    Great news for you shamus
    I know the stress you must of been under
    Make sure you do all the followup tests
    I was not so lucky as I have stage 4 lung cancer which is terminal and it is hard to deal with but i have made peace with it. I was diagnosed in July 4 2003 and given 3 to 6 months but with my treatments they think i mught now have a year.
    They did not catch mine in time and thats why i say to you do all followup tests and keep checking becuse if they get it early emough they can help you
    Wishing you all the best and my prayers are with you !!!!!!!!!

    Nice result - I know that I reduces the pressure.

    I had CT Scan and X-ray to determine the cause of mean long term case of sinusitis -- very close to the brain those sinus.

    Results are clear --- now I have to work on getting rid of the related symptoms.

    I'm very glad to hear such good news from you, Paul!

    While an emphysema still isn't funny, the relief from this threat of cancer must be a bright ray for your future!

    I bet your joy at modeling just has risen a notch or two!

    That's great Shamus, thank God!

    Amazing how, if you were just told you had asthma and emphysema you'd be upset, except that you were told it was worse. Talk about counting your blessings!

    Shamus,

    Glad to hear you are clear, I was elated when they told me they had nuked my tumor down to nothing. Had it on the epoglottus from smoking for over 50 years, they only down side is they nuked my voice box and my voice is like a whisper and I cant taste a damn thing. Had 48 sessions some twice a day, what a drag. Havent tasted any thing since Aug 1 of last year. But it is better than the alternative.

    Emphyasema is no better and some what worse in the last year, huff and puff like one of your logging tea kettles. Suckng o2 24/7 at 3 liters. Keep in there plugging.

    Paul........Glad to hear your good news
    As a Colon Cancer survivor I know just how you must have felt, Had an X-ray of my lungs a little while ago where they found a dark spot on one of my lungs, What a fright ,as I had lived for a few years on an Asbestos mine property. After a lot more test they found it to be scar tissue from an old chest infection.What a relief ,I do have other chest problems due to the 40 years I spent underground on the gold mines
    Best of luck for your future health, looking forward to your pictures of your new project
    God Bless

    Good to hear the news Shamus. I can relate. My wife has had a bit of a scare recently. Turns out she has a blood clot in her lung. Almost killed her! She was in the hospital for 16 days and just got home a few days ago. Now she is on warferin and has to go for blood work every other day. She is doing better now and has stopped smoking too!

    Your good news gives me hope.

    I'm glad to hear it my new friend.
