Mum is still waiting for results. 
 

Gra (her husband, posted about him before) has the same rare form of skin cancer as mum.

 

He’s had his ops and has started a years course of immunotherapy, however his last CT scan showed shadows on the brain so he’s been rushed in for an MRI. 
 

He’s hoping to have the results back within a week. 

All the best mate.

Just found out my dads best mate has bowel cancer, he introduced my mum and dad,was best man at their wedding and gave the eulogy at my dad's funeral. My auntie bumped into him and he's had surgery and is doing chemo. Just hoping he'll be OK.

 

Also found out a lad I went school with is terminal. He has a brain tumour, had surgery around Xmas and radiotherapy. Thing is he has always been a bit of a boozer ect and looked rough since he was about 20. My sister saw him today said he's never looked better, knocked the ale on the head. Then he said they've given him 2 years to live

Not bad mate, apart from tripping and managing to twat myself last Saturday coming home from the pub. Only had two pints (honest m'lud). Barely able to walk for three days.

Sister rang my dads mate. Apparently he collapsed last April and had half his bowel removed. Then chemo. Was told he was in remission then it came back in December. Further surgery and more chemo. Still got his sense of humour "one doctor said I've got to the end of the dfs sales but the other said don't buy any green bananas"

Poor fella, fingers crossed for him mate. (And your old school mate)

Some good news here hopefully, the cancer in all patients in the trial completely disappeared.

Life 1 - 0 Cunt Disease (using hockey scoring here). Fingers crossed it sparks some great progress from this plateau.

Just found out my sisters best mate has colon cancer. She's 38. Lovely girl went on holiday with us when she was a kid. When my dad was ill with cancer she went to visit him which was lovely. No idea on what treatment is yet. Some coincidence both her and my dads best mate are ill with same form of cancer.

Poor girl, I hope they've caught it in time.

It seems like it's fucking everywhere at the moment, I'm sure there'll be some kind of scandal in a few years, processed food or phones or something, but I know loads of people who have it or have had in recent years, of all ages.

Sorry that this sounds negative (it fucking is). It does feel good getting it off my chest though. Rant:

 

There's an advert on tv at the moment with some twat turning a music box thing, and finding out he doesn't have cancer. The message is 'see your GP' and all is well. Well no, it isn't fucking necessarily so.

 

It is certainly good advice, unless your GP is a bog average one who says: "have you just been Googleing symptoms, Mr *********?".

 

Well, if you feel you are being fobbed off, then you probably are. Do not trust the GP when they try to tell you it is in your head. You know yourself better than they do. Everyone is encouraged to think that doctors are great, universally, but they are not. I work with doctors and know the vast majority are competent, and some are blow-your-mind brilliant; but there are lazy, time-wasting cunts in every job.

 

Being a plank let me get to stage 4 Lymphoma (40-60 survival chance due to the delay), after about 10 years of feeling increasingly shit, because a GP gas-lit me by accusing me of hypochondria and neurotic Googling. I work in mental health, so should know better, but still accepted antidepressants for a couple of months before telling the GP to fuck off.

 

The advert is good, in encouraging men to seek GP help, but if shit GPs are expecting lots of responses, they will be adverse to doing their fucking job and properly diagnosing you, or referring to specialist services.

 

Do not be put off by doctors. Ask people that know you best -  do you think I:

 

"seem a bit under the weather all the time?"

 

"lack energy?"

 

"get dizzy a lot?"

 

"look panicky?"

 

"get angry for no apparent reason?"

 

"lost confidence and usual interests?"

 

Loads of other symptoms, but I'm only using the ones I remember. 

 

It's just that looking at some posts on here, it reminded me of being fobbed off by the people we are told we should trust. Two years ago, my GP cut meds out of my Px that were keeping me alive until my Hematology Dr put him straight.

 

Maybe as a working-class lad I trusted GPs too much.

 

Fucking trust you and yours, folks!

You're right about doctors. There are good, bad and indifferent. I reckon I've been lucky with my GP, she was on the ball. I get the results of the PET scan tomorrow, so we shall see.

 

Anyway, best of luck with the lymphoma mate. Her Indoors had that diagnosed a bit late but pulled through. Here's thinking of you.

Some slightly positive news. 
My best mates wife  (who I posted about early in the year) has been told her tumours have shrunk to a size they can operate on and remove the little cunts. 
Hoping everything goes well and it all fucks off for her.

I see nothing negative here, just sound advice from someone who knows.

My family have been on the receiving end of a GP's (locums) incompetence so I know exactly what you mean.

I hope you're well mate and continue to be so.

Just found out my uncle, the man who got me supporting the club instead of that other shower, has died of this cunting disease.

 

82, he had a good innings but still short of what he might have gone onto if it wasnt for this.

 

In some ways, I think I was the son he never had since he had 3 daughters and loved cricket and footie.

 

RIP Ron. YNWA
