No problem with my insurance, its military health insurance . I haven't had a problem with any of my procedures at all.I do still get copays but they are reasonable.

Glad you are doing well on the Keytruda. Did you have any problems getting approval from your insurance company for Keytruda? Doug's oncologist indicated they wouldn't approve it if Doug didn't try chemo first. I think his urologist would be more willing to go to bat for him against the insurance people.

Thanks for sharing!
