peacelover Posted November 19, 2006 Share Posted November 19, 2006 Hi All- I just had to share this..I went to the doctor for a physical last week. I started training for a marathon and am turning 40 next year and wanted to havea baseline as to how much my health improves with this training. Anyway, I told my doc my moms history and that my paternal grandma had LC and that I wanted a chest Xray.... he said...'you have a cough' I said no, 'i do not have a cough' he says again...'melissa you have a cough' I say nope no cough just want an xray cause my mom never had a cough either and still has LC Doc proceeds to tell me that without a cough or some symptom my insurance will not pay for an xray at a routine physical.... WHAT!!!! They take money from me twice a month and I cannot get a 75$ Xray that could save my life!!!!I tell him that is crazy and he tells me that there is no clinical evidence that yearly xrays help in survival or detection of lung cancer..WHAATTT!!!! I was amazed and enraged! what exactly is good for detection anyway!!!! I fained a cough and got my xray!!! blessings! Melissa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
