Well the look that the P.A. gave us both ,we knew something was up. But she hurried and got us a copy of the angeogram and copies of thhe meds and treatments i had received. Then they started talking about aggressive med regiments. So My QUESTION IS......JUST WHAT IS AGGRESSIVE MEDS REGIMENTS. THEY SCARED US BY GIVING ME THE IMPRESSION THAT THERE IS REALLY NOTHING THAT THEY CAN DO, THERE IS NO OPTION OF TAKING MORE VEINS FROM MY OTHER LEG, THAY SAID THAT THERE WAS NOTHING FOR THEM TO ATTACHANYTHING ELSE TO MY ARTERIES BECAUSE OF THE BRITTLE NESS. BE HONEST... GOES ANYONE NOW HOW LONG I ACTUALLY HAVE LEFT??????? I HAVE NO BURIAL INSURANCE AND IF I DIE ,MY FAMILY WILL SUFFER DRAMATICALLY. WHAT DO I DO??? I TRULY NEED YOUR EXPERISE AND HONEST REPLYS. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOU TIME.
