On Feb 27th I had surgery and had the right testicle removed along with the tumor. I have no blood markers for cancer. The tumor/mass was isolated within the testicle itself. I spent the night in the hospital and the last week at my grandmother's resting. I am back at home, I am on the same restrictions as a hernia patient. Right now I feel like I have been beaten half to death twice... I appreciate all the prayers. At this point I am healing, but it looks like I have radiation treatments ahead of me as a "just in case" measure. I have calls made to both the recommended dr, and another oncologist to setup appointments, and second opinions, etc. All this without income as I am still fighting SS Disability. Good Lord willin it will all work out.

Praying here too for your continued recovery, total healing, and that the pain will subside immediately. Also for wisdom for you and the medical personnel who are treating and advising you.

Richard, It is good that the mass was contained within the testicle. As you have seen that, surgery, is the small battle....the real battle is with SSI. Brother you are within my prayers for healing from the surgery and radiation plus relief from the SSI people....Paul
