Praying for you brother
Art Schlichter's cellmates and Mo Clarett's rugby team believe Ohio State always does things honestly.....
You are on my prayer list. I will get my church and family to pray! Godspeed! Go Dawgs!
Remember the Lord cares about the sparrows and he cares even more for you! Mathew10:29-31. Lord, enable 1eyedJack to find rest and perfect peace in You!
Thanks again guys. I am out of upvotes.
Sometimes we have to go through the valley to see the mountain top. gods plan is something we don't control. 3rd times the charm. you will overcome. in my prayers
Don't give up!!! Man, I know it's hard b/c I just received news that I'm in remission and I know what a fight it is but you can do this. Praying for you and your family.
Prayers for you as my father, who is 84 now, went thru this 8 years ago and he's doing and testing fine. He had his procedure done at Vanderbilt and they were fantastic. Pops, after much consultation, opted for the bag(not sure the correct term) instead of reconstruction. Obviously at his age, he wasn't going to be taking his shirt off at the beach lol. Learning the nuances of using the bag took a month or so but he has it down pat and yes it more than an inconvenience but he does everything now that he used to do, golf, fishing, etc....
He had 2 friends who opted for reconstruction and unfortunately they are no longer with us. Not sure if there's a correlation of bag vs reconstruction but we're so glad he opted for that procedure.
I know Pops would be more than happy to talk to you if you ever have any questions or concerns. He received calls of assurance from a guy who helped ease his anxiety and Pops has met with others that have gone thru the same experience and helped them thru some trying times. He's more than happy to pay it forward.
Please know you will be OK and please get back to me if you'd like to chat with Pops, he'd love to offer his experience and assurances that you'll be OK! :)
You can reach me if you like at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns. Skip
Cancer can't handle a DGD like you, man.
Sounds like Pops had the ileal urinary diversion with stoma.
I have been researching this for a year, since my previous treatments last summer, and from my research it appears that a man of my age (53) has a higher mean survival time with less serious complications, better continence, and higher quality of life with the orthotopic bladder substitute. And I think I will feel better psychologically without the bag and peeing normally.
Hey, they can actually perform it robotically using da Vinci (less invasive, easier recovery). That would be real cool if I qualify for that.
Tell Pops to give 'em hell, and I'm shooting for his title (84 yrs.)
1 round with Wegner's disease and 3 rounds with bladder cancer. I don't like to quit.
We will be praying for you!
Many prayers for you.
will keep you in my prayers. put your trust in the Great Physician. He can heal you.
Praying for you 1eyedJack!!! God speed to you! Keep your head up!!!
I'm sure you know that kind of attitude goes a long way in not letting this disease get you down Jack. My prayers are with you and your family at this time for another successful outcome. Just a visiting Gamecock wishing you nothing but success with your operation and a speedy recovery in the future. Been free now 7 years myself and the support you have here already amongst your fellow dawgs will be huge in your future. May God bless you and keep you in His hands starting as you start your February journey.
Keep your head up
Thoughts and prayers sent. Keep fighting!
