Lol. I probably posted late. I work over night now. I just wanted to hurry & post it. Been trying to say something since August. But never had any answers till now. I hope it’s the last one too. He can’t get surgery but they are pretty positive radiation got it.
Only time will tell. Good news for your mum!!

Oops I meant to write I hope your cancer hasn't spread. Sorry I didn't catch that typo. I hope the chemo goes get all of it. Thank you. I'm still trying to find out why I'm losing scary amounts of weight, my hair is falling out, always short of breath and weak. I have my yearly pulmonary function test this month and a stress test at the end of the month. I had blood tests for my endocrinologist earlier this month. I have to wait until October 28th for a colonoscopy because my GI is so backed up. It takes so long for everything here due to the doctor shortage and covid has made it worse.
