Hopefully this thread can just die a natural death after this post. Though it is interesting to me to read over to see where my head was at during some of this. I kind of have a 2 month hole in last year, with patches missing here and there. Turns out severe anemia isn’t good for your retention skills. My wife says I spent a lot of time just sitting and staring off into space, and sleeping.
Anyway, I have unassimilated from the Borg Collective. They took my port out yesterday, and my healing factor bit me in the butt, my flesh attached to the catheter so when they tried to pull it out like starting a chain saw, it was dragging my neck with it. Really uncomfortable, so they had to make another cut to get it to release.
I got to hear the nightmare story of the two patients he had that didn’t take their ports out for 5 years, he had to cut the catheter and go in later for open heart surgery to get them out.
Anyway, quarterly checkups for now, CT scan every 1-2 years, and I guess that’s it until it comes back. He hasn’t had anyone come out of remission since he started this treatment, but he’s only been doing it this way for a few years, and teh average remission is 10-15 years.
