Good Morning to All.
I, Roland, has been asked about my medical condition. I have a few items, but nothing like our soldiers have. I will try to be short. Tests I have had include, Lung, Ct's, PET Test, Biospy, MRI, Ultra Sounds, blood, breathing treatments and others.
I have confirmed Non-Alcoholic Cirrhosis of the Liver, which due to my age is un-operable. I have stage 2 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Course of action to be determined.
After guickly putting on an extra 25 lbs of fluid, a Paracentesis procedure was performed. They removed about 3 quarts of fluid from my abdomen which had been around my organs. This fluid my return. This procedure could not remove the fluid in my lower limbs.
Said fluid was further tested and showed signs and cells which indicate that I have Leukemia, extent to be determined. Medicine given to help remove said fluid build up.
A persistent enlargement of the spleen, which goes probably with the Cirrhosis. Some fluid on the Right Lung, and the right diaphram is pushing up into the right lung area. Extent and treatment to be determined. I am and have been on courses of Steriods, antibotices, fluid type pills, and medicine to increase my ability to breath easier, along with 3 months treatment for Severe Bronchitis. Some less important things.
So as of today my weight has dropped a lot, my breathing is much better, I can move around much more without getting winded. Things seem to be looking better, and I am still waiting on doctors results. no explanation as to why all this in such a short time and at my age!
I need to thank Ruby for taking care of me for this past 6 months. I know it has not been easy. I love her and know God will Bless her.
Hope this helps explain things. I'm still here and kicking.....Roland
