    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have been finished with chemo now for four months. Looking back that was the toughest part of my life and I overcame it and I am now cancer free. I have weak moments where I reminisce and get choked up. Thinking about my wife and unborn child. I love everyday I can wake up and look at my beautiful wife.

    Removal of testicle

    Procedure or Surgery

    My first surgery was harder to heal from. I was bruised from my lower stomach to my upper thighs. This time around my surgeon was excellent. I literally had no bruising and my incision was perfect.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Internal radiation

    Radiation

    I had my lymphnodes in my back radiated after my first time around. The second time I cannot have anymore radiation and chemo was the only way for further treatment.

    Painless Experience: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Agree

    Weight gain

    Side Effects

    It is mostly just bloating from being pumped full of water and saline. The first three days I have gained around fifteen pounds of water weight.

    Doing chemo

    Decision Point

    I have a really good outlook. Because of my testicular cancer being classic seminomas I still have a 92-98% cure rate. I am one of the lucky ones.
