and oncologists happy to put you on a $100,000/yr drug that might extend your life by two months.
Exactly. I watched my brother go through this. I know one chemo he was on was $16000.00 per treatment. And yeah, to get two months.
A doctor, name escapes me, wrote a book called How We Die. His brother had cancer and the doc tried everything in the world to save him. He couldn't. Looking back he said he did the wrong thing by making his brother suffer more instead of letting him die with dignity.
I will not do chemo or radiation if dx with advanced cancer.
My psychiatrist is the real deal, too. I'm grateful to have him. What can I say?
Life is good.
