          That is where I will start. I live in Ohio. My Insurance sucks. I can only go to The James in Columbus. If I go someplace else I will need to pay for all my care out of my pocket. As a widower I live week to week as it is. My insurance cost me $399.00 a month. I need to pay the first $6000.00 out of pocket. Then they cover 80%. My hands are tied unless I move. Find a new temp. job. Work for a year, then I could ge...

              I was told by my Family Doctor I had carcinoid syndrome. My serotonin levels were 350. Last year my OBGYN Oncoligest removed several dermoid cysts. At that time my levels were at 750. I have been put off by so many doctors over the years I just quit going. The pain in my sides is getting worse. I am being sent to an Oncologist as soon as I find out who my new insurance is. Promotion at work gives me better insuranc...
