Lymphoma?
« on: October 30, 2017, 05:22:42 AM »
Gang, I had a scare over the summer, where I had a muscle spasm in my chest, right next to my sternum.  I was laying on the couch at the time, and I rocketed off the couch as the spasm hit.  Before my feet hit the floor, the spasm was over.  I talked to my primary care doc, and he suggested a C/T scan of my upper chest.  The scan came back, and what it showed was that I had several swollen lymph nodes in my upper chest, around my esophagus and in my armpits.  I had a few stomach bugs this spring/summer, as well as a bacterial upper respitory infection, and bronchitis (which is vital, as I found out), so I wasn't surprised to have swollen lymph nodes.

My primary then scheduled a full torso C/T scan, which found the same swollen lymph nodes.  So, after consulting an oncologist, I decided to have an entire lymph node removed from my right armpit.  That surgery was last Tuesday.  I get the results of the biopsy tomorrow, maybe even late today.  It could be 1) nothing; 2) a 'low-grade' lymphoma, 3) full-blown lymphoma.  I'm pretty sure that it's the first one, but Tom Petty was right about things like this:  The waiting is the hardest part.  If anyone could spare a few prayers, I'd be grateful.

Prayers! Hoping it is the first, just an effect of the earlier infections.

Prayers for sure!

My wife had a lymphoma in her intestine removed 3 years ago.  It was complete and she remains cancer-free but we continuously worry that it will return.

An update:  my oncologist called me and said, "I can't do anything for you--the biopsy came back benign."  Thanks to those who prayed!

Great news
"Liberalism is an essentially feminine, submissive world view. Perhaps a better adjective than feminine is infantile. It is the world view of men who do not have the moral toughness, the spiritual strength to stand up and do single combat with life, who cannot adjust to the reality that the world is not a huge, pink-and-blue, padded nursery in which the lions lie down with the lambs and everyone lives happily ever after."


~ Dr. William Pierce

That's the most awesome thing I've read this week!
These things have a way of reminding us not to stray from God... even when it happens to someone else.
Very happy for you!
