Those that were around three years ago, this month, know what I went through then. My post from back then can still be found on this forum. This last weekend I experienced symptoms I hadn't since that time, night sweats and loss of appetite. I visited my regular doctor office on Monday and, after a blood test that set off all sorts of flags, went to my Oncologist office on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, my Oncologist recommended bringing me into the hospital, as getting the scans I needed would likely have been delayed until after the holiday on outpatient. Yesterday, I completed a PET and CT scan and confirmed "areas of concern".
I would still be in the hospital except that the teams I need for a biopsy are not in until next week. On Monday, I will be readmitted into the hospital and will likely be there for some time. I appreciate the support and well-wishes from you guys.

Shit time :/ shit place, makes one have a shit life :/. No one likes cancer or wants it. Hope and pray the doctors are doing their best to heal you legitimately, not just using you as a cash cow. Best of luck to you Aries

Hi, I don't know you but I'm sorry to hear this. A friend of mine is going through the same thing. My thoughts are with you, hope you get better soon.
| Monday, November 27, 2017 - 10:52 pm |
I am so sorry to hear about this. I think of you often, wondering how you are doing. Keep to your faith, because through God, anything is possible. You know this. Also, you are tough as nails. You beat this once, and you will again, if your cancer has come back.
You, your wife and family are in my prayers.
| Monday, November 27, 2017 - 11:27 pm |
Haven't gotten to know you personally but u have been a source of knowledge to others my prayers are with u, have this in mind there is nothing absolute nothing God cannot do, when He speaks history is set in motion v heard and seen powerful miracles of God, just v faith and get well soon.. Goodluck..

As planned, I have been here in the hospital since Monday. Haven't been able to move up my biopsy, they are catching up post-holiday. I am due for an endoscopy-type procedure tomorrow at 4pm to look at lymph-nodes around my liver and pancreas. Later this week I hope to know more about what I am facing and a treatment plan.
| Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 04:55 pm |
Please let me know if you need anything. Hugs!
| Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 05:17 pm |
They were able to move up my biopsy and it is now completed and I am back to my room. Results could take a week. Might be going home.
| Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 07:49 pm |
Wishing you the best

So, the biopsy came back without cancerous cells. I am not out of the woods yet though, as the symptoms I had and the scans were real. The new lymph nodes are relatively small yet, and biopsy options are few. I am being closely monitored this next month, with appointments every two weeks and new scans next month to see how the lymph nodes are trending.

That's good news so far.. keep it up!
| Friday, December 8, 2017 - 02:23 am |
Good news man.
| Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 12:23 pm |
Good news Aries.
I am happy to hear.
I hope scans will continue to come clean. Keep it up.
This is from the entire team here.

TO MICHAEL WILSON
I really hope that you are no older than 10 or 12 because you do not have a clue about life.
I have several friends who beat cancer and the most important things are positive attitude and family support.
4 years ago I was hospitalized with a 10% chance of survival and here I am.
Even though I didn't post it my best wishes went out to Aires and his family when I read this.
Get out of your bedroom and learn about the real world.
| Monday, January 15, 2018 - 05:33 am |
I echo everything John V said.
| Monday, January 15, 2018 - 05:02 pm |
Michael if I still had a country we would be going to war
| Thursday, January 18, 2018 - 03:40 pm |
Seems a little weird now but I had to do it.
I wish Aries the best and hope to see him back here and in good health as soon as possible.

I'm sure all the players here that like myself have had contact with Aries in the forum and game, wish Aries all the best for good health. Wishing you all the best, my "Brother" from another Mother. Get back here soon, W.S.
