Since I was diagnosed with PKD when I was 17 years old, I had never been able to get health insurance. As most of you know when you get on dialysis, you will automatically be eligible for Medicare health insurance. However, after a kidney transplant, you only have three years after that transplant when you will no longer be eligible for Medicare. My question is, does any one know what I can do now? I have expensive anti-rejection meds to pay for, and will need some sort of medical coverage. I know many people do not have health insurance coverage, but I just wondered if anyone had any ideas!

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
