Early discovery may have saved my life (or orchiectomy with a twist!)

2021.09.28 05:29 heise_krysneyrobi Early discovery may have saved my life (or orchiectomy with a twist!)

I am writing this to simply share my experience- may it bring comfort to those feeling scared, nervous, or hesitant seek medical attention.
Since I was young, I have practiced testicular self examination regularly. Not on a strictly month-by-month basis, but rather at frequent unscheduled intervals. Probably every two weeks. Why not?
I have a family history of TC. My uncle waited perhaps a year before acting, despite he himself being a doctor. Wrote it off as a false alarm, aging, whatever. It spread and he had multiple major surgeries to mop everything up. He eventually was declared cured.
My timeline has been very rapid. One day, I felt that my right testicle was more firm than I remembered. No lumps or bumps. Just firmness that made me raise an eyebrow. I made an appointment ASAP. Got an appointment within the week. The urologist was concerned and ordered an ultrasound. Solid mass. Solid is not good.
I switched hospitals to the best in my city. Physical exam, CT scan, sperm bank cryopreservation all in one day.
I am VERY fortunate. Mass was discovered on a Monday, and the orchiectomy was performed on a Friday.
Thanking my lucky stars it happened so fast. Just in 4 days, I could feel the mass transforming in shape and increasing in hardness.
And now for the twist. I wake up in the recovery room and sip on sprite, excited to get home. A strong dizziness overtakes me. Blood pressure is dropping (87/46 - yikes). Doctors gather. More and more. Old doctors arrive. Their faces are concerned. The concern is internal bleeding.
I am wheeled away to get a CT scan. What’s that? The machine is in use? Clear it out, get them out of there! My surgeons bulldoze a path for me, bumping someone off the machine mid-scan.
I am mildly allergic to the iodinated contrast solution, so instead of a 5 hour steroid/Benadryl/whatever premedication regimen, I am anesthetized and intubated so it doesn’t matter if my throat tries to swell shut.
I am kept unconscious for 8 hours during the scans, emergency surgery, and recovery time in ICU in which I must remain completely still.
I had suffered internal bleeding from the artery cut during orchiectomy, losing roughly a third of my blood in the process.
4 days in the ICU. One day in a step down room before discharge. Extreme swelling of the scrotum- Well beyond even a large grapefruit. Swelling in the abdomen too, causing great pain. Good nurses got me through 4 days of anguished languishing in the ICU.
My mass was found to be seminoma with no evidence of spread. Treatment path is surgery followed by surveillance. This is a blessing and I do not take it for granted.
My gospel truth: Examine yourself often. Feel something unusual? Not really sure? DO NOT WAIT. GO SEE A DOCTOR
I wish you all peace and wellness.
TLDR: found cancer early due to routine self exam. Didn’t wait one minute to call a doc. Internal bleeding following the orchiectomy led to 4 days in the ICU. Caught it early and no chemo or radiation has yet been necessary (fingers crossed)

2021.09.28 05:29 rip-droptire Go ahead, hate on my two heroes (Junk and Doom)

I know these two heroes get a ton of hate all over this community. They're ridiculously fun to play IMO (I have combined around 600 hours on them vs. less than 100 on other heroes, bar Lucio), but a pain in the fat arse to play against.
So I'm putting this thread here so you can get your anger at these heroes out, without criticizing my pick in game (from either team).
And yes, I do hate hitscan supremacy, if anyone was wondering.

2021.09.28 05:29 OphioArachne I need some advice.

You see I am helping design this haunted house at my school. For my room my group decided to make it a mad scientist lab who experimenting on animals turning them into horrifying bloodthirsty mutants. We eventually decided I'm going to be the mad scientist and agreed I was going to dress in drag to play the part. You see it was one of those time when I really wanted to do it but never expected that I would get this far. I just need help with figuring out drag. So far all I know about drag is that it not the same as crossdressing which is a good thing because I'm nonbinary and I feel like it would be impossible to dress in cloths that don't fit my gender but drag is creating the you that you always wanted to be, it basically becoming the inner version of yourself. So basically can you give me advice and recourses on how to dress in drag for someone who amab because I don't know where to start.

2021.09.28 05:29 ColdWires Seeking career advice.

