This last month I have been subjected to several medical tests and procedures in my ongoing quest for increased life expectancy. 2 days ago I had a Panendoscopy and the results were very encouraging. I have had 3 close encounters with the big C and it now appears I have beaten them all. The internal polyps have not returned, the Melanoma has not returned and the Paratoid gland was removed just in time while it was still pre-cancerous. My doctors are over the moon with the results and obviously so am I. The docs are very impressed with my strong immune system, blood chemistry and fast healing ability. When I had the Partial Paratoidectomy I was told that the facial nerves would take a year to reconnect. Instead it has taken less than 12 weeks. I have been invited to be a test subject for experimental drugs and treatments and I have accepted and signed the consent documents. So now I am an official test subject and carry a special card in my wallet in case I have to be admitted to a medical facility. I did not take this decision lightly but I want to help with medical research in any way I can. I am now happy to be known as “The Guinea Pig” (at least it’s more appealing than “Laboratory Mouse”) @drmilktruck : Jim I’m sending you a PM with some private info that you may find interesting.
