- Sarcoma Tumor (GIST) – Need facts ASAP
Not me, but I am going along as a second pair of ears tomorrow afternoon. Due to dreadful (non existent) comms from the referring hospital and denial from the sufferer I am now trying to get facts ASAP so I can ask the right questions and listen well
Can anyone point me at decent sources of info, specifically ‘measures’, stages, complications, different/likely treatments. Wiki gave me an overview. Macmillan some generic info about Cancer, but I feel like I need more info
I know Bullheart went through Sarcoma, but I cant find the thread 🙁 I am also sure there is some good info in there, but need to drill down to detail facts quickly and may not have time to read the whole thread

Have a look at the following for an overview of GIST and the treatment available for it:Posted 7 years ago
This is all good stuff and much better than my google research so far.
Thanks for all your help so far.
…and do try to relax a bit. Cancers don’t grow overnight and the treatments for said cancers don’t happen in the time it takes to stamp your feet.

Very valid point. Apparently my input is important because I seem “calm and confident”. I am obviously a better actor/poker player than I thought
Sorry for the slow response, it’s been a bit hectic for the last 24 hours
As before, the links posted were great and invaluable to me when we saw the consultants. I don’t want to post too much detail on here, but the outcome (so far) is very positive and we both feel relieved that we have a confirmed diagnosis and a comprehensive plan for the future.
Bullheart; Thanks for getting in touch, you have mail
