I remember Blatz Beer commercials on the Radio
Oh yes, something else we did yesterday. I scheduled some surgery on my neck (I hope). The skin cancer that was found last year at the VA is now scheduled to be removed. The VA must still be backlogged, I am scheduled with a local Dr..
To be honest, this surgery worries me. Not that I expect any bad results from this session, but the future. I have friends who have had one ‘skin cancer’ removed and since that time have had ‘MANY’ removed. My mind tells me that many of these operations are not necessary for an 80 year old person. The one I am having removed is at least 20 years old. If anything that pops up now lasts 20 years it will be on a corpse. What I am saying, AND IT IS AN OPINION, I think doctors continue to find something to do to your body for the money that accompanies the ‘session’.
During the old folk’s session at Hardees Monday AM, I asked if anyone at the table had had the pleasure a skin cancer removed, they ALL had. I asked, ‘after the first how many afterwards?’ They averaged at least one a year. Some were scheduled again soon.
Too me that is too ‘unusual’ to be real. DO ALL OF US old people HAVE SKIN CANCER THAT IS LIFE THREATENING??????
I sat right in the doctor’s office (last year) and he told me he was 4 months behind. He said, “Don’t worry about that Basal Cell, it is not life threatening, very slow. Don’t even worry about it. I will get to it next year, if not it still is no problem.” SOOOO in my mind I am saying, “Then why the heck am I here?”
I do know why I was there yesterday, because that ‘spot’ is driving me crazy itching.
