needing to find rural help
Well, it's been a long time since I have been active here. Almost coming up to my second post op mammogram in October. I'm feeling well and coping with the normal discomforts from surgery. However at present I'm down in NSW trying to help an elder sister who has just recently had a double mastectomy. She lives in country NSW at a place called Grenfell. While her treatment in hospital during surgery I believe was good, I'm disheartened to find the lack of help or support organised for her since returning home. Her husband was simply told to call homecare himself and when he did he felt more like an annoyance to the lady than anything else and the conversation ended with no outcome really. I'm wondering if any of you have experienced similar in rural areas, is it because I live in a city area that my post care was second to none? Is there something we as a family should be doing. somewhere where we should be calling to gain help for her?
