Life can change that fast!
So in January of 2017 I had outpatient surgery to remove a testicle with what was then believed to be a trauma-based tumor from years ago. Pathology indicated cancer, specifically teratoma. CT and PET scans revealed a roughly 3 inch circular tumor in the retro peritoneum, and on April 4th I endured a second surgery to remove the tumor and adjacent lymph nodes.
I had NO IDEA how much time would be required to recover. I have a pinched nerve which unfortunately renders my third and fourth fingers on my left hand numb... so there's no guitar until this gets worked out. Grrrr!
More info to follow.
