Is that a side effect from something?


#302

Yes, all kinds of side effects from the chemo and surgery.


#303

You’ll be boozin an smokin, chasin skirts in no time.
I hope it is that you are nearing a conclusion with this phase of your recovery.
You’re doing good, DM. I think everyone is amazed at your ability to tough your way through such a difficult time. You have been a model for us all.


#304

Ditto what Doc said.


#305

Thanks man, I appreciate it. Got word today they aren’t going to do anymore surgery and just rely on chemo. I’m actually happy about that. The surgery is rough and I was dreading another 2 week stay in the hospital. Besides, lymph nodes serve an important role for the body. Removing them only leads to more issues.


#306

Maybe you will regain it when you get old.


#307

I have completely read this thread and others as well. My hopes and prayers.


#308

Adding items to your bucket list can be addictive. Breaking that addiction can actually be hard. I don’t know why. Perhaps we use that bucket list as a means of coping.

Make it happen man!


#309

That sounds like good news. Keep reading and applying the Anti-Cancer Diet!


#310

Nice undies. :wink: Prayers for continued health.


#311

Good and bad. Good… in that I was dreading another surgery. Bad… in that my oncologist seems to think it’s a necessary part of the protocol while my surgeon says “no way”. I don’t like the fact that my 2 chief doctors aren’t on the same page.

I’m slowly integrating the anti-cancer diet. Right now my biggest dietary goal is to put on a substantial amount of weight, so I’m eating a lot of fatty foods that appeal to me regardless of how healthy they are. Once I put on 30-40 pounds I’ll go full scale anti-cancer diet.


#312

Probably a good approach get some lbs and energy back, then you can start fukkin around with the healthy shit


#313

From my experiences with friends, that seems pretty common. I imagine it’s nerve wracking, though.


#314

In a way thats good, some tension there should keep them both on their toes.


#315

Couple of bad days, but feeling much better today. Gained 5 pounds so far. I know I still look like a holocaust survivor… but I’m making some progress. Thanks again for all of your prayers, positive thoughts and advice, friends.

P.S. as you can see, I’m still wearing underwear from when I weighed 180 LOL.


#316

You almost look like a marathon runner.


#317

Whenever I watch TV and see those poor, starving kids all over the world, I can’t help but cry. I mean, I’d love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff.
