Has anyone ever been told by their parents PCP that it is harder to get PetScans and procedures done on patients over 75? My Dad is 80 soon to be 81 next month. He has been diagnosed with dementia and has diabetes. My Mom is 79 and has Parkinson’s and Dementia that is causing a lot of issues. A least she still knows who I am. I asked her PCP if she could schedule a PetScan for Mom because her Mom died of Bone cancer and my Mom has been in so much pain she hardly gets off the sofa these days. Her doctor told me no she couldn’t because it is frowned upon to do that on someone her age. I was struck speechless. And that was the end of our conversation. My Mom is a one year survivor of breast cancer. So what the heck? Does Medicare stop paying for somethings after 75 years old? I am their youngest daughter and caretaker. The medical world frustrates me!
