yay!

well, they don't think mr. punxxi has cancer, just a reoccurance of something he had years ago called sarcoidosis. it is something that mimics cancer but is not . personally i think they should do a little more testing, but hey, i'm nobody.

w00t! How is he FEELING though?

He is unlucky normally you have it once and never again.

It's not easy to figure out either, the symptoms vary a lot and often look like Lymphoma etc.

Hope it isn't serious and that the treatment helps him feel better soon.

What a relief!!!!! That "word" is a very scary one. I have to go tomorrow to the center for more tests. . . ugh, I'm sure I'm fine, but its always scary.

Well, watch your Mr. Punxxi and I would say golfing is a good sign!

wow - I just looked up sarcoidosis - that sounds serious enough in itself.

They refused to give me the test today that would diagnose a form of breast cancer should it be there despite the fact that this form (IBC) does not show up on ordinary mammograms. Boob looks like picture of early stage. Go figure.

I see the hematologist tomorrow who also specializes in cancer treatment - i'm going to ask him what he thinks.....

Wonder who made doctors God - instead of mere humans who "practice" medicine - I think I might sort of understand some frustration you are feeling????
