Sad Hope for a successful treatment and a speedy recovery.

It is shocking that it took the crash to mean that it was found.

I think so too, very sad and I wish him well.
We know someone else that had a removal and survived rather well.
I think that his demeanour suggests the doctors are not too worried for him to return to Italy for treatment.

The point about the way they discovered the "C" reminds me of my dicovery.
For my spine :- In and out of MRI and several CT scans and one a Nuclear medicine scan then the op, then another.
A year later after antibiotic treatments from my doctor, I am finally referred to hospital and another CT scan to be told I have the "C".
I ask the surgeon if it had just started and am told it has been around for quite some time. Implying some years.
We now realise they didn't see it during the spine scans through the same part of the body.

Just goes to show how lucky Ivan is, after all. (they found it Luck)

Oh that Nuclear medicine scan machine (after an injection) is bigger than MRI or CT scanners as it creeps slowly along your body and then rolls right under you. I thought it was going to swallow me as I went inside and then the operator says we will have you out in a few minutes.

Be Lucky

A touch of class, that guy.

Indeed, he was speaking matter of fact, going through the steps how it was found etc... looked like he was still yet to come to terms with it himself even.

Wish him a speedy recovery.
Bartali

Mr S ... I hadn't realised.  I hope all that is behind you now!!
gerry12ie

Aye, hope you have seen off the worst of it Shifter.  I would imagine there is a bit of grit in you somehow... Wink
Mrs John Murphy

Hope you have recovered. It sounds lucky that they found it when they did.
HuwB

Finally caught up with this thread.
Likewise, Mr S.
Best wishes.

Mr S... it shows we never know, hope you're as well as you can be
Geraint

Cue tasteful forum jokes about him having more balls than tour de france titles
Mrs John Murphy

They didn't hang around, Basso had surgery today.
Fontfroide

We have been "knowing" each other for a long time now.  Maybe we should have a small thread about illness and so forth.  However, knowing the topic is a bit intimate and not really an upper, I won't start it.

Glad to hear one of us, Mr. S, had something serious and survived through good care (and always a bit of luck).  No doubt we have others.
mr shifter

Thanks for all your good wishes but I didn't mean that to be a "Bleeding Hearts" story.

The point of the post is that you can have all sorts of medical examinations as the Doctors concentrate on the known Ailment but miss another problem that is under their nose.

Please :- I am not complaining about doctors/surgeons here on the National Health Service who have done wonderous things with my body.(you know that lump of meat they keep putting on the slab)

I hope the Ivan Basso quick operation is successful and they checked the whole of his body.
He's a Lucky Man to have found it so early.

So..........Be Lucky, and don't let the bastards get you down.

You do know that I was a cyclist, that was hit by a car and scrapped off the Bloody road onto a helicopter and close to a cycling death statistic.
Part of that saga has been through the JC threads before, hence the "Slab" mention. Very Happy

Be Lucky.

all the best MR S
