Summary
Damn onifre. Another one. What kind?

Summary is simple: obviously we need to have another thread to continue this.

Thanks all for your support.

NOT A SUMMARY BUT AN UPDATE
It has been almost 2 whole years since my last post on my condition (Message 297), and that is because the news has been good.

Yesterday my oncologist said the latest cat-scan did not show evidence of lymphoma.

This cancer is not considered curable, but we can get periods of remission ... and this is the longest period since I was first diagnosed.

Part of it may be diet -- cutting out foods of questionable value, going with local fresh organic food, cutting out sugars and starches as much as possible.

Now all I need are some good results for the elections ...

Enjoy

Topic taken out of summation mode
It had been closed, I presume because of the 300 messages per topic that was the standard at the time. It was that if topics got too many messages long, they were liable to self-destruct.

Or something like that.

Another UPDATE -- Ned
Now that we are out of summary mode I can provide an update.

Good news is I am still in remission, going on for 5 years now, out of the 12 years I've been living with it.

Bad news is that we have a new member:

A new road trip, Message 29: I am told I have "low grade" (i.e., slow growing) colon cancer. I complained that I deserved to have a better quality than that but my doc laughed at me.

I'll lose the first half of the large intestine but I'm told it should have no consequences after a few months of recovery.

Since it is slow growing there was any attempt to rush it particularly but for cancers they do move things up a bit. I did have to have my doc hurry things to get the colonoscopy in about a 2 week wait.

The good news is that the surgery should mean permanent cure.

enjoy
