Colonoscopy Day

Polyp 0116, originally uploaded by Buck Cash. Okay, so today I had my first ever colonoscopy. Seeing as how I’m 54 years old, it’s a common thing for guys my age anyway, but mine was triggered by something spotted on my recent PET scan, which was a follow-up to my Stem Cell Transplant for my …

March 22nd, 2004. Today was biopsy day for me at Washington Memorial Hospital, where a doctor, some nurses and a few technicians worked together to pull some pieces off Marvin to have a look at the little bugger. It had it’s ups and downs, but overall, I’d prefer not to have to do this very …

Rituxi-CHOP 4

Cancer Cartoon by Buck Cash

March 21st, 2004. Sorry for the late update, but I’ve been a bit out of it the last few days from the treatments, I guess. Especially the Prednisone. That stuff is just plain no fun at all for me. It doesn’t let me sleep more than a few hours at a time usually, and it …
