Three years ago I was diagnosed with cancer on the outer wall of the vagina. This was the result of pre-cancerous cells found when I had a hysterectomy and not all were removed. My treatment with the many individual consultants I have seen has been caring, thorough and excellent. My criticism is that each doctor is an expert in his/her field, but there is no continuity - every time I see a different Doctor I am asked who I last saw and what they said.
I had 7 weeks of radiotherapy, which destroyed the cancer but unfortunately affected my bladder, bowel and now my kidneys and I await an operation.
I have a friend in Australia with terminal cancer. Every time she sees a consultant she is given a report on what has been said. If she has an x-ray, she gets the result immediately. I wish this happened in our hospitals!
