Well, I just got back from two days at the VA medical center in San Francisco. I had a PET scan done on Tuesday morning and met with the surgeons later that day, the official report was not back from the PET scan so the doctor looked over it with me and thought everything looked good, my EC was or is very small and the operation will take care of it. I spent the rest of the day having all the preop stuff done for my surgery. This morning during breakfast I received a call from the doctors assistant stating that the official PET scan report had came back and there is a mass in my neck, I had complained about my left ear hurting, well after a bunch of more test today I have cancer in my tonsils. So next week instead of having an Eshophagectom. I am having my tonsils removed for biopsy. One of the medications that I take for my kidney transplant rejection is CellCept, which causes Lymphoma. So now I have to wait to have the esophagus surgery done until I go through chemo and maybe radiation. I had great service at the VA medical center in San Francisco; I don’t think I could have had so many test done in such a short term at a private or public hospital. I think I will take the kids to school in the morning and pull my snowmobile out of the trailer and head to the mountains, I need to escape reality for a few hours at least.
