    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My husband was diagnosed after an ultrasound. Had been complaining about his stomach. At first, we were told 'it's a mystery'. Then later told, liposarcoma. At the time, his coverage was through the VA. He was scheduled for surgery twice. First time, we were waiting to go into the operating room and then the surgeon entered his room saying the surgery had been cancelled. They were missing a part for the surgery! We were sent home. There was a second surgery scheduled, then cancelled. We were told his surgery had been disallowed. We were dropped from that VA facility.

    Decision Point

    We have a decision to make. Continue with the San Diego VA, or go private. We've been delayed with the VA until a surgery date of July 12. Private hospital says they can do it sooner. We're waiting on private too, however.....for a surgery date.
