on medicare no luck w/them approving new tx !!!???
Hello to all!! Talked with CNA yesturday. She said that they wasnt having any luck with medicare approving the telaprevir for txs.She said it could be months b4 I could start txs on that combination. But she is saying there is alot of great success with some free clinical trails right now that would start in a couple of weeks at no cost to me. Cause my cost on medicare is 20% out of my pocket which cant do!!! She said txs are only lasting 12 to 24 weeks & some with no injections just pills. Im just so tired of this hanging over my head & want 2 get started on something & get my life going again. But a little worried how it would effect my fibromyigia which is serve!!!! Any ideas???
Thanks, Boxerbabs (Paula from ohio)

Guess i'll just go in an talk with her about it all. weight out the options after the talk!!!!! thanks again
