I had my 9 year check up last week for my eye cancer. I had a CT that showed my liver is stable, but showed the pesky node in my back continues to enlarge very slowly. So, I now will need a PET in the next month or so. I also saw the eye muscle specialist to see if anything can be done about my double vision which is caused from my inital treatment for eye cancer. This specialist was a hoot! I had a 3 hour appointment with him and his staff. The outcome? The double vision can not be corrected. So, I ordered a blank lens for my glasses yesterday to elimiate what little vision I have left in my treated eye (VERY little vision, just enough now to make eveything double). I also met with my ocular oncologist. He did ask me if I just wanted to have the eye removed. He has never offered me this option before. It is something I will consider. All of these tests are done a distance from my hometown. I have identified a local oncologist (liver specialist) who will order the PET locally. She may also add a lymphoma oncologist to the never ending list of doctors.

NINE years, Dave

Wow, I can hardly believe it!

My Grandfather had a glass eye (remembered from 1950)
It was the thrill of my young life when he would take it out.

Whatever they would put in to help you look more normal
probably would not be glass. His bothered him so that he
finally had the eyelid sewn shut.

Only passing on thoughts.
Glad that it's been 9 years.
