Update:some sad and good news


i am writing this from the internet cafe in the hospital.

some sad news this time

last week i heard that my tumor was not a good one
but a evil one that is aggressive and growing fast.

i had to move to a different hospital, which is more specialized in this kind of things

tomorrow the surgeons and doctors will have a meeting about me (and other patients)

where they discuss what they should do with it

one of the possibilities is that a part of my leg is going to be amputated and that i get a prosthetic leg

because Chemotherapy is not possible because the tumor destroyed some muscles and such

and there's not enough healthy flesh left

but im going to fight really hard to defeat this tumor/cancer

the good news is that they did not found any Metastasis

i think that I or my Dad will post my new address soon so you can send some cards.

Greetings from the UMCG(University Medical Centre Groningen)

Dirk.

Oi Dirk,

My husband told me about your tumor.
I read a lot of books about different kinds of cancer. Maybe it is the fear of getting it, and the strenght people who have it, that makes me so interested.
The cancer u have is one i have never heard about. The way you got it, is bisarre.
I hope you get through it and I hope the road is bearable 2 beat it for u and yer family.
We'll think of u and follow your stories on the blog!
The Best.

Dirk, I watch out your blog daily to have fresh news of you.

Hope you could keep your leg, and that doctors mistook about the tumor/cancer.

Keep on living.

Hi Dirk,
It would certainly suck if they have to cut off part of the leg but it does sound that you were lucky that they found it in time. It sounds like you had a similar situation to what happened to Bob Marley but he never went to a doctor after hurting his ankle & the cancer wasn't found & ended up spreading. I hope you get well soon.

Remember to do not accept pessimistic thoughts. Things will go just fine at the end.

Never give up,is really good for there is not metastasis!
I wish the best luck,and i am praying in god for you,i dont know you ,i am new here,but this is more than sympathy!

BEST WISHES,and never forget KEEP FIGHTING!

Regards from a greek,who was "dead" for the doctors 8 years before,but god my mother and one of them said no!
I had nothing to say in that time because i was in a koma for 3 days suffering from herpis engefalitis[a kind of virus in to the brain],plus eliasis [strike in the head from the exposing to the sun!]

So only god will say yes or not!
