So, I'm packing up my chemo, colostomy and myself and bon voyage! I'm heading to Vegas for a week, followed by a week in Montana. Needless to say, I'm super excited. I already have my tickets to "O", zoomanity and Celine Dion (like all good Quebecers, I have to see Celine!)! And the week in Montana is actually a completely free vacation sponsored by a cancer foundation, so that's pretty neat. The only thing is that I'm really nervous. What if something happens out there? I'm insisting on a premature administration of oxaliplatin before I go and I'll be on Xeloda for the two weeks I'm away. What if I get sick? Does insurance cover a pre-existing condition if I have a medical certificate declaring that I'm fit to travel? I really need some feedback/reassurance/advice. I'm almost considering not going, which would absolutely crush my spirits and be a complete waste of a lot of money! Thanks guys.
