I’m back

15 years.

It’s been 14 years and 11 months since I got the hodgkins diagnosis. 10 years of being followed. But after 10 years, it’s “have a great life” from oncology. Until...

 St Patrick’s day 2019, I had a stuttering lacune stroke. Kind of like a TIA, but somehow different. Spent 2 days in ICU, but no real after effects. But I did have several CTs and ans MRI. From those, they saw a large lymph node in my chest. Suddenly, the neurologists who had put me in ICU were much more concerned with me seeing oncology. About a week later, I went back to my oncologist, for the first time in 5 years. I had told him I never wanted to see him again. Alas, here I was. Boo! After a PET and another CT, it just the one mediastinal node. So i had a biopsy of the node in the middle of my chest. Not nearly as easy as the supraclavicle node. I should have results later this week. But everyone is treating me like it’s a relapse.

After 15 fucking years!
