Topic: Finally heard about Avastin
Hello dear ones,
I am on my way in to get a drain. I look like I have triplets - that's how big my tummy is.
This morning the doctor's office called and said the Avastin had finally been approved and would be in next week. Anthem Blue Cross denied it three times so the doctor finally went through the drug company and compassionate use, and they are going to supply it. The hope is that this Avastin will control my ascites which is quite bad. I pray that this works. I have gone for weeks without chemo getting only the drains so I am weak lots of times. As Jeff says, take it to the limit one more time so maybe I should.
I also wanted to let those of you who keep getting turned down for something know that your doctor can always call the drug company and request compassionate use.
My prayers and love to you all,
