I'm so sad to hear the news isn't positive. I sure hope the doctors turn out to be wrong.

Well nobody knows. My cancer is rare and highly dangerous. I was supposed to die last November in 14. I am still here, I will beat this crap.

My mum used to say "Just a temporary set back". That is all this is.

You watch. I'll still be annoying the crap out of you guys for years to come until you wish I were dead! Big Grin

And thanks. Smile

If the writing was on the wall for me I'd prefer my doc to be straight up.

Me, too. But the offer of a nice cocktail or a steak immediately after would have been nice.

Hang in there, Banjo. Doctors are wrong a lot of the time.

I used to give bad news a lot when I was nursing and being straight and unambiguous without using euphemisms is how we were taught, but talking about writhing in agony were you to have x procedure done would have scored me a big fat fail in my exams. I was so good at giving bad news to relatives when I was nursing on the AIDS unit in the late eighties they gave me a nickname, grim reaper ! Thankfully they had the sense not to use it in front of patients, but nurses and doctors often have a very dark sense of humour goes with the territory I guess. Doctors do frequently get things wrong banjo, if anyone can show them that its you my friend, keep fighting bud.

RE: I have survived toughest year. Still in danger, but still alive.
Thanks guys. I will be okay. This thread is a diary. It is an open exposure of what a person in my position goes through. Lots of it is fucked up. But I am sick. The Dr was correct to give it to me straight. I prefer it that way. At least I know where I stand. Which is currently No man's land. :}

I did have nice Japanese dinner and two Japanese beers afterwards. So things are not that bad. And I still live. That is most important. The Now is what I am all about. Smile

Plus I bought a lovely French wine and drank it all. Shhhhh. It is a secret. Wink

And I live to see young bands such as this take music forward. That is what I love. Progress.

The drummer has practiced his doubles and various paradiddles well. Smile

Did not see this reply. Must've posted at a similar time.

Man I have had 29 broken bones. Lived on a cancer ward for 10 months. Experienced the heaviest chemo a human can take.

What else can happen?

If my future choice involves agony then death, I'll just take death. At least I have the option. Nothing is to be hidden from me. And I have made that clear to my wonderful doctors.

I am not afraid.
