Doctors Called It Cancer. I Called It A Challenge.
By Cancer Survivor • October 25, 2013
This was me two years ago, looking pretty haggard after a 6-hour surgery. Why did I have surgery, you ask? In Oct 2010 I was diagnosed with Stage III Testicular Cancer. I had five surgeries and three months of chemotherapy - My last round of chemo was actually on Dec 31st. In this surgery, they had to remove two teratoma tumors located between my spine & the body's two main blood vessels. Only 1 surgeon in the state was willing to perform this surgery due to the location of these tumors. This was the moment I was 100% rid of that pussy Cancer!
The gnarly incision they had to make. Patched back together with glue. That brown patch is my pain meds being pumped directly into my abdominal area....not sure exactly where it goes but hooray for morphine! Unfortunately I wasn't able to eat for three days. I could only have ice chips, and gargle water.....lame.
This is my amazingly awesome wife and kids, who stuck with me and kept me positive during chemo and all my surgeries. I don't know what I would've done without them!
My beautiful wife and I now, 2 years Cancer-free! I just wanted to share my story and tell people to stay positive and never ever give up - even if the odds are against you!
