Have You Named Your Tumour?

Post by Fraser » Mon Jun 23, 2008 3:31 pm

I have!

I have decided to name my tumour, even though it was 100% resected, Dlyle. I guess if it returns I shall have to rename it Dlyal II.

Dlyle was a character in a movie called Basket Case. This was a cult movie of sorts that was released around 1985 whilst I was with the RAAF at Butterworth, Malaysia.

Dlyle was just a head carried around in a basket by his carer named Dwain, hense the title 'Basket Case', something I don't intend being.

I did read somewhere that naming your tumour could be theraputic. Will leave that to those with better incite than I.

Yes I have named my Grade 2 Astrocytoma ( Linda Blair) out of the movie the Exorcist because my hubby reckons I look like her when i have my seizures, Got to have some humour somewhere in this crazy world of tumours,no offence to anyone by the Linda remark.

My husband is scheduled for a prostate biopsy on Monday how is this done? I was not home when his doctor's office called to set up the appointment so I could not ask them. Where do they go in from? And will he most likely be awake or put under? And are there any kind of sexual or any other side effects from the biopsy? He has an elevated PSA level and a family history of prostate cancer so they are doing the biopsy.

When I was diagnosed with mine (Febrary 25th, emergency surgery to remove it February 28th), I named it the "stowaway", and on a few occasions I've referred to it in much less flattering tones, which is no less than it deserves.
