Officially stage 3 carcinoid cancer (in the small bowel). Luckily surgery alone took care of it. For that reason I really don't feel part of the cancer survivor fraternity because I didn't have to deal with chemo or radiation.
Diagnosis was dragging on until a doctor finally referred me to the James at Ohio State. Within 3 months of the first time I stepped into a doctor's office in Columbus without knowing what I had, I was cured. As much as we love their football team, Ohio State is truly kicking ass where it really matters.
