I don't mean this as a pat on my back...but a desire for you to fight on. My LAD artery was 100% clogged when I showed up in the ER in July 2007. I recovered, and my cardiologist says my heart is better than ever. In 2008, I was diagnosed with Gleason 7 prostate cancer.....had surgery....My PSA is now 0.01. I had a clean colonoscopy in 2008, and the gastroenterologist told me to come back in 2018. In 2014 I went to the ER for a totally unrelated matter,and I was told I had Stage 3 colon cancer. My five-year anniversary is coming up. My CEA is now 0.98. Sigmund Freud said "The goal of all life in death."
But not while I have anything to say about it, My body may want to, but my brain doesn't. So far the two of us are winning.
And if something else comes up, we'll face it again. I don't give up easily. Lisa, you are a survivor. That doesn't mean in one instance, that means in every instance. I know how it is to feel like "Why Me?" and I asked my doctor why I was the only one in my family that ever got cancer. He said: "Because you are the only one that can handle it." I said "Right on." I'm still here at the moment, and my family still doesn't have cancer....so fight on, you are a survivor." Andre
