[Update] Radiation therapy complete, awaiting surgery

Forums - General Discussion - [Update] Radiation therapy complete, awaiting surgery

When you're feeling stressed or worried, just try and think about how great it will feel afterwards when it's done and over with and in the past. Plenty of gaming to look forward to yet.

Best of luck.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Thank you all. I really appreciate the support.

That's really sad to hear. I guess this a reminder that we should take measures to keep ourselves in good health where we can. Hope you get better! I can't imagine this site without you (not to be cheesy).

Well, I certainly don't plan on going anywhere. :)

I wish you the best and a smooth recovery, man. I was shocked when I realized you're the OP. I think it goes without saying that you're still very young, and being myself someone that is also extremely fearful of illness, I can only imagine the staggering amount of pressure, fear, and anxiety you must be having right now. Don't think about it and always have a positive outlook, that's really the only thing I can say.

Yeah I used to draw some comfort myself from the fact I just turned 30, which means my risk for most serious illness is low. And I suppose that does mean I have better chance of recovery than I would if I was elderly. Apparently these particular ones tend to show up spontaneously, but if it helps your own fears, bear in mind that as I mentioned, they're usually not malignant.

really good to hear that there is a high chance of positive outcome to this and it's great that you're already working with doctors and health professionals even though you have a phobia of medical conditions (tbh a fear of getting sick isn't really irrational a fear to have) but if you are offered treatment which will remove or shrink it go for them asap, if someone offers you apple cider vinegar as the cure to it.... take the bottle and shove it right up that persons anus as far as you can, you can use it as a test of your strength to make sure you're keeping muscles active!

I know it's hard to do right now as well Curl but try not to worry and trust that your doctors will do everything that they are trained to do to help you, stress and negative feelings can make people very sick even without any other things wrong with them so try to stay positive and like you said avoid unneeded arguing on here... or you know what, maybe the odd rant related to Video game sales and other non serious matters might draw your mind off the worry over this thing.

Sending all the positive vibes your way man, you get yourself better soon alright.

Oh I definitely plan to go 100% with what the doctors and experts recommend, which at the moment is removal ASAP. I've had my fair share of people offering me quack cures in my life due to being autistic, one guy tried to convince me Broccoli Oil would cure me once.

Oh yeah, definitely don't plan on missing out on Bayonetta 3! ;)



I hope for you that it is and stays benign.

Good luck, you're gonna need it.



I’m really sorry to hear about that, curl.

Stay strong, keep your head up, and try to stay positive.

I hope and pray for your quick recovery!

Im glad to hear/read its benign.
You take care of yourself, I wish you the best and I hope this is something you can overcome unscathed. I enjoy reading you, even tho our opinions usually differ, you seem like such a nice person. This site wouldnt be the same without you. Stay positive, I wish you the best.

Well on the bright side, if the prognosis is good then there might be a happy ending for you after all!

Thanks. I am trying to be as optimistic as I can. My Mum and Dad both beat cancer, so I should have some good genetics going on there haha. (Well, in addition to expert medical intervention!)

I don't know yet if it's benign. I certainly hope it is, and statistically it's more likely to be benign than malignant, but I'll have to wait for them to cut it out then analyse it to know. Thank you though. :)



Definitely not news you want to hear. It’s good that you stay positive. Glad the prognosis is good, and I hope it stays that way. Get well soon!

Damn. That sucks. I hope you get better soon.

Thanks man. As far as tumors go, the chances of a positive outcome are pretty good with this type, so I'm trying to stay positive. If all goes well, it should all be over with in a couple of months. It is kinda terrifying though as illness is a central focus of my anxiety disorder.

When I opened the thread, and saw the OP was Curl-6, Im like "I know that guy", your not just some random user here.
I was abit bummed, usually a thread with "I have a tumor" doesnt end well.


Glad it turn out to be benign, Curl.
Best of wishes on your recovery.



Try to stay positive,eat healthy and get enough sleep.
I wish you a good recovery.
