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.
