im also new to the group, my dad has been diagnosed with liver, kidney, lung and bone cancer, he in hospital really sick after going for a check up for an infection, I cant get my head around it and the hospital aren't giving us the family support we all need.
Im really sorry to hear your Dad is poorly. Ive been in similar situation when my Mum was ill and we as a family were getting hardly any information. Every time we visited it was always me asking questions , finding out if tests have been done and if so what the results were. The information was never freely given it was always after them being asked by me, sometimes the information was hard to get from them too!
Frustration beyond belief!
My advice... you are completely able to ask for an appointment with your Dads consultant to get an update on his situation and care. You can either ask at the the ward for them to call his/her secretary or get the number and call them yourself.
Also, as your Dad is going to be under the care of the oncology team there should be a carer support group liason officer ( or some such other name).
I had one visit me when my partner was in the hospital.
They are there to support the family of a patient, they are also a sort of go between who can advise you and possibly enable you to find things out.
Look into this, please dont give up, he is your family and you have a right to know all about his care.
Sending good wishes.
