Went for the 6 months follow up for my brain surgery recently and learned that the MRI showed the tumor was all gone and no need to see the surgeon again until next year. No cancer involved.

My only ongoing issue is lack of feeling in my right hand due to being tied down on it for 12 hours during the surgery.

Thanks @Bigun , @Sanguine @Freya and a whole big passle of others out there.

I was out/in for a biopsy this AM. SINCE, this stuff inside Me managed to Kill the last two chemo drugs we set on them rather than the other way around,. . . . .

The think is Maybe it mutated to a diff cancer from the prostate it started as and We got us the perfect mix in a jug already, right on the Shelf for That one!
Means a lot.

My 'Viking Hunter' High Adventure Alternate History Series is FREE, ALL 3 volumes, at most ebook retailers including Ibooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and more.

In Vol 2 the weapons come out in a winner take all war on two fronts.

Vol 3 opens with the rigged murder trial of the villain in a Viking Court under Viking law to set the stage for the hero's own murder trial.

Since I was never asleep during Friday's biopsy, I noted both Docs doing it getting excited.

Theytold me my lymph sys is badly infected with cancer. My legs have been inflated like This at least 4 or 5 times over the last 30 years, and then come down again.

So, either Sombodie's guessing wrong, or I may be something New to the mix!

They asked me afterward if I had ever had cancer before, and my swelling is going down.

@To-Whose-Benefit?

I ain't no doctor and don't even play one on teebee,but you just described the symptoms of lymphoma . How do I know this? I know it because it is the type of cancer that I have. In my case,it was in my groin (swelling my legs),my stomach (bloating my stomach and making it hard to breathe because of the pressure on my lungs and diaphram),and in my chest (causing me to have 2 quarts of water drained from my right lung every 5 or 6 days while trying to get this all sorted out).
