Hopefully the worst is over, its good that you should be able to recover from the cancer.

My grandfather is going through chemotherapy right now. Hes doing fine, he was on steroids for a year or so before.

My thoughts are with you.

I wish there was a button in the OP that allowed me to "Thanks everyone in the tread", but there is not so I will try to thank you all as the thanks button allows.

Being in the hospital for over two weeks was quite the exercise in patience (<-- understatment of the year), but it gave me the opportunity to really show the nursing staff and my surgeon how much I appreciated everything they were doing to help me. It also gave me the opportunity to visit with the patients on the floor who were worse off than me, and to bring a little hope and happiness into their lives as they were going through their trials.

There was an older gentleman (yes, I know it's hard to comprehend someone older than yer old Uncle Kreij) who was complaining about the hospital food after being there three days. I smiled and told him that for the last 16 days I had nothing but ice chips to wet my mouth (they did not want me to have anything by mouth), and that a simple bowl of creamed soup was like heaven to me. He got a sort of pained look, never complained about the food again and started visiting the other elderly patients who did not have many visitors.
I do believe the Lord and I won that round. :)

Thanks again, all ... and I'll keep you posted on anything new and will try to get back into my sections as time and recovery allows to help you guys where I can.
You really are a diamond. :toast: Even when you're very ill yourself, you've got time to help out others who are in a similar boat. Caring and totally unselfish, that's our Kreij. Infinite respect! :respect::respect::respect: :rockout: We should all aspire to be like you and I wanna thank you here for all the help and guidance you've given me over the last few months. :)

This is true. If one of the nurses are really hot you can always run a batch in the bathroom. ALWAYS makes me feel better. Now what I am about to say is a true story. I remember I threw out my back once to the point I couldn't walk. Doctors thought it might have been a knife wound I suffered when I was younger that had finally caught up with me. After a dozen scans and such they couldn't figure it out.

Doctors were "preparing me" for not being able to walk again without intense pain. People were crying and such. Not me. I was more mad at the bastard who stabbed me years before. Then this smoking hot nurse came in. I thought to myself "Walk or no walk shes getting F#Ked in my mind the second these doctors leave the room". After they left and I violated her with my mind the pain in my back started to go away. I can honestly say fapping allowed me to walk again.

I'm no doctor but from what I could tell the intensity of my "session" broke something lose in my back. Dunno. But its worth a try. Maybe the cancer will see what your doing and think "He knows we are trying to kill him and he don't give a f#$K! Look at him go?!" and it will just leave.
What an awesome story. :D A bit awful what happened, but what a recovery. Only you could fix your back with a PowerFap(tm)! :laugh: I'm not as surprised as you might think though, as doing this "exercise" releases a lot of endorphins and other positive chemicals by the body, which may help recovery in many subtle ways one isn't aware of. I'm really glad you got better and beat it. :toast:

And re your previous post: yeah, you wanna keep it light, take the piss, whatever. Happiness can really help in these situations.
