Not sure, but I doubt it goes to 3Z

What Typsy said  :thumbsup:

And at least it isn't stage 4 so he has a fair chance.  But probably best Nod avoids buying Turnip Futures

Anything to confuse and mystify you further  with levels, gradings , letters, roman numerals etc  lol:

As I understand it the a / b / c ratings are to do with the aggressiveness of the cancer cells  - so it would seem that with Nod the bastard cancer cells  are in the lymph or nearby tissue of his tumour. 

How is Nod doing with the treatment ??? 

The Man is also stage 3 - but during his op they also took out 48 Lymph Nodes in that area  eeek: and a small bite of his bladder .  eeek:   - the aim obviously to prevent further transmission .

4 months of chemo is due to end at the end of September  .  We are also likely to have scans this month to give us an indication of how successful this has all been - but signs are that it has been fairly successful.

The poor fella then just has to wait to go back in for another operation to have the stoma reversal  which was done at the time of his operation in April to give the resection of the bowel adequate time to heal and the superglue to work  lol:

What an ordeal

Hope the scans give good results

I have Googled it and he has not

He has been told that he will feel like shit soon for about a month or two.  He has been told to stop drinking and smoking  noooo: noooo:

The feeding troops are lined up but I fear he will be admitted for intravenous feeding. He remains in denial

Good luck the The Man :thumbsup:
