Well That Will Be Nice New Scar!

Well, the this was the first time I saw the surgery they did to my lymphnodes. They have taken out my nodes all the way up to my neck, along with the nerves in my arm pit so can’t feel the side of my chest, part of my back and my arm.

I thought long and hard over whether to publish this picture and some others but as I am trying to show the whole journey I feel it is important to show the reality, the truth and pain of it all.

I am by no means down about this as this is progress, however small it is progress! I am mega happy that something has finally been done to remove this stupid cancer!

This cancer is a massive issue for me now, it is spreading rapidly, hopefully the margins are nice and clear meaning we can start systemic treatment asap.

I am going to do a lot more writing over the next few days as I am in hospital for at least another 4 days.

Much love, thanks for checking stuff out!

Stay real, stay you! Don’t let circumstances change you!

So what's the story? Well in 2015 I was diagnosed with a Sarcomatoid Carcinoma. To say the least it was aweful, I have managed to get through three years now with it coming back with vengance 4 times. On the 29th December 2017 I found it had likely spread. This is my dialogue with myself.

  1. Poor you , so swollen and the pain must be terrible , rest , listen to some music , try audio books maybe ? Thinking of you and your family daily ..x

  2. yuck! Did they stuff everything back where it was supposed to be under your arm? It looks like they forgot a bit! Thanks for sharing, though, it is quite interesting… even if unpleasant.

    i can’t even begin to imagine the pain you are in, though it may be a plus to have the (essentially) nerve block done!! taking away the nerve so you don’t feel that temporary horror living by your armpit could, after all, be a good thing! Trying to look for any positive i can.

    You are unusually strong and I really respect and admire you… you are doing a great job dealing with this imo. i would be folding up like a little baby and crying my eyes out 24/7!

    Keep on keeping on… I care and think of you often!

  3. Yikes! That’s quite the scar there. My first thought is keeping infection away. Your postings are informative, making one think about cancers in a way I’ve never done. In response to a couple things you mentioned in one post: you said people ask you why you keep fighting and going through the pain. The human will and desire is to continue living. Until a person is in your situation they really don’t know how they will react! You’re in a tough place. It’s difficult. The days ahead hopefully will have a path to slow this cancer down. I thought about the pain and now added nausea. Bad! I believe there is power in praying for others. I’ve been praying for you. You’re not ever just another statistic. You are a person. You have value. These posts will help some.

  4. I don’t know if it’s the meds you’re on that’s causing the nausea or maybe the combination of meds but hopefully when your wounds heal up a bit you won’t need so much pain medication. I had a surgery along time ago and nerves were damaged and I have that lost feeling sensation on part of my body. It is weird but you adjust and your brain learns this is your new normal and you don’t notice so much as time goes by. I have a feeling your going to be feeling like a new man by this time next week so hang in there and much love and support to you my friend ❤️

  5. I really hope things get better,,,, you’ve fought hard and continue to…. cancer SUCKS!!!..
    YOU GOT THIS,!!……..PeeWeeStrong….
