Hammerhead says thanks guys
Thank you all that posted well wishes to me in this
thread. It was great to read and very funny.
All your thoughts were appreciated.
I think I may have lucked out. The tumor was a stage 1 cancer. That means that they think the cancer cells were limited to the tumor itself. I'm feeling pretty good right now, I'm at home. Doctor said no lifting for a month or two, so I'm spending lots of time watching the tv. I'm finding it difficult to sit at my computer, as it makes the incision in my gut hurt a bit, so that's why I haven't responded to this string yet.
I'm seriously thinking about getting a 51-m 7700 so I can compute from the couch for the next month or two... That thing looks pretty impressive.
I see the Oncologist tomorrow, so I'll find out about the rest of the treatment. Whether or not they'll offer me chemo-therapy or not.
Thanks again to all, it really did make me feel better.
