After a million appointments and much preparation Glenn is getting ready to begin treatment.
They've decided on IMRT/Tomo bilateral neck and Carbo/Taxol x3. He was TxN2bMo. He's been to the dentist and had all teeth removed, PEG inserted last Wednesday. He'll start on Monday, 6/7.
He's looking forward to Radiation treatment being the only appointment he has in one day for awhile.
Had a minor insurance coverage scare Friday when they told our Rad/Onc people they were only going to cover the treatments at an Out-of-Network coverage rate. Wha??? But many calls later they told us it would be covered In-Network. The folks at the hospital told us the cost was going to be approx. 100K. so after I picked myself up off the floor and spent some time on the phone, we got it straightened out.
thanks for keeping Glenn in your prayers.
