhere. I don't meant to compare my experience to yours but just wanted to say I understand how difficult it is sometimes to navigate the medical system and how big a difference the right doctor makes. I hope you get the help you need from your wonderful doctor. THANK YOU for opening up eyes about angiosarcoma. Do not give up, you are an inspiration to MANY.
