Hey ~ mjr,


Interesting question.  My first thought is ~ no... but it will be interesting to see what you end up doing...  Let us know what you find out and we will see what others share.

No doubt others will see your RP @ 54 April 29th 2006  so far sooooo good PSA <.001  tongue


So ~ thought I'd attach your threads to help others see your journey.

Take care and we're glad you're staying close!!!

In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy

A DM medic alert is fine, unless you also have a severe allergy to something also. Please have a wallet card made up with all of your vital medical / contact / insurance information made though. Takes only a few moments to do this and it saves so much time should you need attention. Everyone should have a copy of vital information in a familiar place for family and EMS to find should an emergency arise. We (EMS) look in places such as the inside of the refrigerator (vial of life) or the inside of a cupboard, ususally near a sink (file of life).
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for bringing this subject up!!!!

Anything regarding prostate cancer surgery is probably not necessary on your Medical alert jewelry.

If you are undergoing therapy for advanced prostate cancer conditions or have undergone brachytherapy or imrt or proton or others you might consider some information if you are already wearing some kind of "medical alert" braclet.

I had an interesting question put to me today.  I was changing my medical insurance coverage.  I was still on medicare and still in an hmo/ppo, but I was asked about preexisting conditions.  They wanted to know if I had cancer treatment.  I said yes.  they asked if i was having ongoing treatment, i said no.  For those of you who are pre-medicare, preexisting conditions limitations are not allowed except in certain circumstances.

The insurance companies are doing all they can to not pay for their obligations.  This was just one more example of gathering information to increase their profits.

OH George Orwell you were so prescient.

After posting....   I went to see what information could be placed on a bracelet and found a few interesting sites.  Thought I'd share...    MedicTag is the original digital USB device designed for emergency medic information and alert.   (2-way alert system…..Diabetic Bracelet and ID Card)
