As I continue to be re-reading my book that I wrote four years ago; it’s a personal journey of my everyday experience with treatments that I received in Mexico. In relations to the current series of BELIEVING,10-2-12; BIOPSY AND RESULTS
BY DANIEL MALIN
Before I start with my situation, I want to remind you that it’s October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I cannot express enough to do your homework and research. It’s not your doctor’s option, but yours. Do you want to be cut, burned, or poisoned with chemo, or do you want to do something less invasive? Either way it will cost you, with coverage or not. Insurance usually does not cover all of the procedures. I am glad my wife and I chose the direction we did.
First of all, I wish to say that I am recovering from a hernia procedure and was unable to blog until now. Since it's now football season, I am going to compare my life and my condition to a game, and at this time I have made it to the first down. The second one is the day that I had my biopsy.
It was not that long until they called me back and the physician prepared me for the procedure in his office. He gave me a local and started the nightmare. If anyone ever had a prostate biopsy, you know that it's not something that you look forward to having.
Well, I did not think it would ever end, but the doctor took twelve tissue samples, and then said he was finished. The nurse came in and stood me up--the room was moving and I was feeling as if I was going to pass out. She helped me back to the seat and got a cold cloth to put on my forehead and gave me a cup of water. The doctor stuck his head back in the room to say that sometimes this happens and I could stay until I felt comfortable in leaving; but the office would close in twenty minutes. Sherry came in the room and asked for Coke to give me a sugar rush, which would help me not to be so spacey. It did the trick; I was ready to go home.
IN THIS FAST - PACED LIFE
In this fast-paced life, we forget to stop and admire the wonderful things around us. We are living in a beautiful world but forget to appreciate the beauty of it. Let’s, stop and take the time to notice our surroundings around us today and admire the beauty. #fastpaced #life #admire #wonderful #around #living #world #beautiful #appreciate #notice #surroundings #today #inspirational #motivational
We made another appointment a week later for the results. It was as if I went a couple of yards, and then the third down! This time we waited twenty minutes before I was taken back.
The physician came in the room with his computer and said, “You are here for the findings of your biopsy?” YES! Well, he came right out and stated that I have prostate cancer. “You know all my patients have this shocked expression on their face when I tell them this, but I always let them know the procedures and percentages of what can be done he said. This was not new to Sherry and me, for two years ago, we went through this with her. He proceeded to go on with the options and stated that two out of the twelve samples were cancerous. He gave us information and he would see me back within two weeks. I looked at the info and it was cut, burn, and chemo--not what I wanted. I called Sherry’s doctor in Mexico, Dr. Perez, and he spent time on the phone explaining the different procedures that were there and the best option for me. It’s similar to the one Sherry had using her own cells. The steps before going to Mexico will involve current blood work for them to review before treatment begins.
Meanwhile, I had my left hernia repaired last Thursday using the good old American way. I had to go to another doctor, for my family one and the urologist couldn't treat me for this condition.
The next step was a general surgeon. The big day is finally over and healing is starting. He could not do laparoscopic surgery; he had to cut me open. The stitch mark is three inches long. It’s been a slow recovery. The tackle was a hard hit, but I'm going to get back up to fight for a touchdown.
My plans are that once my hernia repair heals, I will be going to Mexico for the final play the touchdown. Right now, I am going to continue with my struggle with the journey to completion.
FIND THE BALANCE
While finding your JOMO often involves saying no and staying in when you’d previously be heading out, make sure you don’t neglect the side of you that needs other people.
You still have responsibilities to your job, your family, your friendships and yourself. Ensure that you are filling your life and keeping it balanced.
Recapping the meaning of JOMO- the joy of missing out on the things.
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. So, I’m going to start blogging on a new herb, LAVENDER.
When was the last time you smelled lavender? Not lavender-scented candles, body care products, or potpourri; but real lavender? If you have savored the aroma of lavender, then you’ll know it has as many different scents as there are plants! A wild shrub growing on a sunny hillside in the rocky soil of southern France will smell different from the flowers in your garden. The conditions in which lavender grows and the type of plant all contribute to a unique fragrance.
While we know that eating or drinking things can have an effect on our health and how we feel. Lavender shows us how the simple act of smelling something can dramatically alter our mood be reducing anxiety, pain and promoting sleep. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing the recipe - LAVENDER BATH SALTS.
Until Wednesday, in this fast-paced life, we forget to stop and admire the wonderful things around us. We are living in a beautiful world but forget to appreciate the beauty of it. Let’s, stop and take the time to notice our surroundings around us today and admire the beauty.
