Need to tank Bill and Tony againn and this is why.
Meet the radiologist this morning and he spoke about
radiation treatment called 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy, then I asked about
IMRT (thanks guys) so we are now going for IMRT.
IMRT is covered by health insurance (VHI)if you have not had an operation (Prostatectomy) but if you had an op it costs appx €10,000 what a laugh.
The HSE (Irish healt board) in there wisdom say all I need is 4 Cilias tabs a mt Doc says 4 a week so I have to pay €150 per mt my self seems like when you are sick even with insurance they bleed you dry.
At the end of the day all we want is to get well.
Thanks againn for all the help, advise and for beeing there for me
