I saw my onc at the beginning of December and was told that the Avastin had stopped working! I have not had any treatment since then but am having various tests on the 8 th and 9 th with a view to starting caylix the week after.
My partner wants us to go to Madeira that week and start my treatment the week after. (Where is all this going I hear you ask?)
I cannot get insurance to cover cancer!! I am worried that the cancer has been growing and I could become ill whilst away, how do I get back and how much would treatment cost in Madeira?
I feel safe in this country and know if anything happens I will get driven to the Marsden.
Am I being a wimp, what would be your advice?
Interested to hear your views please. Anthea
