Forums General Melanoma Community shifting gears – need urgent info on any fin. aid programs for Temodar Re: shifting gears – need urgent info on any fin. aid …


      I'm glad to hear from you Kevin!  Sounds like you are improving if vacuuming is even a consideration, lol!  I see the rad onc today and probably start tomorrow.  I'm already on Ritalin for fatigue so I may ask her about upping the dose if necessary.

      Good news from my insurance co. – approved on the 120 mg. dose of Temodar so I'm looking at about $750 or a little less every cycle – 21 days on then one week off.   Not easy to swing but certainly more do-able than $5000!  I'll should start it tonight.  They said to take it before bed.

      so here goes….

      Take care of yourself Kevin and feel free to call me if you ever need an ear!
