    VA annual visit...and test results

    Please follow up with your VA for results of cancer screenings. Different cancer screenings are done on certain "milestone" ages.

    My husband (who is a Vietnam veteran) had his annual last month. Towards the appointment, the Dr asked him how his cancer treatments were going. What cancer treatments? The results of his blood work were put in his file last year without letting him know. It was at stage 3 last year and now it is a stage 4. We have a very aggressive plan of attack (outside of the VA).

    Again, Please follow up with your VA for results of cancer screenings.

    I am sorry for your husband's diagnosis. It is a good reminder for all to always follow up with medical providers after tests. Never assume that all is good if you don't hear from them.

    I wish both you and your husband well as you fight his cancer. May you both find added strength as you battle.

        That seems like extreme negligence. I would be livid. Hope you get a good attorney.
