Original uncertainty examples How people are treated by other specialties eg asthma/breathing clinic.  I am now seen by many other specialties, not directly related to my cancer and they almost never consider my years of treatment, side effects or psychological effects.  They focus exclusively on their area.  Also almost never read my notes. ~ A someone who supports those with Learning Difficulties in the community in the county in which I live, I would like to know what additional support is or can be provided to those with Learning Difficulties, pre and post diagnosis/treatment, to ensure that they can make their own fully informed decisions as far as possible about the treatment/support they receive. ~ How can improvement be made between oncology and urology teams for people with invasive bladder cancer eg stent changes and flexis after radiotherapy?
