This is a blog by a very courageous man who inspires me. He is battling cancer and shares his struggle with honesty. I think you will be inspired by him too.
3 days ago, I had surgery – 3 days ago, I had a Radical Cystectomy – 3 days ago, I had parts removed from my body.
Per webmd.com –
Radical cystectomy is the removal of the entire bladder, nearby lymph nodes (lymphadenectomy), part of the urethra, and nearby organs that may contain cancer cells. In men, the prostate, the seminal vesicles, and part of the vas deferens are also removed.
I am not a good patient and I hate hospitals; I am doing my best and the recovery has started.
As I spend time in the hospital I remind myself the pain will pass and although I am missing parts, I am still me.
Life today may not be wonderful and full of rainbows, but it will be again soon.
This song by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole is a favorite of mine, it warms my heart and brings a smile to me.
