If it’s not one thing….

I finally heard from my radiologist at Mayo that I am not in the 3 radiation treatment study after all.  My insurance won’t cover the study treatments.  Also, apparently I’m not a good candidate after all.  I’m wondering if the insurance issue didn’t cause them to go looking for a medical reason to give me as well.  So back to the 15 radiation treatments over 3 weeks.  Running out of time to get them in before the end of the year.  There are worse things I could hear, so I’m not getting too upset.

Think I’ll go for a walk.

  1. I'm so sorry you have to take the 15 treatments, but it might be best after all. The 3 treatment plan is a study, right? Meaning it isn't ready for the general public. I wish you success with the treatments. It is a damn crying shame that insurance companies can dictate our lives in the manner they do. And people criticize Fidel for bringing health care to all his people- I wish we could have socialized medical care available to everyone, and the wealthy would go to their own private specialists anyway.
