So, Xmas came and went. We had a nice time. But there was still something that was hanging over us.
The Orient beat Charlton on New Years Eve and I picked up two of my girls and we celebrated the coming of 2012 .
To be honest, I have often joked about the ‘C’ word in the past, but I still thought that that it was a cyst.
Years of liking Chris Morris helps you find humour out of anything.
So I went to the doctor (guess what he told me, guess what he told me). Actually I went to the hospital and I was shit scared.
My mum who is 80 was admitted to hospital at the beginning of the week. I did not tell her that I might have cancer (which I still did not think I had) Can I add another bracket? (Gonna add one anyway) (I did not want to worry her that her son may die before her)
SO……. Mum was rushed into hospital while I was contemplating the results of my tests.
Just before I was about to leave for the tests. My Mum rang me in tears and said she was in too much pain. I felt so helpless. But I did turn up after and help her out
First off. I was told to take off me clothes and put one of those gowns on, I was confused as I didn’t know which way to put it on. If I put it on in the normal manner , then they would not be able to look at at my man boob.
I asked the nurse and she said that it did not matter which way I put it on. I put the gown on and within seconds, one nurse had hold of me balls and the other was feeling me neck. In different circumstances that would be something I would pay money for!!!
I must admit, it was a strange sensation.
I then had a mammogram WOW. That was hard for a bloke .The mammogramist (?) said it was a challenge to do a bloke for that.
By now, my friends , I was getting scared , but I then had a scan and the Scan lady (do I call her a scanner? God knows) said that the trauma has not spread to my neck (which is nice). I asked her if I had cancer and she said that she could not confirm it.
Next, I had a ‘bite’ taken out of me nipple . In the cold light of day, I now realise that it was a biopsy.
You know what? I heard 3 people that were there saying that they were in the clear. One said that their sister was there for 8 hours and they told her she had a cyst.
I felt confident.
