    From one old ___ to another.

    Keep up the Good Work and recoveries.  But no more surgeries, please.  Glad you are celebrating.

    Hugs, donna_lee

    Congrats! I hope it's all

    Congrats! I hope it's all clear sailing from here on out. I gave up on tracking mine; I think I've had nine surgeries. But only four for cancers, so that's sort of a win!


    Nesting fail and I give up!

    Happy birthday

    Well done! You were one of the first to encourage me after my diagnosis back in 2013. I was in despair but your story gave me hope which is what I really needed at the time. I am so happy to be here to let you know I had my annual check up today and all is well. So it is 8 years for me and counting. Thank you Iceman for just being there for me and so many others over the years.

    Always glad…

    ...to hear such good news, especially from one of our "elder statespersons." And a most happy birthday as you begin another healthy year. Take care ~

    Been a long time since I visited and so glad to see you are still here with advice and encouragement. I was just telling someone how important this board was to me when John (one putt) was diagnosed with stage 4f kidney cancer in 2011. While I lost him five years ago, his autopsy reflected he had no active cancer cells in his body at the time of death. I attribute that to a wonderful doctor (Dr. Hammers) and the information so generously shared on this board. Thank you for your part Iceman.

    Will trade

    Medical hisyories  to be 40 years younger.

     No fun being an old fart or having a pretty doctor 1/2 my age taking out my galbladder on New Year's Eve.
