I have been seeing my onc. since April of 2010 after a horrible experience with another onc. I have been PCRU since July of 2010. Now he feels it's time to do a BMB and I am scared to death. The 1st onc. let me lay there crying and screaming cause it hurt so bad. My current onc. says he's giving me a local and I won't feel a thing but I'm still afraid cause my blood pressure dropped last time and they wouldn't give me any more sedation med. Can you be PCRU and still have something major going on in your marrow? I am still dealing with the tightness and what they say is anxiety, I think I am stuck with that. I am on Buspar and xanax but I won't take more than 4mgs a day of xanax. I don't know if the Buspar is doing any good really and I have tried to cut back on the xanax and can't. I feel like a drug addict and don't like that. My onc. says if I need it to take it but he's not the one getting addicted to it. He's a wonderful dr and I feel he did wonders for me compared to the other one but just not sure on the xanax and BMB. He is a specialist and the other one wasn't.
I had a partial hysterectomy done in Sept. but it was just a cyst on left ovary and came back ok but my little cut on right side won't heal right. It's not closing like it should and oozing clear liguid and a little blood so I guess I have to go back for that. My husbands work changed insurance Oct. 1st to HealthAmerica with high deductable but his work is paying part of my share for me. Waiting for the speciality pharmacy to call me about my Gleevec, dr did his part already. It's called Accredo. Hope it's not to long so I don't have a shortage of pills. I think I have like 17 left. My co-pays for specialists went from $20 to $40 but some co-pays for meds went down. I hate change!!!!!
Just a update and really scared on this BMB after the bad experience. I am done venting now!!!!
