If having these teeth pulled is really a matter of life or death, then your doctors who diagnosed you with the tumor should be working to help you get this done. Or they should have a social worker helping you or SSI needs to hear from the doctors that your case is an emergency and needs to be pushed through NOW. I just find it nearly impossible to believe they are leaving you to fend on your own. Are you a veteran? Could you call on the VA?
I work at a hospital and there is no way we would just hand you a dx of cancer and shove you out the door because you need to have some teeth pulled. Something seems off here.
If you cannot find help, go to the newspaper and tell someone your story.
Public outcry will do the rest.
I wish you the very best.
