Apparently the Endoscopy showed a cancerous ulcer in the stomach and preparations since then, including a Pet Scan at the Germaniko Ongologist hospital.I have had every test possible and very extensive consultations with the hospital Ongologist and the Surgeons. This Friday I shall be admitted and on Monday I shall have the operation which will apparently remove the ulcer and a part of the stomach. Needless to say I have tremendous confidence in the doctors and surgeons, I did ofcourse inform them of the existence of a personal IRREVOCABLE CONTRACT which expires on May 30th 2043, age 97 :lol: I have though been told that aftet the operation the ...wine will have to wait at leadt 6 weeks before my ...reunion with a glass. Guys, let me tell you,.I have had a lot of experience of UK hospitals, what with my late wife and daughter in law and I state here that the medical treatment here in Cyprus is much much better.

Good luck to you, Milti. We all face some difficult health issues as we age.

I am impressed to know that PET Scan is available in Cyprus.

Thanks K8kapu. It was my first visit at the Germaniko cancer hospital and I was indeed taken aback by how modern and well run hospital it is. The Per Scan was needed in order to ascertain if the cancer had spread elsewhere.The results showed no metastasis , I was told that this scan can identify any sign of cancer spread as low as 1mm. Tomorrow i shall have the final pre admission test , PNEUMOLOGY, at the Meditteranean hospital.Earlier today I received a call from the Surgeon advising me that the Cardio test I had yesterday is positive, a good sign, and also reminding me of my test tomorrow. I'm very impressed with the overall care and have absolute confidence in the doctors . My attitude is that , having my personal IRREVOCABLE CONTRACT, will see me through just fine, also encouraging that I have been told that Im lucky that it was discovered in the earliest time. I must also say that I have not had any symptoms what so ever and had it not been for a blood test showing my Haemoglobin at just 7, and my personal doctor calling me and insisting I attend hospital immediately for blood transfusion which also included an Endoscopy and Colonoscopy, this issue would not have been identified.

Have they told you to stop drinkig?

Alcohol in large quantities irritates the stomach lining, causing a condition called gastritis. Gastritis, which is inflammation of the stomach lining, is also caused by H. pylori. This leads some experts to believe that alcohol consumption increases the risk of developing an ulcer.

Get well soon old man otherwise who is going to buy my kosher pork keybabs

Yes, I have been told that following the operation I must not consume alcohol for at least 6 weeks and there after just a glass!! Part of the stomach I have been told will be removed so I will be given a list of foods to eat. I'm not the least concerned since I shall be in good hands. Besides I have my Personal IRREVOCABLE CONTRACT. :lol: :lol:
I must also reiterate that life here on Paradise Island is so so good. I'm enjoying my .....vacation, so far 4 years, 4 months, 15 days and .....6.5 hours :lol: A little different from the times I used to come on a Friday and back on the Monday !!
Lordo, is that bloody Halal Pork Kebab ready yet ?? :lol: :lol:

As your stomach is going to be smaller I am halving your portions and for the extra work required to do that I am doubling the price. But I tell you drinking will give you another ulcer. I am ammazed the quack has allowed you to drink even only one glass after 6 weeks, unless he meant just one glass and no more.

Yes, I am very familiar with what PET Scans can do and the information you were given are correct.

I had my last pre operation tests today lasting for almost 4 hours at the Meditteranean Hospital. A fine hospital, well organised and efficient. Had the Pneumologist who checked me thouroughly and again I saw a Cardiologist due to the fact that my heart beats were somewhat high. I was pretty much stressed but not of my health issues but those of my older brother in the UK who at almost 82 and cancer of the bones hasn't been given much hope. I can not travel right now but my 73 year old brother is flying out on Tuesday 7th.
Eric and I have been not just brothers but best of mates, always enjoying each other's company. This is life and none can escape the ultimate. .....

You should be able to see and speak to him on Zoom. Beter than to not see him at all.
