My Grandpa was diagnosed with lung cancer at the beginning of the summer. No big
suprise there, he smoked for about 50 years. But today he was suppose to have sugery
to remove the cancer. But the part that SUCKS is that the cancer
was more advanced than the doctors thought. So all that they did today was cut him
open and sow him back up again, without doing anything. Before they diagnosed him, he
had four surgeries that were suposed to tell whether or not he had cancer.The first
three came back negative, no cancer. Then the fourth one came back positive, he had
cancer. The doctors thought that they had caught it early, so they said he was lucky.
But, as it turns out, he wasn't very lucky at all, because they said that if he
didn't have radiation and chemo therapy soon, that it would spread farther than it
was now, and that would eventually paralyze his diaphram, and he wouldn't be able to
breath anymore then. But right now he is in the Hospital because he has to recover
from the surgery.
So I have lost ALL confidence in modern medicine.
I am VERY pissed off at the world at the moment.
So if you have ever known anyone that has had cancer, please comment below. Please do
NOT comment if you are going to tell some negative story or say anything negative at
all. I really need some cheering up right now. T_T
