Just found out my dad's second set of chemo didn't help his myeloma either. Feeling really down about it.

I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma stage 2B back in 2004 following chemo and radiation we thought I am all clear. It's been almost 12 years since I completed radiation. recently went for an MRI of my spine back is fine, mass seen in my chest. CT and PETscan confirm three increased lymph nodes, and high uptake in one of them, with lower uptake amounts in three. Going for biopsy on Sept 29. I have been told it looks like late recurrent Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but cannot confirm until after biopsy. I'm terrified, and although my family is supportive, i am mostly left alone and I sit up all night. I have not slept more than 3 or 4 hours a night since this started a few weeks ago. I am developing tremors from anxiety and lack of sleep. I married for the second time a few years after my first battle with cancer. My 2nd divorce was finalized just a few months ago and I feel cheated out of having someone to be my helpmate. I just feel, I don't know, I just don't know. Having a hard time following my clean eating or really eating anything at all that takes any effort, and having a hard time getting up to work out, particularly since I am so tired from the insomnia.

Back in July I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer. Now there are 2 masses 1 definitely cancer and the other probably cancer. The problem is they will not start treating the cancer until I pay the deductible which is $3400. The only way I could come up with that kind of money is to put everything I own in storage and become homeless. Then I could do it in 6 months. I'm 63 now I don't know ow well I could cope with being homeless.

The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination.

You are in my prayers Eileen; I hope that the pain can be explained by something treatable, that is NOT cancer. emoticon

Next week I'm going in for my 1 year C.T./follow-up after my kidney cancer surgery last year. Feeling a bit nervous and having "pains" on my left side.
Thanks! Eileen

An update: I only have a $6.35 monthly copay on the Afinitor. I was told there will be no copay on the Aromasin, but I am still waiting to find out when the Aromasin will be delivered.

I started the Afinitor last Friday. So far, I haven't noticed any bad side effects. It does make me feel sleepy, but that's not really a problem since I take it around 8pm.

Thank you; financial burdens aren't something that any cancer patient should have to deal with.

I'm still waiting for the company to call me to arrange a time when I will be home for delivery.

I'll continue to keep you in prayer. It's such a shame that cost of meds is something that you need to deal with. Hoping everything works out!

Thank you Kathy; I am still waiting to hear from the company that will be sending me the drugs via FedEx; I'm wondering if the insurance is the hold up. If I don't hear from them in a couple of days I will call my chemo nurse.

Shari I keep you in my prayers, but I will certainly pray extra hard for your insurance to cover the costs and for your side effects to be minimal!

I will be starting a couple of new meds soon, Aromasin and Afinitor. I'm a little anxious about the possible side effects, especially the Afinitor. One of the biggest side effects is mouth sores.

I'm also a little worried about the cost; not so much the Aromasin, since that is available as a generic, but the Afinitor won't be generic until 2017. I could use some prayers that my insurance will cover at least the majority of the cost.
