Thank the Lord, my insurance WILL cover SIR spheres. I had just finished praying yesterday morning when I got the call! (My insurance company, bless their heart, was putting up a valiant fight to avoid this expense.) Anyway, I am ecstatic and terrified all at the same time. I've joked saying that avoiding this procedure (as it miraculously "found me" in my small hometown) is like the joke where a man steadfastly rejects three rescue attempts from his rooftop during severe flooding, proclaiming "The Lord will provide!" When the poor man eventually drowned he met the Lord, brokenhearted, and asked "Why did you forsake me, Lord?" Exasperated, Lord said "For pete's sake, I sent three boats to get you!" So, I know I would be foolish to not take advantage of this opportunity. But, I am so reluctant as it is so creepy!!! I've put on my game face and been through a LOT (as each of you can appreciate), but this procedure is daunting. May I please ask: would those who have experienced this (or embolization..I think is another name for it) please tell me how you felt, how it's benefitted, how long the help lasted and what was done afterward. Of course, I'd like to hear stories like the first article my father sent 6 mos ago from the Charlotte Observer. Suzanne Lindley (who is still an advocate for those of us with liver mets) was told she needed to go home and make arrangements. She had metastatic colorectal cancer with liver, lung and bone involvment. Now, 12 years later, she is an advocate for SIR spheres. I guess I'd just like reassurance like this from our own community. As always, thanks for any input. I appreciate the generosity of your time. Prayers.
