VA assistance

Posted by eott6913 @eott6913, Mar 31, 2018

Is anyone else dealing with the VA? How long does it usually take to get approved, see a Dr and get referred back to your oncologist?

Meka here, I wish I could say something positive about VA care, I am 100 percent and when diagnosed with lung cancer last year, was given one treatment choice after three months, told it was metistatic and I had maybe a year. No to second opinion, no to a larger VA with better cancer treatments. Luckily turned 65, and thank goodness Mayo accepted me. It's costing me money, but been through too much to just give it up. Yes, I have outlived their expiration date and planning on keeping on!!! Good luck!!
