Yesterday my dad went to see the oncologist. I sent my mom with questions and the #1 was about the Herceptin. She dismissed it saying it wasn't covered and so on. So, by chance, do you have any phone numbers or anything I can use to give back to the Dr. The 1st hurrdle is going to be getting her to test the tumor to see if he can even use it. So, any advice you can give I'd greatly appreicate it. I think this Dr. is going to be a real pain. This Dr. seems to be the kind that wants things her way and that's it. I let my parents go alone, I'm regretting that now. I can be a lot more forceful than my mother. My dad is really depressed now. She walked in and told them they were in trouble. What the hell is that!! Sorry for swearing, but had I been there, we would have corrected that wording. We know he's in trouble, but if she's not positive, he'll give up. I hate this cancer!! Also, the Xeloda, she says no since he's not swallowing well because it's a large pill. Anyway, if you can let me know about phone numbers or how your Dr. was able to get it paid for please let me know. Then, I'll force the biopsy issue. This way I'll have reinforcement with it being covered. Thanks!!! GOD bless!!
