  • Starting a new job, and relocating

    Well, I am off to new horizons. I accepted a job in the Rochester NY area. I was reluctant at 1st because all of my treatments have been here in Memphis and was worried about having to get a new oncologist. I have been done with treatments since Nov.11th and all clear so far. If anyone here knows of a TC specialist in the Rochester area please let me know. Another concern was health insurance. I will be getting coverage there the 1st of June so I will not have any lapse. I am not sure about whether disability insurance would cover if a recurrence should happen, but I have to take a gamble. I and my Wife are both originally from the area and all our Family is there. When I was sick, we realized how important being near Family is, and that is the major reason for this decision. Anyway, wish me luck. Thanks.
    Diagnosed 7/5/05, Rt. I/O 7/29/05, Nonseminoma Stage IIa, Started 3XBEP 9/06/05 changed to 4XEP due to reaction from Bleomycin. Currently surveillance.

      I am sure your family is really excited about the move "home." Best of luck to you, Larry, in your new job. I am sure someone on this forum will refer you to a good oncologist. It is great that everything is working out for you. Dianne
