    Just found out I have a cancerous tumor in my nose. Been telling the docs for uears I've had nose problems. They found I has a severely deviated septum so after years of suffering like permanently stuffed up sinuses, they finally went in to fix the septum, and were supposed to like rotor rooter out my turbinates, whatever that means. But they found a large tumor behind the septum, which was hiding it.. So it looks like I'm now set up to try full face radiation therapy. Which they tell me are going to kill my salivary glands, which will rot all my teeth out. So Tuesday I have to go get all my teeth yanked out. Which the VA will pay for, but they will not pay for dentures for me. Meanwhile my regular VA doctor has decided unilaterally to halt my hydrocodone pain meds Typical government red tape. Eating regular meals are elective I guess, as is the severe pain I'm in from 2 total knee replacements. The pain pills I've been on for 10 years are addictive, he wants me to cold turkey no pills during all my other radiation/chemotherapy woes.

    Jesus, that's brutal. Huge wishes for a speedy recovery. We're dealing with a serious cancer issue in our family as well, so I can understand the difficult times ahead..

    And yes good old fashioned government medicine.. I can only imagine the disaster once Obamacare takes hold.

    What gets me is the VA will pull all my teeth, but won't get me dentures.

    thank goodness they finally found it...it is very strange that they wouldn't pay for the dentures. The system is definitely messed up.
    Here is hoping for a speedy recovery!

    I'm praying for you brother. Just having cancer is not a death sentence. I am still alive 11 years later. Hang in there. God is always in control

    wow, good luck man. You should talk to them about doing Proton therapy, it's easier to direct to the cancerous tissue and leave the healthy tissue alone. Something to think about
