• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Grace under fire....

So glad to hear encouraging results. I'd missed your kind response in your Aug. 7 barrage of posts, haha. Sorry; to belatedly answer your question I had throat cancer (surgery, chemo, radiation) 11 years back and have stayed clear on that front.

Over the past six years I've instead been dealing with the negative effects of the treatment (specifically, the radiation) rather than any cancer. My jawbone weakened to the point where it simply broke (a "pathologic fracture," rather than a "traumatic" one), and was rebuilt with some hipbone and some ankle veins. The same radiation damage then caused the neck to not heal after the rebuild, so a second surgery replaced the neck flesh on that side with my pectoral muscle from my chest! A real pain in the neck! ;) That's why in any recent photos (like my avatar here) I'm wearing a scarf or whatever-- it's pretty gnarly looking and I don't like to scare children and sensitive adults. I should come with a trigger warning, haha.

But the important thing is we're still all above ground. Take care and give my regards to your better half!
Staying alive is the only game in town in this cancer dodge Brian.

And that takes one's life over, not a moan, just a fact.

I'm grateful to have a life to fight for, when boiled down to the last, this Lady is my life.

Here's to fighting on....

Stay well Brother.

Cheers Ren....we're a little confined to barracks at the moment as We adjust to the new chemo stuff, but it's going really well. So something nice just as soon as we can do it is a cert.
