Larry,

I'm NOT a doctor. Having said that though, I want to make an observation and tell you a story.

I thought about what you said about your SWIRTO (She Who Is Ready to Obey??), and it makes sense to me too. Little as I know, it seems to me that malignancy - at least the aggressive kind - is pretty easy to recognize. The cellular structure, nuclei especially is all messed up. Whereas a low-grade malignancy is harder to figure out. And even IF that's the case, it's almost as good as benign! (Which it could equally well be anyhow.)

Now the story. My friend, you know Mr. "Ask me About my Stud Fee"? The Chickasaw individual...He had a tumor removed from very much the same location, very much as you described - much larger and stranger and all over the place than expected. Also very hard to diagnose histologically. They too said they had never seen anything like it (in fact, I think it's pickled somewhere as a museum piece). Nearest they could finally come up with, was to say it was a (very) rare kind of lipoma...They thought. That was ten years ago, and he's fine - physically anyhow...(mentally, he's so far Right he's nuts, even by Rush Limbaugh standards). So maybe it's an Injun thing!

P.S. Do you think your tumor can still feel while it's being dissected?

Larry,

I'll bet even folks who rarely visit the forum nowadays still remember those witty retorts, the technical smack-downs, and even Luann's legs. This forum has your stamp all over it and it is a better place for it.

And hey, if you can survive being run over in downtown Atlanta, this is just a pinprick! Get well soon!

I want to thank each and every one of you for such wonderful words of encouragement, and concern. I am truly humbled. Ringer, I had forgotten all about getting run over by that car... eek all I can say is I faired much better tackling a car than I did tackling a knife. But I'm not the first person to get cut on, and I won't be the last, so I won't whine about something like that. I just want to know what the final story of it all is, and get back to normal.

Again, thank you all. Through all the fighting and snipping we do here, the fact remains this group is a class act of people, every one of you.
I am honored you count me as one of your tribe.....

Actually, we do have a few who are of the Fugawi Tribe. They don't realize it enough to ask the question though...... It gets entertaining at times though, reading what the Fugawi Tribesmen write. They can't even figure out what's happening today, yet they think they understand what happened the day the trip started..... wink

Larry,

Haven't been in the Coffee Room in a while. Sorry I'm late. Get better, and let us know how you are getting on.

Can't keep a good man down, and all that.

Larry,

I (almost) hate to say it, but I'd been missing your presence here and over at R.M.M.P. It's been noticeable. Found myself thinking, "Where's Larry when you need him?" I thought maybe you were off on vacation. I'm sorry to hear about your ongoing ordeal and wish the speediest and fullest of recoveries.

Rick W.

Dearest Larry,

I just read your account of your surgery. I wish you the speediest recovery and the kindest of diagnoses.

As an aside, a number of years back, I went through a surgical biopsy that recovered a confounding mass. Despite my surgeon's ashen face, the result was treatable. While I've been followed closely during the intervening decades, and occasionally have been "sampled" to check for problems, all parts of my body are still accounted for. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you the same good luck and a return to glowing health.

Then come back here. We need you!

All of the best, Lucy

Wow Larry -

Been at a conference last week, and still on holiday in Toronto as I write this, so this is the first that I've heard of your experiences. Hope all gets better. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sorry I'm late to this thread...

Larry, you are to be admired; I would be a wreck.

A couple of years back I registered with three different dentists in about as many months because I needed an itty-bitty tooth out and backed out of all the appointments I made.

Still have the tooth. Get well soon.

Dear Larry,

I am sad to hear that you have met such a difficult moment on your impetuous journey.

I hope the warrior in you finds a space to go through this in peace and trustfulness.

You have many friends who love your sincerity and richness.

I am one of them and will be thinking of you till I hear that everything is OK again.

smile wink

Hello Jodi,

I have been atravelling and I've been aliving.

I had surgery too last week. And I am home again and feeling well and back to work.

I needed to think things over. I have thought things over a lot.

Plus ca change et plus c'est toujours la meme chose

(the more things change, the more they are the same)

All my regards to all my friends on the forum.

I'll be back.

It's not a threat : it's a promise.

smile
