Joining the BC Club: Episode 2

7 years 3 weeks ago #40264 by rbmc
Hi again Diesel ....... sorry for the late reply here to this. The Newbie is also a dumb Newbie! Not until recently did I finally get a copy of a CT scan report prior to my first visit, which revealed the need for surgery then. #2 was the mystery, but, a tumor was removed. Urine tests seem to be questionable in detecting cancer? As you can tell, the Episodes following had much better activity.

chapter 3 should by no means include this doctor. You need to get to a professional doctor. this doc you are seeing could not poss ably tell if you had a tumor. that is why they do the scope before hand.
I have had several tumors, and a pee test never showed cancer.


This doc you are seeing is taking you for a ride.
Please do not let this doctor make decisions for you or with out your knowledge.

Thanks G:
Clubs can be cumbersome and heavy, but effective....to swing at doctors. Being of German heritage, I prefer to wield a beer. I am now #5 in the family of cancer history. Rub that Crystal Ball, Chapter 3 is on the way.

Mike.......
it was still summer, and lots of time for that beach and beer. Better anesthesia than the expensive crap the hospital gives you! Stay tuned, Chapter 3 even surprised the hell out of me, and my still semi-positive outlook.

Oh man! I love that you have gotten that Bc sense of humor! You are NOW a TRUE member of the club! This Bc thing is a real pain, and the only way you can get through it is with a club in one hand and a stand up comedian's microphone in the other.

You have crossed over to the survivors side. I can feel your energy as you write your Chapters.

This bump in your road will pass

Maddening & frustrating are correct. Are they doing the right thing for each case? Yes, it seems tough, for a newbie to try and determine what to do based on their situation. If the doctor doesn't communicate, what do we do? And the PS, I prefer late summer when Lake Michigan is up to 78-80!
