    Hope this all turns out well for you.

    I know it's easy for me to say, but try to not dwell on the worst possibilities. I was in hospital earlier this year and told me they had found I had a very nasty type of brain cancer that was a secondary tumour to one in the bowel. Months down the line after a lot of testing they found it was actually an infection in the bowel and a malformed blood vessel in my head.

    Easy to say but try not to worry, we always assume the worst.
    last week i went to see doc as my right bollock was hurting and felt like a lump ( me assuming nut cancer ) as it had been hurting some time but like most blokes its the old head in the sand it will go away.

    anyway had it looked at and turns out it was just inflamed veins apparently you can get varicose veins in the veins which hold your nuts in place.
    so anti inflammatory tabs and now all good.

    So for weeks I was shitting bricks over fuck all, let the docs do their thing you will be ok.

    Thanks to consoles

    My Mam had her Gaul Bladder removed a month ago after a year of constant problems with Stones, one of the many CT Scans she had also showed a shadow on Pancreas and her's was confirmed as a cyst . Hope it is a common thing related to Gaul Bladder/Stones . She hasn't had it dealt with yet but hopefully as it sounds very similar that is all yours is too.

    Had my endoscopy on Monday afternoon, what a nightmare, they stuck a canthor in my right arm gave me 7 injections, 10 minutes later im still wide awake with the surgeon having a puzzled look on his face, asking did the staff give me correct amount of drug,
    turned out the canthor had not gone into my artery only under the skin, next they rushing around to put a canthor in my left arm, 7 more injections & that was the last i remember,lol,
    so i dont get results to see what the next step for about 10 days but they did put a needle through my gut lining & drained a lot of fluid from he syst, that feels so much better already, if they cant remove the syst they say they will put 2 drain pipes from syst to the
    gut so when it gets to big it will self drain,
    The Surgeon was annoyed that this was not spotted 2 years ago when the blamed the gallbladder & removed it.
    so just have to wait to see whats next

    I've probably got to go for an endoscopy some time in the near future. The thought of the pipe going up my rear already didn't fill me with joy but reading that makes me really cringe.

    Hopefully this all gets sorted soon for you.

    thats the one, once knocked out you dont know its been done apart from sore throat and cramps from inflating me bowels afterwards, the scariest thing was when they spray a numing agent down the throat, feels like you cant swollow
