It's the drug sensation - that's sweeping the nation....and the globe actually.
Well, interesting day at Infusion today...Sundance has finally been caught up in the Leucovorin "shortage."
The hospital has run out here in Texas as well...NCI or not. And they are not offering the Leucovorin pills that I've read some of you talk about....so I went without it today.
I'm being told that it should be a week or so; time will tell.
No doubt, that many of us will be "swept" up in this madness all across our nation and around the world, as well.
I talked to my technician today and the reason seems to be political; what else is new? Apparently, the drug companies want to create the shortage and now their plan is to INCREASE THE COST of Leucavorin, so look for an increase - it's coming to a mailbox near you.
Colocan opened a post about the upcoming shortage and I was talking about that article just minutes before I was informed that they were out and not part of my treatment today.
Ah, the Benjamins....who we won't float down the river to have some extra shackles in the wrong people's pockets. Who knew?
