5 yrs. ago I had a radical done with a bad outcome. I developed an infection that almost killed me. Thankfully they were able to fix that. Eveything was fine except that sex no longer was a possibility. 9 months ago my PSA jumped to 20 and it meant more visits to the Dr. A biopsy was done and I found out that the cancer returned. I was being seen and the conclusion after visits the conclusion was wait and see since the cancer didn't seem to be growing.
I have since lost my job and medical coverage. COBRA is too much money for me to afford and I make too much on unemployment to qualify for Medicaid. I have searched all over to see if there are any programs that would at least pay for the blood work & cat scan that is 3 months overdue. I've found none. If anyone knows of something in the New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia area I would appreciate any help.
