Maybe not the best time to post. Not in a good mood.
Today I knew before I went to the appointment with the dermatologist that the big f$@kin thing on my cheek was cancer. So it was no surprise when the dermatologist said it probably was cancer and would need to be removed then a biopsy done.
Brief History of my previous 2 cancers.
Thing is when I told my GP I had prostate cancer and wanted a PSA test he did not want to do it. I had to have a discussion with him over this and he would only do the PSA test after he physically examined me (not fun). After further tests yes it was prostate cancer, so I had the prostate removed. Lost the erection but no incontinence thanks to lots of pelvic floor muscle exercises.
Onwards and upwards.
Got over that. Then along comes Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma,
Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinaemia is the full title. Quite rare I believe. It’s not curable but treatable.
Because of my parents’ history of cancers, I was not totally surprised.
Anyway 6 lots of chemo, 2 years of maintenance. Apart from a period about 6 months of short unpleasant hospital stays with quite serious infections I have been doing well. Keeping active riding my bike and going for walks. The cancer won’t go into remission but can be kept under control. I go once a month for an infusion of immunoglobulin for my immunity. This not good because my veins are such that its not easy to get the blood to flow.
Again Onwards and upwards.
I have just had my left sinus cleared out and my deviated septum fixed. That went really well and was feeling great.
So I am thoroughly pi%&d off that today the dermatologist informs me the f£$kin on the side of my face is probably cancer.
