I am writing on behalf of my husband who has a large mass on his lower back. He has had an ultrasound and then an MRI which were both declared/came back as 'inconclusive'. Our primary GP (of whom I'm not a huge fan, I find him flaky and arrogant) insists that the mass does not have the markings of a tumor as it has 'no flow'. He told my husband he would refer him to a General Surgeon -- but today we found out he's being sent to q Dr. at Mount Sinai whom is a (I believe very well respected) oncologist in the sarcoma field. I'm actually relieved we are seeing an expert, but the initial consultation with Dr. is not for six weeks (!) Is this normal? Absolutely unacceptable? Should I be pushing my husband and the doctors harder to see him sooner? Should I trust that if it looked bad, they would fast track him? I honestly don't know. I expect time is everything with diagnosis and yet I don't want to jump ahead in line. Any advice most appreciated from someone just looking to be a good advocate, no matter what happens!
