Why would anyone want to go abroad on holiday?

All the best. Terrible about car parking charges at hospitals.

Well basically just confirming what i knew, no more scans unless I get symptoms, the surgeon gave me better odds of surviving the op at 50/50, but reckoned any one of many complications would finish me off, the cysts are on the cusp of turning cancerous at 2.1cm, I could survive longer without a op, how long ??, he would not put a number on it apart from slipping up a little saying 1 to 3 years, chemo would be my only option and that only gives you 6 more months, I wont be doing that, so, bottom line is I just do what I do and whatever nature has in store for me will be the final outcome, wether it is many years or fewer, it is what it is and I will try to put it to the back of my mind. 🤞

Not a great place to be Bob and I seriously admire your spirit.

I do also very much agree with you about what will be will be. I have known several people who have been diagnosed with cancer and given a very short time to live and proved all the doctors wrong.

You are not even at the point so who knows? You very well may outlive the rest of us on the forum.

Mind you’ll be a bit lonely with nobody answering your posts :shock: :shock: .

hugs and respec’

Jane 😘

As the specialist said to me "Don't worry about it Stuart, you'll in all probability die of something else".

I retorted "Hopefully, old age".

:lol: :lol: When I was a kid and someone died I’d ask my dad what they died of and his response was always: “shortage of breath”.

:lol: :lol: :lol: A real dilemma Bob!

Could you decide which one and then keep changing your mind to confuse yourself? This could buy you 50 years if you get it right.

Blimey, Bob, according to statistics you’ve been living on borrowed time for the last 40 years. Another 20 should be a piece of cake :D

Bob
As my dad says better to die of something, preferably living a happy life until then.
You have the right attitude we will be laughing with you at this post in 4 years.

Indeed Mike, tho there are a few older than me 😨 ... you seldom get to meet other cf'rs as on arrival you are put in a room and the doctors and nurses etc all coms to see you, you leave by a different way you came in too, if you need to go for the puff tests...then they clear the corridor and it is like a mi5 operation....cross infection is the enemy, but I find it way over the top, whilst in hozzy I met a few, mostly early 20's, but one guy who is 46 and a Dr (dermotology ) ....we keep in touch, really nice guy who actually lives 10 mins from me, he told me that I am the first ever cf'r he has spoken too, I stood at his room and we blethered....and he would do the same, every time his mum n dad were up visiting, they would stop with big smiles looking in at me...and I would wave back....I think it gave them hope to see a 62 yr old...and that is a good thing, same with the younger ones I managed to talk to... they looked a little bewildered, but I could see the hope rise in them...that made my day
