I am trying to live life the best I can, but I have a few side effects from the radiation. I have jaw problems from degeneration due to radiation. I went to a dentist who made me a night splint. Despite that I had a letter stating facts, and the dental work being medically neccesary. The insurance only covered $39.00 of the $600.00. I now have been referred to an orthodontist. I can only imagine the fight this is going to be. I also need laser treatment on my chin because it looks like a prune from the radiation. I could get breast reconstruction covered at 100%. I guess I got the wrong kind of cancer. Seems there is discrimination between cancers and what insurance companies will cover.
