Grecian Posted October 20, 2014 Share Posted October 20, 2014 Well it looks like I have bowel cancer, still trying to come to terms with the whole horrible scenario and must say the whole things is like living a nightmare.Must try and stay positive although hard, I guess things will sink-in, in due course. What I really would like is feedback and information as to how the whole process of cancer treatment works here in France. To date I have an appointment for a sigmoidoscopy on Wednesday, which has only been a wait of a week, but today received my appointments for a CT scan and MRI on the 14th and 21st November respectively, which considering we are meant to have the best healthcare system in the world seems a long wait. No point really comparing waiting times in other parts of France, but maybe Deux Sevres is a bit slow in this situation. Could anybody tell me what happens after the test results are received, and how long I can expect to wait for an operation? Being seriously ill in a foreign language is not the ideal situation, although I have contacted the English cancer support group in Deux Sevres and they said if I require a person to come with us to see the specialist for translation purposes, they will be happy to help, that's something I guess.Would really appreciate any feedback from anybody who has been through the same situation.
