There are surgical options for patients with all stages of mesothelioma. In early stages of mesothelioma, surgery has helped improve survival times and some patients even reach remission. In later stages of mesothelioma, surgery provides comfort and relieves pain. With some cases, the surgery is accompanied with chemotherapy and radiation which can increase overall success rate. Thoracic surgeons perform surgery on the heart, lungs, and other areas of the chest that are affected by cancer while gastrointestinal surgeon handle cancers of the abdomen.
Because of the complexity of the surgery, patients often remain in the hospital for up to seven days or possibly more. Chapter One of Designated Caregiver is devoted to the Hospital Stay. After the many hospitalizations between both of my parents, I decided it would be helpful for others to have some suggestions while going through the hospital maze. Know the nursing and tech staff. Contact the social worker after the first day. Put together a health file including such things as personal ID info, emergency contacts, health insurance info, living will and advance directives, Durable Power of Attorney for Health.
Remember - The patient and caregiver are part of the team.

Assistance available for Veterans -
Veterans who develop mesothelioma as a result of their service in the military are entitled to benefits and assistance from the U.S. government. Veterans make up the largest group of people diagnosed with mesothelioma because asbestos was so widely used by the military. Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma are entitled to disability compensation, pension and/or medical benefits through the VA. Surviving spouses and dependents may also qualify for compensation from the VA.
Mesotheliama.Guide.com has streamlined the process of filing for VA benefits. With the help of their VA-accredited claims agent, retired LCDR Carl Jewett, veterans with mesothelioma can easily file for compensation and benefits. Commander Jewett has helped hundreds of veterans receive the compensation they deserve quickly and easily.

MesotheliomaHelp.org - If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should seek help from a qualified medical professional or health care facility that specializes in treating this complicated cancer. MesotheliomaHelp.org recommends any person who is diagnosed with this asbestos-related disease to meet with a specialist. To help connect mesothelioma patients with the health care providers, they have compiled an extensive, nationwide database of doctors and hospitals that treat this malignant cancer.
Most people who are diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos on the job, military service, and in their homes. Families of workers who were exposed to asbestos are also at risk. Anyone who has been diagnosed with an asbestos disease should seek legal advice about options for financial compensation. Let MesotheliomaHelp.org connect you with an experienced asbestos lawyer.
Assistance available to Veterans -
Veterans with duty-related mesothelioma can receive monthly disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The amount of benefits depends in part on the degree of disability, determined by the VA.
Our team helps veterans and families who are coping with asbestos illnesses. Our nationally recognized asbestos attorneys represent 100's of veterans in lawsuits and will handle your claim for VA benefits. You will not be suing the military. Compensation comes from the asbestos companies that sold asbestos products to the military.
Second-Hand Exposure to Asbestos - Asbestos exposure was not limited to those who worked directly with the dangerous material. Microscopic fibers were often carried home on workers’ clothing, skin, or hair, putting family members at risk of exposure as well.
Family members who are diagnosed with mesothelioma after suffering second-hand exposure to asbestos also have a right to seek financial compensation. Contact MesotheliomaHelp.org to discuss your legal options and learn about additional support services.
