After finishing 2 rounds of chemo & 22 radiation treatments, I had to wait 4 – 6 weeks to have surgery to remove the tumor. Dr. Frank Frassica, the Orthopedic Oncologist on my team recommended that Dr. Kristy Weber take over my case. At the time, I was very upset. I didn’t want a new Dr & having to explain everything I had endured to this point. But it ended up being a very good thing!
When Dr. Weber contacted me, she knew my case & what I had been through. I was very impressed! Her comment was … if my calculation is correct you are eligible for surgery on Tuesday, April 25th, will that work for you? I couldn’t believe it. I had battled at different times for appts, etc … so this was a breath of fresh air for me! Of course, I said YES!
Now I just had to get through 4 more weeks of no sickness, etc … it was difficult coming from an appt driven world to the “waiting” game. Extremely rough mentally & I was full of fear.
