REBLOG: Why try veganism

Published October 22, 2018 by lynn k scott

Reblogged from Tailored By Megan Taylor.  She puts veganism in perspective and makes some great points without being a “pushy vegan”.

Tailored By Megan Taylor

It’s impossible to ignore the ever-growing popularity of veganism/a plant-based life style. Whether it’s something you’ve tried or are considering trying, there’s so much that we can learn and benefit from when taking on or even just trying veganism. Whether it’s educating yourself on the environmental benefits of veganism, or just creating a vegan version of your favourite (generally un-vegan) meal, there are loads of ways to encourage yourself to make a little change.

Whilst there are so many vegan activists who claim that everyone must become vegan overnight, and whilst to some extent I do think that plant-based living is the way forward, there is no denying that a little change can go a long way. Eating plant-based a couple of days each week for example, or switching to dairy free alternatives in your home,  if every person were to do just one of those things, the effects would…

Kicked out of Sutter Oncology/Hematology

Published October 12, 2018 by lynn k scott

I just learned today, after following up, again, on an oncology referral, that I have been dismissed from Sutter Health Oncology/Hematology. I never received the original dismissal from my first oncologist. Apparently, after I saw my PCP for another referral, because my existing oncologist was bought out by John Muir (which they failed to advise), I was blackballed by Sutter.  I only learned of this today, over the phone that I am not allowed to see any doctor in oncology/hematolgy.

Sutter is refusing to treat a stage 3 colon cancer patient because I couldn’t understand my Russian-born oncologist. They are collecting premiums and denying care.  I went through the steps of seeing a PCP for a referral for an established disease that Sutter knew of for the previous 10-months.  Sutter told me I had to do this to see another oncologist and they knew full well I couldn’t be seen by anyone in Sutter who could treat my cancer.

My only option is to my PCP or go to urgent care; neither of which can treat my disease.  I can go to the Emergency Room but they can’t refer me to an oncologist, whom I’d have to see for follow-up care.  I am only allowed to see someone out of network and they have no one for me to see.

I am allowed to choose my doctor. It is not out of the norm for a female patient to want a female doctor. Based on the medical terminology, it is not out of the norm to insist on a doctor whom I can understand, without the aid of her staff.

Have I been challenging? Yes! Have I been rude and sworn? Yes. Why? Because I, ME, am in charge of my care. I, ALONE, determine my treatment!!!!

Doctors take an oath to treat patients. Yet, they pick and choose who they will care for. The ones who blindly go along with their godlike mentality are their preferred patients. How dare the patient question them? I am the one living and battling cancer – NOT THEM!

Please share this. Let the world know how cancer patients in Northern California are being treated.

Some sound advice.  Having to ask for help isn’t something we are taught to do; esp. if when you are fiercely independent.  Cancer changes all of that!

So when someone tells you they have cancer, how do you react? Are you shocked? What do you say? My brother-in-law shared an article which was written in the Globe today about this very topic. I had actually looked at similar articles earlier in January when I found out I had cancer because I […]
