Hi Yunikat. I just wanted to let you know that I’m leaving this account on help.com because I’m pretty sure that my parents have figured out that it’s me… If I make a new account, I’ll let you know. :(

I’m still waiting for a diagnosis! Nothing is clear yet.
After the first lung biopsy histology (stationary at the hospital) I had to make a second one (ambulant at the same hospital), because they told me that they couldn’t find any significant cells yet. And recently they told me, even with the second one they couldn’t find any.
And this despite of the big space-consuming lesion in the lung (which is very good visible in the lung x-ray).
They said also that the histology of the surgically removed cells from the cerebellum don’t show any clear results.
Seems to be a mystery …
(But the oncologist told me, that cancer cells know multiple ways to disguise.)
Maybe I have to endure a third lung biopsy, this time made from outside, CT-guided through the thorax to check also the lymph nodes near the lung.
Until now the oncologist is clueless and he cancelled the first meeting which was scheduled for yesterday.
They made the first two biopsies across the airway deep down to the lung with needles and forceps to get cell samples.
Beside the side effects (some small local lung injuries for which I’ve to take antibiotics, and a heavy, but now decreasing cough which I’ve never had during my whole smoking life) I feel very well!
A short information for my friends about my current situation
(And, sorry, this is a general message; I’m not able yet to send individual messages to each of you.)
In the morning of Monday March 19 fits of dizziness started in a row. I wasn’t able to stand or walk without vomiting. My first idea was: influenza (because that days we had influenza high season here). And my wife and me had to ask for a domiciliary visit of our general practitioner, because I wasn’t able to visit him. But no fever, and normal blood pressure. So he called the emergency room (ER) of the next hospital and they come for me, transported me lying (!) to the ER.
There they made a genral check again and didn’t find anything — before they started a first computed tomography (CT) scan. The CT showed an incident in my cerebellum. (The cerebellum is responsible for the fine motor skills.)
But because they haven’t a neurological department, the ER transported me further to the neurology of the university hospital. And after some more clinical diagnostics (including MRI, X-Ray etc. — the whole programme) it was clear: I had what they call a “space-occupying lesion” in my cerebellum (less mealy-mouthed: a tumor); type of tumor and cause still unknown. But to make a brain surgery was urgent.
The surgery happened Friday 23, made by an excellent neurosurgeon and without any single harmful secondary effects to my brain or my locomotor system — just great!
Unfortunately the histological result showed that this tumor was a metastasis of a quite big primary tumor found in a part of my lungs, confirmed by an additional Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and a lung biopsy.
The fact is: It’s a metastasizing lung cancer — but still treatable.
(And yes, I’m a heavy smoker. But b.t.w. not all smokers get lung cancer and not all lung cancer patients are smokers.)
Thursday 29 my hospital stay ended.
Next week I will have a first meeting with the oncologists. The further treatment (probably with chemotherapy) will start after, and presumably in an ambulant manner.
You have to know that I’m in a very good mood, really! I’m not sad, not glum, and not quarreling with my fate at all! And I have no problem to talk about this disease. I take it as it comes, and I have also a wonderful support by my family and friends living here.
I guess I will not come back to help.com so often as before, but I will!
I thank all of you who enquired, and I wish you all the best, because: Things always seem to happen when you least expect them.
P.S. 1 The best joke is my avatar picture, no? Like anticipated somehow …
P.S. 2 You may show this message also to other people who ask after me; I’ve no secrets.
Was talking about Portugal. Specifically the priest of my hometown. The old one died a few years ago, and the new one was a young handsome guy in his late 20’s. Nice guy to talk with about anything.
At first he did not want to go there because the house he was supposed to stay in was in bad shape. People got him an apartment and a brand new SUV. Then they built him a damn nice house. Had lots of young girls there with a crush on him. And don’t forget those common two week vacations all around the world! I should have definitively become a priest LOL
I’m glad you are not very sensitive on religion. I respect people’s beliefs but also make some jokes that some people don’t take well (such as the one about beer in heaven).
Oh, I got it now. It seems you’re screwed until you find a new inexpensive place you like then. But yeah, I’d probably do the same you are doing, try not to see her too much. Maybe meanwhile she finds someone else to bother, or is it to much to ask? lol
No problem, I’m doing the same you are. Plus the fridge started beeping now and I can’t figure out why, it’s driving me nuts!
