had ron's oncologist fax in an order for the mugard, they said if insurance wouldnt cover it it would be about $1500 for a months supply!
well, was told my insurance wouldnt cover it. so gave up on it.
got a call today from mugard rep. they are sending a months supply to rons oncologist in his name, no charge. told
me that when he gets to the last bottle , have the dr fax in the enclosed form and they will send another month of samples for
I feel lucky.
on the other hand, ron has soooo much fatigue I drove up and met him with a friend and we drove him home, he is out on disbility now.
week 1 not even finished and he is out of it and exhausted.
oncologist said normal and will see him on monday for labs, before chemo.
I told them to look at the last lab ranges prior to 1st chemo, he was low on potassium and all the ranges were barely registing a normal.
they might have to give him potassium and magnesium IV on monday along with the 4 and 1/2 hour chemo.
35 more rads to go and 8 more chemos.
trying to stay positive and keep plugging along to keep up on daily life and keep him comfortable.
It is exhausting.
BUT, at least he will get the mugard that ya'll recommended.
hope it helps some.
