One thought just in case you have that 'coma' situation. You could have your own copy of your medical file at hand all the time, wherever you go, with a copy of all your tests and medical history, medications and dosage, and doctors contacts. Maybe you could ask your onco or one of the 'good' docs to write you a report regarding your treatments and PC related issues the ER doctors should be aware of.
Years ago, a friend of mine used to carry her medical file everywhere she went because she was afraid of ending up in the ER for gallblader emergency surgery. She needed the surgery but was afraid to schedule it because of a blood clotting issue and kept postponing it.
Keep up the good fight. You are one very strong lady. You manage to keep a wonderful sense of humor and you are an inspiration to this board.
