Ain't no party like a PET scan party...

'Cause a PET scan party don't stop! I'm sitting in the chair waiting to be scanned. My oncologist bumped my PET scan up by 6 months because my tonsils were showing uptake.
If they are still showing uptake, I will have them cut out! Doesn't that sound like a shit load of fun?

Hi Ryan,

Good to have your scan brought forward to check what's going on.

I had my tonsils removed as an adult and it's not too bad. Bit sore for a week or so afterwards and you'll probably find ice-cream the easiest thing to eat but it does heal quickly.

Hoping you get good results

I don't know if I should be sad because you can't have the scan due to that swollen tonsils but you seem okay with everything. You are one funny and positive guy. :)

Hey Ryan,
My name is Liz and I have been reading your blog from time to time. I have not seen any new posts since January but I hope it's because things have been going really well for you.
That said, since your blog is a great resource for someone going through cancer I wanted to reach out to you to see if you were interested in a new online social support network (that I am the community manager of!) called I Had Cancer. It is a new and free social support network focused on connecting people based on experiences with cancer so that they can easily communicate with one another and share information. I would love to tell you more if you are interested, so please let me know! Because I was so struck by your writing I would love to send you an early-access pass with extra invites for others you may know going through this journey.

Either way, thank you so much for your writing. Take care and best regards. anyone would like info on I Had Cancer please email me.

YOU are so FUNNY! Can we be friends?

I was diagnosed with rectal cancer just 3 weeks ago. But after the initial shock and 'what now', that's when the fun began! Not the treatments, mind you, but stickin' it to an otherwise shocking and grim subject. There's a lot of good material to be found in rectal cancer.

My fiance is appreciative of my good natured humor, as are friends and family.

Congratulations on 4 years!
