Forums - General Discussion - [Update] Surgery a success; tumor removed.

Dunno why I'm posting this here except that over the past 9.5 years VGC has been almost like a second online home/family for me, a special place where I feel accepted, and I wanted to give an explanation as to why my behaviour in this coming months may be a bit irrational or over the top.

So yeah, just got some unfortunate news from my doctor. The positive side is though,the prognosis is good; this particular kind of tumor most often turns out to be benign. Still, I won't know for sure if it's benign or malignant until they remove it, which could take a few weeks/months.

As someone with OCD and an intense phobia of serious illness, I'm under a huge amount of stress right now as you can imagine, and so while I'll still be posting here, I'm going to try not to participate in the kind of intense debates I usually get into in order to minimize this stress.

I apologize in advance if I lose my cool over the following months, I will try my best not to.

Thank you all for your understanding, and for just generally being an awesome community of people.

You are definitely in my thoughts. I have a similar mental illness. I felt nauseated just clicking on the thread.
I hope you pull through.

I wish you best of luck that it turns out ok. Have lost good people to cancer, but also had great people fight and win. I hope you are on the second group.

Oh shit man good luck fingers crossed it benign. Keep us posted.

I'm surprised and honestly saddened about your health problem.

I hope it's benign and all turns good.

I really, really wish you get well soon, man. Stay positive.

Wishing for the best

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.

Take care of yourself :)

Hoping for the best outcome for you curl.
You are a positive part of the site.
Wishing you and your loved ones the best.
