    So a month or so ago I posted about me having

    testicular cancer. I've had my surgery 3 weeks ago which they removed the testicle that had the lump and they gave me a prosthesis testicle. So now I'm slowly recovering. I got a phone call from my dr this morning and they said it might not have been cancer and just a cyst. So I...

    Life-Changing 24 Hours

    Two weeks ago, I was a regular 22 years old guy, dreaming about a distant life, medical school, leading a usual, perhaps a bit harsh, life, living on my own, and mostly - looking forward to the bright future I promised myself. Not having a simple childhood, my strength grew these...

    My last chemo treatment has totally messed me

    up. I'm taking 3 anti - nausea meds and still vomiting 6-10 times a day. No taste so nothing is appealing to eat. Pain and skin sensitivity keep me uncomfortable. Life sucks

    "I have cancer" and "you have cancer" are the

    most nerve wracking statements I think exist. A little over a year ago, I went to the doctor for a totally unrelated issue, he saw an area of skin and decided to biopsy and it came back positive for cancer. I was an idiot and got scared and didn't know how I'd pay for the...
