When I had breast cancer, there were a lot of things I had to follow up on my own, but the actual diagnosis and initial information was not one of them. I would call the office of whatever physician gave you the diagnosis and request the pathology report and schedule an appointment ASAP with that physician and/or ask for a referral to an oncologist. If that doesn't work, I would find an oncology department in a hospital, call them, explain the situation, and ask them to contact the physician who gave me the diagnosis. Sometimes doctors can get reports from other doctors quicker than we can. My GYN delivered the news to me by having the receptionist call me to come in for an appointment that afternoon. He sat down and explained the type of cancer I had, the status, what that meant, and then referred me to an oncologist (I ended up going for a second opinion and then going with my second opinion physician). Many women are not staged until after surgery. I was staged by the surgeon and oncologist before surgery, and then restaged after. Please call again tomorrow and let us know what happens. Nobody should have to sit around waiting for a phone call for an appointment when first diagnosed.
