I may not know you or the full extent of your situation but in times of great trouble. It is always a good thing to lean on those close to you and those who are not so much neat you, but with you as a friend. I hope your days become a better situation and your year turns out to be the best its been. Many prayers and thoughts to you...
As my father is battling cancer and there's always a need for a helping sense of peace. Happy to see you getting through it
scans of other areas are clear, so there's no indication of any spread. Basically, since the other one was checked back then..and I did a round of chemo, this is being treated as if it's a separate incident altogether. Basically, unless a test tomorrow..and on the day of my surgery turn out good, I have no chance of ever having a child of my own. I think that stings worse than the cancer coming back right now. Just please keep praying. I know it helps.
Well, just in case anyone ever wondered, chemo still sucks. I just finished my 5th straight day and I pretty much have zero energy. Time for the expected weekend crash where it all really catches up with you.
The good news is that I got the second opinion pathology report back from Indiana university, the top testicular cancer center in the country, and it was better than the original local pathology report. The original said it was 60% Seminoma and 40% embryonal carcinoma. Indiana said it was 100% Seminoma. Seminoma is much more common and less aggressive. My first time around, I had at least 95% embryonal carcinoma. Also, both reports showed no signs of vascular or lymphatic invasion ...which is a very good thing.
Just thought I'd give y'all an update. Please continue to pray.
