Thank you mb57. Let us know if you contact your Palliative care team and how it goes for you. Sending best wishes.
I 100% agree with your decision to keep your anxiety at bay. That is a difficult task for all of us. May I ask, what was your opinion of the Liquid Biopsy. Now that it is almost a year later, would you do it again? I haven’t had that option yet so I would love to hear your thoughts.
What you have stated is so very true. My wonderful husband has been diagnosed recently with Lung Cancer Stage IV. It has truly been a roller coaster for him and me. At present, we are coping. Thank you,
I needed to read the words that you wrote. At times, I feel quite alone. Prayer has helped. I realize without hope and faith for me and…
So glad that so far so good for your partner with Imfinzi.
One of our advocates wrote about her experience receiving financial help for her immunotherapy here that may be of help: https://lungcancer.net/living/insurance-agony/
As Donna suggested, your doctor may be able to help as well.
Thank you so much for sharing @arcee980! – Margot, LungCancer.net Team
I never think that I HAD cancer even though it’s been 13 1/2 years. I’m diligent about scans, etc. so I totally agree with you!
I am so happy to hear that your partner is doing so well on Imfinzi! That’s GREAT news!!!
I was in a clinical trial for 4 years. My insurance company only had to pay for “standard of care” treatment. It didn’t have to pay for the nivolumab.
Hi. I’m so happy to see that you are experiencing some positive results!
My partner was diagnosed with Stage IIIb last Nov. and has been on Imfinzi for 4 months. So far, so good.
My question is: Her insurance will cover one year. Could you share your experience with cost issues surrounding a four year treatment?
Must take a CT Scan to find out the truth that you have cancer. Mine was Lung Cancer. An x-ray won’t pick up the tumors or nodules. The more active you are for your health, the better off you’ll be.
My siliva glads are inflamed causing very bad breath. I feel like my siliva is poisonous.
