Wink V.A. and Procrit

Have your hematologist order the dose of Procrit he thinks you should have - and then take the scrip to the V.A. My husband - unfortunately - has been recently diagnosed with Stage 4 MDS. He just began tratment with Dacogen. But - our Hema ordered the Procrit long ago - before the MDS was actually diagnosed - and as long as he thinks it is needed - the V.A. said they will provide. I know it is VERY expensive to pay for outright - we couldn't have afforded it, even with the insurance he had when we was working. Another option is to see if the Hema would give it to you directly in his office - but don't hesitate to push all the buttons. Good Luck to You.
Beth - R.N., B.S.N and wife of recently diagnosed husband who has been classified at stage 4 MDS. and I can't help the one I love the most.
