Thanks for the replies and care.
The nebulizer does work. I began with only a mouthpiece to inhale. I returned to the DME and bought a mask, which makes it more natural to use.
When I saw the Radiation Onc on Monday, she noticed that I was not coughing as much.
The Pulmonologist said that there was no code which Medicare would accept to pay for either the nebulizer (and since not authorized, won't cover the medication either). Thankfully neither is very expensive.
I told the pulmonologist's assistant what the Onc Dr observed and she will get the report from her. (Earlier I said "either I can breath or I can't". Isn't that a good reason to authorize coverage?)
Thank goodness the government does not yet control ALL of healthcare in the USA.
I thank my friends and Christian prayers' for all of they'r prayers. And for our loving All Powerful God for being so All Merciful!
He created us as amazing creatures, and only our bodies can heal and correct our cells to eliminate the cancer.
I have 3 more treatments left. Then it will be 4 weeks before they do a CT scan to evaluate how much good has happened.
