My cancer story Sept 8 2015


Thyroid cancer surgery. I notice a lump on my neck awhile back .ok about 4 years ago in 2011 and I didn’t do anything about it for a while..And then everyone I know start to notice it and kept telling me to have it look at by my doctor and again I didn’t get it look at. and my family and friends kept saying things like why haven’t you seen the doctor and I kept telling them that I was taking care of it and again I did not. So then one day we / my girlfriend and I went to a party at a friend house and there something was said to me about the lump on my neck. That was in august 2015. So now I ask my doctor if he would take a look and of course I had to have a biopsy done at this time. I was told that I had thyroid cancer all over my neck inside wow. for the first time in my life I was so scared. So I decided to have the surgery it was pretty big surgery it was a massive surgery it took my surgeons nine hours to do the surgery. AT The University of Miami in Sept 8 2015. It was bad four weeks and three surgery later. and I had been code blue two times.they had said i would not make it. I lay in a hospital bed for four weeks. And with some major problems with some bleeding of one of my vein bursting in my neck I saw myself dying not once but twice. So for those of you who think that you should not see a doctor please do yourself a favor go and see your doctor if you have or feel or see some kind of lump don`t wait like i did. I sure wish I had listened to everyone who had said something to me about the lump on my neck. Now it’s January 2016 .And here I am with a hole in my neck. Walking around with a Trech and so meny 911 calls do to so many blood clots making so hard to breath. And unable to talk and eat for nine months. I would not wish this on anyone. still in and out of the doctors. As far as I have been told it will be this way for awhile. But I have to Thank my GOD And My Surgeon Jason. Lieberwitz .And to All The Nurse`s at University of Miami Seven north. for a great Job Taking Care of Me. for the third time i was in room 726.724.722, I had surgery on June 23th 2016 to have my vocals Reconnected. It was not my last surgery as i wished. Now it`s Oct 1 2016 and Back to the Hospital at University of Miami. I started having some breathing problems so i went to the er as i was look at by the ent department there was a growing cartilage in my air way that was blocking my breath making hard to walk around. So again surgery Oct 6 2016. I was thinking it would be my last time and i ask my surgeon how long would i have if i don`t want a trech again. My doctor said maybe 30 days maybe a year. So now i had decided not to have a trech if it was going to take me back to my first surgery and a lot of 911 calls i would not do it again I had Already spoken to my two kids I had made up my mind. So on Oct 6 2016 I had surgery my surgeon Jason Lieberwitz. did the surgery removed the cartilage blocking my air way and put a trech said he did it cause it would be for two months only. not what i wanted but i am happy he did it. He saved my life now i can tell my story. I AM A CANCER SURVIVOR That’s it for now. One more Surgery still to come just to remove my trech. In about 2 months. So for Christmas being well is God gift.
