Today, after over a week of multiple daily "battles" with our insurance co., pointing out that the more time I spend on wasted calls to "approved" surgeons who are no longer there, who have lost privileges, who don't do breast work any longer, etc., etc. and after explaining that time is truly of the essence in my case.. I have learned that they WILL pay for my surgeon and plastic surgeon. The surgery was to be last Friday but was cancelled by the insurance.
Meanwhile, I've been counselled to terminate the pregnancy due to urgency here. That was tough. Very. I have now accepted this and know she'll come back to us at a better time. In fact, the pregnancy and other things resulting from it have convinced me that I want to take chemo. Cannot shake a stick at a 33% increase in survivor rate!
Meanwhile, we meet my new (highly rated) oncologist on Monday!
Thanks to all for support! It's been rough but it is getting better!!!
