Had rectal cancer tumor. Had surgery, chemo , radiation. Cancer free for past 5 years!. Changed everything. Like road trips. Get bored, get in truck and explore. Like history such as ghost towns etc. Like being positive! Reconnection failed. Went back to ileostomy after complete blockage. Have driven myself to ER twice with PEs. Got chewed out for doing so. Wife of 40 years passed during this time. Had colostomy 3months ago. Now have herniated stoma. Surgery in morning for that. Will have bag rest of life. Had cat scan and blood work last week.Got home from clinic and received call from pharmacy saying my prescription was ready. It was going to cost $23000 and to call oncologist as insurance wouldn't pay. I asked, in other words this is for cancer. Yes! I was beyond shocked! Called oncologist for explanation. Said they made a mistake. Pill was for someone else. All my results were good. I said, don't you realize some people may have committed suicide getting news like that? Didn't even apologize! Already have new oncologist! Steve
