      @Molly72, my thought, too! I was expecting a photo of a cat! Birdwatcher2363, not laughing at your situation, but at the images your question called up.

      Yea, meyati, pet peeves are a good subject, but maybe we shouldn't get started!

      I focused on pet projects in my comment... We all were wondering what type of pet she is talking about. It sounds as though she is thinking of a pet scan. I focused on mostly 1,500 to 2,000 piece jigsaw puzzles. They kept me sane. Then I went to treatment and worked on their jigsaw puzzles out in the waiting room. I think this should clarify what I said---.

      Birdwatcher's message said "my first pet" and then "lady"
      A common name for a pet is Lady.

      Since Birdwatcher has never replied to our questions, I guess we will never know the answer.
      We are not making light of the question, Birdwatcher, we try to have a little fun here!

      Maybe she was describing herself as a lady-as you say-- we might not ever know. I think that it can be hard to connect and feel somewhat satisfied with a group. It took me about 6 months or so to develop connections and friendships-- then they sort of drift in or out depending on how I feel or how they are doing. I was declared cancer free this summer, but I really didn't talk about it here, because of survivor's guilt.

      Last night I added this to my journey, because miracles can happen- a treatment can work, fate favors us--it's our turn to win the health lottery-god loves us--I think that I was in a rare and magical space and all of the above happened. What I had-isn't really treatable. A radiologist found me and he wanted to try a new method. I was warned that I'd have a good chance of dying from radiation poisoning. Well, I'm still alive and cancer free according to 2 oncologists and my ENT.

      I meant PET scan.

      Still waiting for my insurance to let me have it or deny it.

      Very frustrating and nerve wracking.

      I went for a second opinion at MDAnderson in Jacksonville. My original surgeon is there now.

      Have any of you dealt with Evicore for pre-certifications?

      Never heard of Evicore or pre-certifications.

      Any concerns about the scan? If it helps, over almost 12 years and several clinical trials, I have had 45+ head-to-pelvis CT series, and about 20 PET scans. Survived them all, as well as total body irradiation. As to getting insurance to pay, your doctor's team can exert great influence as far as justifying the scan. If they are a division of MD Anderson, they have ample experience working with various providers. I would hope that they are not allowing you to do their legwork - insurance approvals are within their purview.

      My radiation team took care of everything and rushed everything through in 2.5 weeks. I had to gain 20 lbs to have enough fat to survive the radiation treatment.
