Surgery
« on: April 24, 2005, 11:39:01 PM »
I humbly ask for prayers on behalf of my grandfather who will be having surgery Monday morning to remove something in his throat that I've been told may be cancer.  My grandfather can not often communicate his medical problems as he does not always understand what they are.  I fear that I am often sheltered from the truth by my parents when it comes to news like this as well, so I don't know quite what the situation really is. 

Though my postings are scarce, know that my unworthy prayers are with you all in any instances of affliction or joy you may face.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

See how faulty communication can be?  Apparently my grandfather had had only a biopsy done.  Lymph nodes are clear, no cancer, thank God.  But he will have to have a tracheotomy to remove his voice box.  My parents, my brother and I will most likely be making sporatic flights down to Miami within the next few weeks, as our schedules will allow.  Lord, have mercy on him and the rest of my family.

MsGuided ,

I am very happy about the hopeful results regarding your grandfather's tests.

My father had a surgery three years ago for breast cancer (have you ever heard about man patient suffering from breast cancer? I had not until then). He had lymph nodes also extracted along with the tumour. He does preventive medical therapy since then and thank God he is in very good health.

My father had cancer, the rarest (1 %) type for men. He had known the presence of the tumour for about 18 months, and in a medical check up the doctor erroneously diagnosed that he had nothing to worry about this specific tumour. Unfortunately he was wrong, and my father had to wait for several months until finally the tumour to be diagnosed as cancer. He had gone through the fear - hope - relief stages that all patients have to pass.

I pray that also your grandfather will be relieved soon from this ordeal.