Apologies if this question is too general or isn’t quite right for this sub, also for the formatting I’m typing this on my phone.
I’m about halfway through college and in a ton of debt so I’ve been considering applying for WOFT as I’ve been flying recreationally since I was in high school.
My dilemma is that although flight is my passion, I think I could also make a good officer and with ROTC I’d be able to afford finishing my degree.
If anyone’s been in similar spot considering wether or not to pursue commissioning or has insight into how flying as a warrant is I’d really appreciate.

2021.09.28 05:29 findingajobaccount Why can you inline virtual functions?

struct Super { inline virtual void func() { cout << "In super" << endl; } }; struct Sub : Super { inline void func() override { cout << "In sub" << endl; } }; int main() { Super *spp = new Sub; spp->func(); } 
The appropriate virtual func is not known until runtime, yet you can mark virtual functions inline. I understand that modern usage of "inline" has more to do multiple-identical-definitions-across-different-translation-units but even so, this got me wondering whether it is even possible for the compiler to inline virtual functions? I think not right?

2021.09.28 05:29 AnonymousAlien96 So should i put in a geforce rtx or rtx A series card in my server/nas doubling as a powerful pc build? Im still confused with which cpu to choose, cascade lake X or cascade lake xeon. Which motherboard for either of the cpus will support 5 plus sata ssd bays?

geforce rtx is designed for gaming and nvidia rtx A series is designed for professionals but given the current gpu market hiatus, rtx geforce cards are overpriced and rtx A series is slightly available if you know where to look. So which card series should i go for? RTX 3080 or RTX A 5000? thank you everyone!

Hey everyone! I've been participating in low-budget indies and student films and they often ask me to email them a copy of my ID (e.g. driver's license) along with a signed performer release form before filming starts.
However, I've always been told that emailing sensitive info like this is not recommended for security reasons. Have any of you been asked to do this before?

2021.09.28 05:29 Gloomy_Fig_3696 Seeking Arrangements Ban after creation?

So, I've never looked into the Sugar lifestyle and I don't even think it's a great fit for me. But I am 29, often told I have model looks and I'm ready for something serious and mature. I assumed someone with their life, at least financially together, is more near the position of something serious than these Tinder girls I have been finding.
So out of curiosity more than anything, I created an a count that would be very similar to my Hinge profile. My photos were mostly of me on the lake or me with my dog, nobody else or nothing else (I guess, looking for answers, I had a picture in a swim suit holding my husky when he was a puppy).
I made the account and started messaging a few women before I noticed that my profile picture was still blank. I co tasted support and asked if it was some sort of glitch or if there was an approval period.
After about 30 minutes total, my account was gone and when I tried to log in it said it was deleted. I did nothing but try to look for a genuine relationship with an established person (and never even said that really).
What in the world happened for a rated g profile to be deleted in 30 minutes with no reasoning?
Here is what I posted, I had a copy in my notes.
"Well first off, hello, my name is Garrett. I'm a 29 year old man who is looking for a life-long partner. I have a degree in Film and Television and planned on doing production work but, Covid put a huge hitch in things and I ended up moving back near my home town (Fresno) and buying my first home.
Upon relocating, I decided to change career paths as... well have you ever heard of a studio in Fresno? My family owns a real estate company so I just got my license and am heading that direction.
I don't love the location that I live in, but family means the world to me and it's nice being around them after a decade in southern California. Long-term, the area isn't my ideal preference, though.
So, that's the cringe "where are you in life" description. If you want to hear me talk about my personality... I guess you can keep reading.
So, how would I describe myself?
First, I would probably say goofy. I have a child like wonder about a lot of things that, I think is important for everyone to have. While I consider myself a realist, if you lose your ability to have joy and wonder about the little things, life isn't very joyful.
I'd say I am pretty low-key and down to earth. Im not a "social butterfly", rather I am more of a person that values strong and emotional connections. My main concern isn't what strangers think of me, but the ones close to me are highly important.
Well, I don't want to keep rambling so, ask if you think we could have a good connection."

2021.09.28 05:29 BIG_NIG_NIG DAY 0

I cant stand it anymore, relapsing. I am gonna push myself not to relapse today and take day by day. I have realised the idea of keeping busy is so crucial in the early stages. It keeps ur mind off it but also so important to have things that can help u reduce the urges such as breathing exercises.
I will push n better myself, this is day 0 even if i have relapsed twice today, idc. I am pushing too keep strong for the rest of the day.
Wish me well for its gonna be a lil rough but every small sacrifice has a great outcome!
