Sorry to hear that, curl. So glad to hear that there is often a positive outcome to your diagnosis. It's great that there is a place like this site that does bring people together to allow them to discuss the most frivolous of subjects, and the very serious. Here's to a very speedy and positive recovery for you. And I don't think you have to worry about upsetting anyone in a debate or anything. You're always rational and not mean spirited, even if your opinions differ strongly from others. Keep your head up, try not to dwell too much on the fear (easier said than done, I know) and focus on things that make you happy.
