TailGunner1977, I wish to you the best of luck in your recovery. Beat cancer's rear-end, and stay strong.

 

I'm sorry about some of the sad little trolls that have come to the Thread... Just ignore them.

Thanks Im not worried about some useless trolls who dont know what Im suffering from. They think its all cool and stuff till they themselves or a loved one ends up with cancer or some other potentially life threatening health condition.

 

My oncologist wants me to do chemo but my urologist and cardiologist here in the philippines where Im staying visiting relatives want me to do radiation treatment. Since the cancer type I have seminoma is real weak against radiation Plus they both believe chemo might do more harm than good. Since I also have LVH Left Ventricular Hypertrophy and I suffer from PVCs Premature Ventricular Contractions (though most of them I think are from stress.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.  I'm sure your completely stressed.  Are you able to play tanks while your in the hospital?  Be well.

I did when I was in the hospital but the wifi there was on the first floor and my room was on the 2nd floor. Its a real old hospital from the 50s. I got discharged in mid Dec. Having to deal with walking like an old man getting up and all that because the incision was still fresh. The Urologist already took out the sutures a few days ago. The incision has healed up a lot better then he (the uro) and I expected. No raised welt scars or anything like that. Just a flat mostly smooth surface where the incision site is. The only thing I didnt like about the whole ordeal was right after I got done with the surgery. I had to lay flat on my back for 6-8 hours. Half of that was because the spinal anesthesia started to wear off in  about 4 hours. The rest being the doc wanted to let the incision to heal a bit before I could sit up

Wishing you the best OP.  A strong, positive attitude/belief is as important as treatment.

Cancer is bad news in the first place and I am glad that you caught it early.  Good luck with your future.  And though I see a lot of well wishers I'm a bit of a no nonsense approach on this. PM me if you want to know the truth about your possible future.  I can give you some pointers that might help you out down the road. But these things are personal in nature so that's the reason for the PM to discuss about it.  If not then BE WELL and Godspeed.

Yeah Ive been doing quite a bit of reading on cancers especially the type I got. Its really easy to cure if detected early enough 95+% range if Stage 1 Seminoma. Which is what I have.

Praying for you dude! And I ain’t afraid to say the next life is a damn sight better than this one, tho from what you’ve said it’s doubtful you’ll die.

Thanks ppl. Its really hard on me sometimes. As I also suffer from PTSD (not military related) and Anxiety/Panic issues. WoT and WoW (which I hardly play anymore because it got boring) are some of the online games I usually play to take my mind off things.

Said a prayer for your speedy recovery.  I'm sure the entire process was an ordeal in itself.  I had a CT Scan done almost ten years ago.  I still remember the intense flush sensation I experienced when they injected that radioactive blood-sugar into my system.  Very uncomfortable, to say the very least.  Godspeed to you sir. :honoring:

It wasnt uncomfortable to me. It was the second time I had the contrast pumped into me. The first time was really bad for me. I was coughing uncontrollably for 5-6 minutes and wanted to throw up really bad but couldnt. I was told it was an allergic reaction to the dye. This  2nd time (for the cancer screening) they iv injected hydrocortisone, zantac, and dyphenhydramine into me prior to the procedure. The contrast itself was different from the 1st one. I dont recall the exact name but it started with an *R*. But they used a large syringe that was pressed by a machine. It hurt like someone pinched the hell out of my arm. But I had no allergic reactions or anything other than the warm sensation in my face and all

 

This is the hospital I got the surgery at. Kinda puts you off dont it haha

Just got the CT Scan  results. So far from what I can read from the report.....I dont see anything regarding a potential cancerous mass other than a cyst in one of my kidneys. Looks like Im in the clear :D
