Don't make me throw medicine away

I currently have metastatic leiomyosarcoma.  I have been on Votrient 800mg, for the past several months.  My doctor just stopped it, one day before receiving a 30 day supply.  My pharmacy says I can send it back and they will destroy it!  That is $10,000 worth of medication.  I remember the tears and stress I went through while trying to get my insurance company to approve it.  And now they want to throw it away!!!!!

My journey to now

A little over 5 years ago, I was diagnosed with a right side, Tonsillar tumour which was eventually diagnosed as Squamous cell carcinoma. It was Stage 4 and had metastisized and was malignant. It started with a very small skin cancer on the side of my neck (oh those many sunburns) that went unnoticed until it began itching in that tiny spot repeatedly for a couple of years. I ignored it until the tumour appeared and swallowing became noticably difficult. A hard lump presented itself at the base of my tongue and I could actually see it and touch it.

Double cancer surviver

In 2004 I was involved in an auto accident. During an x-ray of my back a spot was found on my lung which turned out to be an Carcinoid Lung tumor stage I. They performed a wedge resection that made me very week. Only 3 weeks after lung surgery I was sitting in the shower and felt a lump on my left upper inside thigh. I immediately went to my GYN. On first exam he thought it was just a barthala gland cyst but agreed to remove it because of my family history and help relieve my concerns. During my post surgery office visit a nurse received and brought in my biopsy report.
