Et Tu Brute Delayed

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.  So I planned on running this league and had a nice window of time open to set it up.  It's a cool idea, but complicated to setup and required time.
Unfortunately, I ran out of time.  I tried to get help, but wasn't able to do so in order to get things set up.  Recently, Coach reached out to me offering to help, but I failed to clear any time to even call Coach over the phone and set things up with him.   He's since then started up his cool little Retro league, so I'm going to put this league on hold until I get my more free time for NHL94.

As it stands, I had a scare by a doctor got me all paranoid I might have cancer, and I ended up having to set up all these doctor visits, and get a colonoscopy done twice in one week (getting put under twice in one week).  Everything got taken care of and it turns out I'm in the clear, but that WHOLE situation just messed me up and took up a lot of my free time, which I often used for NHL94!  Not to mention losing just several days of prep for the procedures followed by being all foggy for a day after.  Anyhow, long story short, I've been playing catch up on EVERYTHING in my life right now, and being real, won't be setting this league up any time soon.

Sorry to stroke you strokes.  :) I feel most bad about not doing a draft video for a second time on Flatcrusher!

Once I get my routine back, and find a nice window to set things up properly, I'll re-post and start up a league.  I might work on the setup slowly in the background in the meantime.

 

Running a draft for a different type of league (Plablegs, GDL, anything like that, setting up one of Raph's pre-done google docs), that's easy for me.  You guys get together on Discord, or on the forum, figure out when/what you'd want to do, and I'd help out, no problem.

ALSO, as a fair warning to all my fellow buds out here, if you are over 40, approaching 40, get checked out.  They used to recommend 50, but now are moving it to 45.  You'd be STUNNED at the stories I heard after I told mine around work/friends/circles, etc.

And, my gastrologist specialist I went to said 100% I'd have developed cancer if I hadn't gone in when I did.  Like, I'm never sick, don't have grey hair, all my hair, decent shape, sitting with good genes, no allergies, no history of nothing, and I'd have been in a bad way fast if I hadn't been listening to the radio and Eddy O was crying, dealing with his battle with cancer and talked about getting yourself checked out.

Scary stuff, not knowing what you can't see.

Don't have anything without your health for real.

Good to hear you're in the clear. Too bad you had to go through all that, but good to have it uh behind you...

We're all getting older, we'll have to set up a subforum for all our health issues soon :)

Question if you don't mind... So it sounds like they did some sort of preventative procedure to take care of something or other that would have gone cancerous later on?

:big_smile:Glad you are good Brutus!

Colon Cancer is real, but also super easy to prevent.

Get a colonoscopy (not pleasant but far better than dying, which is what will happen if you don't get checked and you have cancer, you won't know it until it is to late without getting checked).

They go up your backside with a camera and a snipper. 
If they see pre-cancerous growths they get it right now.

Super-easy, I've had 3 (40, 45, and 50) lucky me, I get another one at 55.
I have always gotten a perfect report.

Funny part for me is it is one of my former players who does my colonoscopy and as he says I've seen you a whole new way Coach.:amazing:

Smoz,

yeah as coach says, if you just go in regularly, then it's like basic stuff, they snip s**t growing in your shitter!  Lol

I had one done last week on Tuesday & Doctor found a large one he made me reschedule to take it  out on Friday & I guess he wasn't setup to do it during initial one Tuesday.

basically, anything large growing in the lower region if left alone eventually turns cancerous, is what I come to understand.

since I'm never sick, my basic checkup with a doctor I barely know ended up with me freaked out thinking something was really bad with me for 2 weeks while I waited for the specialist.  

ive got an 8 yr old princess & most of my mental issues were self-induced thinking about dying on her while I waited for that appointment & then after that, one week of 2 procedures, even if minor, just destroyed a busy working/family man's video play time.

once I'd seen the specialist & had the operations setup, my mind wasn't worried anymore but the prep for colonoscopy is disgusting (drink nasty s**t that drains you) & getting put under gives me at least a foggy mind for a day.  Losing a basic week for me is hard to catch up on things.

 

appreciate the support.  I'm fine, never really was in the bad other than in my own mind & if I had not gone in to get checked up.  Oddly, my regular doctor when I asked him last year said I should just wait till I'm 50.

i think I need a new regular doctor.

Brutus, glad you are ok.  

I am going to google colonoscopies now. I am in my late 40s.  My dad is at this moment dying of prostate cancer, and I regularly get my PSA checked, knowing there is a family history. Guess I have another thing to add to my "worry list" now. :P  (As people say, getting stuff checked out is better than dying.)

Edit: Ok I googled it.  In Canada, no family history means they recommend you get a colonoscopy at 50 years.  Also, not all growths lead to cancer, according to what I saw.  I read about it here:  https://choosingwiselycanada.org/colonoscopy/

Make sure he's a doctor, and there should only be one camera in the room. :P

Also, good to hear you're doing better Brutus.
