    Health insurance issue

    My side effects were so difficult to manage I couldn’t leave the house the second week of any treatment I had. I had bad cases of diarrhea. I didn’t get much sleep because I waited for the runs to the bathroom. Thankfully all treatments are hopefully behind me depending on the results of my Pet Scan scheduled for next week. The year was hard but worth it if we skated the cancer dragon. Praying for all of you reading this. Thanks
