Lightbulb Brain tumor removed Whats next?

10/29/2012 2 days severe headaches no other symptoms. Cat Scan Findings: Brain Tumor my breast cancer metastases,to my brain. Sent me to las vegas, on 11/4/2012 I had brain surgery, they removed 98% of the tumor from my brain. I spent few days in ICU. Went back had post op appt. everything looks good, I feel great.

Next step radiation. Where I live in Arizona, there is only 1 radiation oncologist Dr. First available consult appt is Dec 15. The same goes for other surronding cities. 1 dr.in area and very buzy no sooner appts available. Thats 6 weeks after my surgery, Supposed to start radiation 2 weeks after surgery.

All i can do is wait.... Well Friday night I found a lump on the left side of my neck, you can actually see it sticking out. I'm sure since didnt radiate right away whatever might have been left in brain now is spreading thru my system. so Which Dr, do I call General Dr., Cancer DR.? Surgeon?

Whats next or first?????

Im not sure what im looking for or what my questions are. But Friday was the first time I realized well, Im sure you know,,,


Thanks for listening.
