Very disappointed. We decided to seek chemo treatment locally so that we don't have to travel an hour away every day the other oncologist. The local oncologist recommended placement of the port and then do 5 days of chemo with radiation. Good thing I'm working closely with a caseworker for our health insurance. Monday, hubby's supposed to get his port put in and start chemo and radiation. We got the call after hours from our case worker that the the chemo order was rejected due to experimental and it was not standard. WTH!! Are you kidding me? We thought this was the standard way. Uggghhh...i'm so frustrated. I don't want to wait another week for treatment. I called the hospital to cancel his sugery appt for the port placement. Monday, we are having a BIG BIG talk again. This time we'll do the xeloda oral pills as recommended in the first place.
