Health Update

Well, my doctor's nurse called me today and told me he did find a seminoma, as expected. So, it is cancer, or was, I hope. They're going to make appointments for me to get scans and X-rays to see if it's spread, (well, to set a baseline to see if it spreads, I guess) and if so they'll talk about chemotherapy and/or radiation. I'm of course hoping everything is fine now and life can go on as before, sans one testicle. I have a doctor's appointment next Wednesday -- with luck, by then I will have more solid answers. Nurse-in-training lildomino is going to prepare me a list of questions so I don't come away from the appointment empty-handed. I'll keep you informed!

The wait is annoying, but I hope to have answers soon so everyone can relax.

I hope so, too!

I'm not looking forward to the idea of chemo, more surgery, or radiation!

I'm hoping they conclude it's stage one and I'll just have to submit to follow-up tests for the rest of my life. LOL

I've really only just met you, and even then only in a sense, but I am sorry to hear this...but hopefully, they caught it early and all will be well soon.

I love you!
I hope that they got it all the first time. It sounds like you have a good doctor that will let you know what needs to be done if anything. I hope to be able to call you and talk soon. Sending love and healing your way. (((Hugs)))

Re: I love you!
Thanks, sweetie. I do like Dr. Pike, and hope he'll have good news for me next week. Call any time -- I'll be home for another week to heal from the surgery.

It should be -- 95-97% full recovery. Pretty good odds.

Thanks for the hopes and prayers for health!

I really have to applaud the matter-of-fact way that you realized/found out something was wrong and dealt with it right away. And I hope the reward is finding out that you're all set now.

I hope so as well. I did ignore one over-sized testicle for years (someone at a clinic told me not to worry about it unless it suddenly changed shape/size), so I'm hoping I haven't had a slowly growing tumor for years and stupidly ignored it until now.
