  • Clean for one year.

    Well, I'm still standing a year later. Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of my i/o and diagnosis. I don't know know if one nut is better than two, but it's definitely better than keeping cancer inside you. Ain't that the truth...

    Anyway, congrats to Bagpipe! I know our treatments started at different times and ended at different times, but the day that we had the surgery is the day that we started to fight back!

    And for the record, we had our orchiectomies on the same day, at the same time and in the same state (not the same hospital), yet we both are so lame that we still didn't meet up for the beer planned a year ago. Have to do something about that.
    Left IO 4/21/05 | Seminoma Stage I |Blood markers normal before surgery | CT scan and xray normal.
    Final day of radiation was June 2, 2005 (15 days, 2500 cGy total). Anti-nausea drug of choice: Zofran.

        Congratulations! Keep up the good health.

        And I agree, losing a testicle (or two) is well worth it to get rid of cancer.

        Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
