rollo's cancer journey
Forty days ago I was given the diagnosis that I probably had lymphoma or breast cancer and as an outside chance a benign tumour.
It has been a long wait, lots of doctors have been involved as my case was so unusual, but now the diagnosis is in and I do not have cancer.
The huge unseen, unfelt tumour in my chest has been diagnosed as benign!
Since a recent biopsy I have developed pleurisy a very painful condition, and I am on on 24 hour pain killers.
I have been in hospital for days for endless tests.
I would like to thank all nameberries who have supported me through this difficult time, your prayers, positive thoughts and practical help have been SO very much appreciated.
Soon I will have open chest surgery to remove the tumour therefore I will not be around for a while but will be thinking of you.
EDIT, EDIT for all my nameberry friends,
I have just reread my post re my health issues early last year and after a visit today to the specialist who operated on me I now know that the tumour was indeed a cancer and given more time may have been more invasive and perhaps out of control ie not operable. However, on the good side there is a more aggressive cancer that originates from the thymus gland too and usually by the time it is found the cancer has spread throughout the body, so I am very happy to have avoided that.
Now it is just a matter of time to get back to my old strength and each month that goes by sees me getting stronger. I am very happy now that I understand the condition more and that I am well on the road to recovery. The doctor says that not every cancer is bad.

Wow I'm so glad it was benign! What a relief that part must be. I'm sorry to hear that you're in pain despite the good news. Here's to a speedy recovery for you. I will say a Misheberach for you, it's the Jewish prayer for physical cure, restoration, and strength of body and soul.“And remember, my sentimental friend, that a heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.” L. Frank Baum, The Wizard of Oz
