Help to reconstruct my life and body due to 2 types of cancer.

Posted by starrlight @starrlight, Feb 11, 2017

i have two types of cancer Brst and rectal tumor, have been receiving treatment for the Brst not for rectal, i have been unable to find a surgeon for the tumor in this area. i turned to Mayo Clinic once again a couple of days ago and see they have 3 surgeons that practice less invasive surgery for this issue instead of putting the bag on which is a very serious operation and i could not survive it nor would i want to. i am praying that one of these surgeons can help me as this is my last option and believe we should continue to search for what is best for our bodies as we all have different levels of strength and only we know that and the Dr’s who have the knowledge and i trust Mayo Clinic as they are rated no 1 in the country. As far as the Brst. Canc. i am being put on Ibrance within the next week or so and there is not to much the clinic here can help me with however perhaps Mayo Clinic can and will.

Would love to hear from anyone who is or has gone through anything like the above, i had 24sessions of radiation for the rectal tumor in 2015 rec’d third degree burn which was horrible and have side affects today from that. Have heard of the Proton Radiation at Mayo in AZ. as they were going to build a bldg. just for that and have read about good results from other clinics as they target just the tumor and not anything else.

Apologies for the long explanation above however had no-one really to talk to about my feelings, have been told one thing from my Dr. and another from my Canc nurse as to what the drugs are that i am taking for the Brst Canc, so want to go to Mayo Clinic so they can help me to reconstruct my life and body, nutrition etc.

Thank you for reading this and hope to hear from you, i do believe in our Heavenly Father otherwise would not have been directed to this connect today from Colleen of Mayo Clinic, thank you Colleen.

Would love to hear from you.

Hi Mari and Starrlight,
Mayo Clinic does accept new Medicare patients. Mayo Clinic is one of the largest Medicare providers in the country. Unfortunately, we can’t honor all requests we receive from Medicare patients who want to come to Mayo Clinic. We accept Medicare patients in all parts of our practice where we have the capacity to accommodate them and most importantly, as the medical needs of these patients require.
You can read more about Medicare and Medicaid at Mayo Clinic here:
