My sister has gone home and it’s back to the real world for me. Went to see my Oncologist on Wednesday for my monthly meeting and found out that my tumor markers went up significantly. That’s the bad news. The good news is that finally my oncologists got paid for the drug Avastin which was initially called for in my treatment but which had been withheld due to non payment by my medical insurer. I did very well when on that drug before so I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I will improve after getting the prescribed drug.
Note for all of you – we must be our own advocate along with our support people to make sure we get the best and most effective care that we need in order to live. Ask the questions and make sure you get the answers that you need to have some sort of peace of mind.
I’ve been fighting this battle for 4 years. If I can be of any help to any of you out there please contact me.
