Need to share with this group.
« on: October 17, 2020, 06:57:09 PM »
Im not running away from this, I feel better if it's out in the open. 


I have bad news to share. 


After couple months of discomfort swallowing, I went to my family doctor.  He scheduled a GI swallow test, which turned into a rush GI scope procedure.  Yeah, you know where this is heading.


They found a 3CM mass in my esophagus, near where the esophagus and stomach meet.  Biopsy was done, and it was confirmed.


So saw oncologist last Thursday to discuss things and the next steps.  CT scan is Monday to see if the cancer spread anywhere else.  Tuesday I see the radiologist, I know they want to start this ASAP.  Then back to the oncologist Thursday again for the CT scan results.


It has been an overwhelming last couple weeks to say it mildly.  My wife and I have done alot of praying and crying lately.  Yeah I'm freakin scared beyond scared.


Writing this is helping me cope,  so thank you for taking the time to read this.  I've been in the SHO community for 20 plus years, let me tell you it's a tight community, not matter how much we bicker. Just need the community behind me and my wife at this time.


God bless everyone

God knows I love me some sweet sweet Bri Bri action. I mean look, I even tried giving him a little tongue for Christ's sake.

But alas, this won't be the last finger he graciously gives me, that's for sure.

Brian my prayers are with you, and God speed for a quick and successful outcome in this next challenge life has thrown your way.

So sad to hear, but if there's anyone that's got this, it's you my friend.

Thanks guys.  Definitely been up and down last couple weeks.  Another busy week with CT scan, seeing radiologist, and back to the oncologist.  Hopefully will know more and when treatment will start. 


Going to the track Friday, but not to race.  Just to talk and hang out with my friends there.

I know itís easier said than done, but donít lose hope and keep a positive mentality. In January 2015 I went for a routine checkup and complained that after a cold where the glands under the jaw tend to swell, one of them didnít have the swelling go back down. The MD sent me for a biopsy and came back stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma. My old MD was pessimistic and all he said was rare cancer, no cure. My attitude was, Iíve had a great life, so be it. I got sent to a great hematology center and before the following summer I was full remission. Now 5 years later it is reclassified cured. It was a rocky road for 6 months but I believe my attitude helped the outcome.

Hey Brian!  Always looked forward to seeing your posts, but this is no way to do it!

So sorry to hear the diagnosis, and hoping the C is contained.

I have had a relative with metastasized cancer recover, partly due to their optimistic nature no doubt, but also due to the excellent care she received. Same with a friend who I could fairly say fought off an extreme case of colon cancer, again, due to excellent care.

Best wishes from me and the wife, you are always in our prayers.  Like you said the SHO community is tightknit, and we want you to WIN WIN WIN.  God Bless.

Will PM you separately.

I'm so sorry to hear about this ordeal Brian!
Prayers and thoughts are with you and your family at this fragile time. 
I'm hoping with much praying you shall overcome this. 
I would at least try to get a second opinion from a reputable Dr and another Ct scan IMHO!

Please think Positive and keep your chin up my friend. 
Due keep us updated on all counts.
Please feel free to contact me at anytime.  Z

Well news got worse.  Got the results from my CT scan.  The cancer spread and was found in some of my lymph nodes and 2 spots on my liver.   So this fight just got harder, but I can do it.  Requested my medical files, so I can send the John Hopkins in Baltimore.  Just taking it one day at a time for now.
