I am retired. Had a knee replaced which infected and had to be taken back out for five months.
Then had breast cancer. After radiation and chemo, three years later had cancer which was in radiated tissues, cancer called angiosarcoma, so another surgery to remove more. Now teeth are abscessing, and having all of them removed. Other knee needs replaced badly, if I can get past all these other things that have to be healed first!
Do not call on my phone... Mailed information is ok.
