Well my question now is...

Posted by cindyp on 5/11/00 at 11:35 (020218)

Now they want to send me to an orthopedist saying that is the person that would remove the tumor? Is that true? Or am I going to have to start yelling some more?

There are many different specialists that can remove tumors. My husband had an orthopadeic surgeon remove a neuroma in his foot. He could just as easily gone to a general surgeon, a foot surgeon, a neuro surgeon. Specialties overlap a great deal.

Just get someone to do something for you!!!. Enough is enough!!! Start demanding, start yelling.
