7. Me too!
I had the "Randi Rhodes" surgery last year...

I was very lucky,I had insurance (for the first time in 10 years!) to cover most of it, but I still owe the hospital $2,000.

Of course, it would have been caught years ago if I had insurance, and the first surgery would have gotten it all. Unfortunately it had "progressed". :eyes:
I still say I'm lucky though, no chemo or radiation nec.


take it from someone who's been there.
