    I don't normally ask for things like this but I figured it could only help.

    I am undergoing spinal surgery on Wednesday for an intra-spinal cord tumor so they can biopsy it and move forward with a treatment plan. I'm 29, otherwise healthy and strong, and will kick this tumor's butt with the help of my doctors, I believe there is no other outcome.

    I'm asking for my brothers and sisters of GT to say prayers, positive thoughts, and anything else benifitial for my health and recovery. I thank you all in advance.

    -Adam

    Not to worry,It will be ok, I had my whole Cervical spine rebuilt.
    Yes,the whole damb thing.It consists of 7 vertabra from the base of the skull to about the shoulder blades.
    They said it was serious and high risk,a-quad or death.

    I have 12 new titainium scews,seven plates to replace the missing bone and I am sitting here typing to you.Hmmm?

    I will however pray for you but I think you are in good hands
    plus you are young and strong.Go with the flow and relax with a good atitude and I'm sure you will be ok.

    PS: I do have funny side effects though,when ever it thunder-storms,I get an errection and point north,Hmmm?

    Good luck and stay positive friend and I shall pray !

    good wishes sent your way, how did you find out you had this tumor??? If you don't mind my asking, I'm sure youll come out fine. A guy I work with had a tumor removed from his spine a few years ago, he acts no different now than he did before the surgery.:cool:

    I had numbness in my butt and legs, thought it was a pinched si nerve, got an MRI and the noticed a mass in my T1 / L5 went and spoke to a neurosurgeon, and then got a 2nd opinion from my current neurosurgeon who is the head of neurosurgery at university of Miami medical center.
