Indepentent Radioligist? Do they Exist? Have you had a similiar situation?

If you've read my bio you've learned my 67 year old mother has been suffering in pain as pancreatic cancer cells invade her liver and spread to her bones and lungs... all while seeking to find the cause of her pain for the past 10 months. We just learned on the 6th of this month at IU Health in Indianapolis that she has stage IV Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma and three blood clots: in her splenic vein, (L) renal vein thrombosis, and (L) ovarian vein thrombosis after a CT Abdomen and Pelvis W/ IV Contrast. She has a CT Abdomen and Pelvis W/ IV Contrast done in South Bend at the end of February of this year and a MRI done at the end of April and a pelvic and Transvaginal Ultrasound, Colonoscopy, Upper Endoscopy, plus, countless blood test and a cystourethroscopy, plus more tests and scans that I am still trying to grasp still.


My question is… do any of those images she had done from December 17 to May of 18 show pancreatic cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, cancer in her bones, etc.?


I know pancreatic cancer is fast acting… but my mom has had severe cramping, 30 pounds of unexplained weight loss (she now weighs 95 pounds) and diarrhea for months. She hasn’t been put on a pain pill until recently after she was diagnosed. For months she has been battling cancer alone – he doctors (dozens) said all looks good – you are health – but that was far from the case.


I have all the images and all the reports failing to note any of the true facts – besides the last factual truth from IU Health.


I am looking to see if anyone else wondered the same and was able to hire a good independent radiologist to examine you loved one’s images?

Helpful feedback will be greatly appreciated.
