    Nervous

    Hey guys, thank you for the positive wishes and prayers. Update: As of this past week we got our CT scan results back along with blood work. I don't remember if I had mentioned what was happening, I have a large bulge forming on my right side (where my previous surgery was) and had been thinking I may have herniated the mesh panel holding my right side together so that was the primary reason for getting in to see what was really going on since I have been having pain in that area again.. So, the CT results came back showing whats left of my colon, seemed to be ok. Colonoscopy also was good, no growth or anything inside, fact is showed the colon has healed up well and looked good. The issue looks to be on the outside area between the stomach and rib cage again, similar to the last surgery. So this coming Tuesday morning I will be going in for a PET scan, It is similar to a CT but the difference is that it will use a different chemical contrast. What that will do is basically high light any diseased/cancerous tissue by showing it as a bright yellow area in the imaging. After that, later this week, depending on how my oncologist wants to deal with things, I will do another external biopsy so another hole poke thru my side to take samples of the thickened/bulging area. The last surgery was almost 9 full hours on the cutting table at UCSF, it entailed making a cut from just under the belly button all the way around the right hip to within 2 inches of my spine (pics in here somewhere). What they did was remove a tumor that was between the stomach and the rib cage, it had attached itself in multiple places so after the main mass was removed they cut away the lining that holds the muscle wall to the rib cage in order to scrape it. They then lifted the femoral nerve from the pelvic bone to be able to scrape and remove the cancerous tissue from the pelvis. After all was said an done, they placed an 6"x18" mesh panel into my side to basically hold me together. So, hopefully we find that it is just thickening of the scarred area under the mesh and not new growth. If it is any type of cancer growth it will be back to the cutting room.. I'll know more after this coming Tuesday but thought I would drop in and let you all know what and where we are in the process. I will be back later this week to keep you posted. Thank you to all my hags friends for all the prayers, keepem coming because they work... 😉 George

    What a surprise

    Excellent, thanks Ralph. What is the timing on those go pros? are they a faster startup than the jazz cams/dxg's? EDIT: Whoops, just found a thread with the info, 4 to 5 second fire up.. good to know.

    Thank You Tinhorn.. I know they are, the Lord chose some world class doctors for me so I know I'm in good hands. The hardest part is the mental aspect and getting through post op days and or weeks. But I am a tough ole boy so know I can get through it, already did twice so third time should be a cake walk.... 😉

    Well, I figured I may as well update this. First I want to say thanks to you guys for chiming in, its appreciated. I guess Ill start with the good news. Im still hangin in and stayin positive. I will fight tooth fang and claw till I cant any longer.... 😉 Ok, the bad news. I had my follow up this morning with my local oncologist, my scans came back and showed a new mass forming on whats left of my upper colon and against my stomach. Although It is showing on the exterior this time and not growing from within and through the colon that they could tell. It also showed that my bladder is distended and my prostate is enlarged (I was wondering why it was hard to take a leak, now I know). So, I will be going in for a colonoscopy (just gotta love them) in the next few days to check the inside of the colon. Then I will have another external biopsy (stayed awake on the last one and watched the whole process) to find out whats up. Doc said, it would require another surgery if the biop comes back pos. Not looking forward to that if that's the case. So, I probably won't be on much over the next weeks so I can focus my attention. I am hopeful and stayin positive but asking you guys for some prayers won't hurt... Ill keep you all updated as I proceed through the next steps.. Thank you guys.. George

    What a surprise

    Right on, nice and clear. Is that one of the high end go pros or a knock off? Been searching for a lifetime it seems to find exactly what I want for vid cam, there is always something that makes it not work out, lens, hack etc...

    Yep, made it fine. That fire literally destroyed the whole town though. We drove up there a few weeks ago and it is an unbelievable site. Cars just literally melted in the driveways where it was in a garage, houses are gone except for chimneys standing, then it goes for acres or hundreds of yards with everything in its path gone then there will be a house untouched. Really crazy. There are still people living in vehicles all over in our town, parked at walmarts, home depots and any place they can just park to get by... Really Sad, paradise was a beautiful mountain town, completely gone except for few areas that it skipped over.

    Hey guys, Just passing this on as I was unable to get back to some of you since last weekend (sunday). Xfinity/comcast modem went down and it took out our home network so lost all service including the wifi so was basically stuck in caveman days all week...lol.... They were finally able to get here today after 4-1/2 days without and get things all up and going with a new modem and network setup. I just replied to the last messages I received from last sunday to get caught up. It really is unfortunate how reliant we have become to the technology and when it is disabled it really puts a damper on doing a lot of what we are use to doing on a daily basis. Makes me think back to the old wall phone and 15ft curly cord compared to today's tech and makes ya wonder how anyone ever got along in the old world we were so use to for so long.....lol Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know, I got your messages and replied back tonight. Geo

    Hi Gary, Actually I didnt,.. hadnt given much thought to the switch being a problem since the cam functions like it should through all board operations (day vid/night vid, leds on, mic on etc) so will check that out..It may just be the way I wired it so I'll have to go back thru the whole thing to see what I can come up with. stuffs just not as easy as it use to be...lol

    Yeah, you are right Tinhorn.. Its always a mind game, when you think on it you worry and worry can be just as bad as a disease... Thanks speed2spare, I'm hoping its just ghost pain myself.... 😉 Good info kdornski, thanks for sharing that.. I have a pretty strict diet I follow, cut out all sugar/processed bs and eat more veggies and fruits then ever...lol Thanks Vic, I work on the positive thinking everyday... Sorry to hear you went thru that with your mom. It really has to stink for family members because they witness/see the daily change and degradation like my wife did... I personally didnt really notice it much until I became really weak and lost the 90lbs, then it became really apparent I was in trouble.. I thank God everyday for the world class surgeons and nurses that took good care of me at UCSF.

    I have my 3 month check up and dual contrast scan coming up in a couple weeks and it is weighin on me. I know some guys and gals have gone thru a cancer ordeal here and they know the turmoil this dreaded disease brings to the table. I dont talk much about it and for some weeks now have been having recurring pain in my side again. Its not even 1/100th of what I felt prior to the original diagnosis but its enough for it to bring back the memory of all that transpired. I have not said a word to my wife yet because I dont want to jump the gun so to speak. She had a real tough time during the 18 months of me going from a normal, active, working 240lb guy to a lifeless, pail gray, frail 150 guy bed ridden. Not askin for advice, just kinda venting I guess. This crap is on my mind 24/7 and having been pretty much cut in half am reminded every minute of not only what it has done to me physically but how it effected my wife, sister and friends. I try to stay mentally positive about it. I actually learned a little self hypnosis trick years and years ago, posting little sticky notes in well travelled areas that you conscientiously dont see but see sub contiously so I keep little notes everywhere for myself as a reminder to keep positive. Anyway, if any of you guys/gals have experience in how you deal with these type of things, id love to hear about it with whatever you want to say. I Hope everyone is having a great day and an awesome holiday season.. 😊
