Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
This is Dr. David
you need to see a gyn oncologist to have a TAH/BSO total abdominal histerectomy and bilateral salpingo oophorectomy to remove your uterus and ovaries and fallopian tubes.
you should apply for emergency medicaid in your state.
because you have a cancer diagnosis, you are eligible.
some university hospitals will get you on the OR schedule if you have medicaid.
you need to talk to a social worker at a hospital or cancer center to work with you on getting insurance right away.
the MRI scan shows that the uterine cancer hasn't spread yet, but you still need surgery to remove lymph nodes in your pelvis to check for cancer spread outside of the lymph nodes
you may still need additional chemotherapy and or radiation therapy after the surgery depending on the findings of the surgery.
let me know if you have questions.
Obama-care law which was passed said that insurance companies now can not deny you because of pre-existing conditions.
