The only thing ghosts fear…March 24, 2011
I wrote on Monday that very soon I would be having an endoscopy. “Very soon” turned out to be even sooner than I had anticipated – yesterday, in fact. The doctors I met with were concerned about a few things. Things like cancer.
Let me tell you, once your physician uses the word cancer, it’s all you really hear for the rest of a visit. “Blah blah blah cancer blah blah. Cancer blah blah blah blah.”
I was quickly scheduled for a EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) on Wednesday morning. The good news, thank God, was that the doctors found no cancer or precancerous evidence. I will need surgery, but frankly, even surgery sounds like good news when compared to cancer.
