Back in Dec I went to the Doc wasn't feeling good on Friday Doc gave me some meds. On saturday I went back something didn't feel right. Never looked in the mirror. They put me in the hospital for 10 days some clean air room.Nurse wore masks when they came to poak me. I cam down with shingles and they found out I have cancer thats attacks the immune system. So the hole left of my face is numb and if I touch it hurts like hell. Can't shave can't hear out of my left ear and the back side of the ear produces a oil and my brain has to tell my left eye to blink. When I lay down I get never pains Doc says the face is waking up. Only on the computer a hour or two a day my brain gets all disoriented. So cause of the cancer it might take two years for this to get out of my system.
If your over 60 go get a shingle shot the vaccine is hard to come by. Or wind up like me
Don't dare to ride car is ok

Dayummm, that sucks! My mom had shingles and I remember the pain she was in. Have been on the wait list for almost a year for the vaccine.

Saying a prayer for your recovery.

I am so sorry to hear this VJ. Damn! I hope you get better a lot sooner than 2 years from now.

I took the liberty of making a few corrections to make your post a bit more readable since you're having trouble concentrating right now.

Prayers and good thoughts headed your way brother!

Soooooo sorry to read your storry, so happy you are able to share it with us, i had to google shingles, ... did you get shingles because the cancer effected your immune system ?

May we know what stage cancer you are in ?

Lots of love from a cancer survivor, you can do the @visionjohnny

Holy GAD, now I see why you're in such a bad mood most of the time - what a puss on you. HAHaHaHa. I'm sorry I couldn't resist. Dude, it's really horrible what you're going through and I've got a ton of empathy and sympathy. I was shocked to see the picture and felt physical pain - that's right, my butthole puckered so hard it lifted me off the chair a good two inches. O U C H! Alright, let's get serious - the shingles is definitely messing up your appearance but we can hope that will clear eventually - but what's up with this cancer that attacks your immune system, lymphoma? Tell us more about that please when you're feeling up to it. And again, sorry for poking a little fun at you in the beginning of this message...you gotta admit that's one badass pic! Prayers and MOJO sent for healing.

Thanks for the well wishes.
The other day I was taking a break from raking leaves. I try to stay active and was sitting on the front steps when a gust of wind hit the side of my face. I could not hear it but could feel it. Very weird. I never could scratch my scalp cause it felt nike my finger nails were cat clas. As long as the cancer is attacking my immune system I have found vitamins. So now I take E B6 C and I found Gold Leaf extract to counteract it. I think it is helping. My face is about 85% back to normal but I still get sores acting up. Last night just below the chin line it started itching. It will drive you crazy and if you itch it you could spread the soars. My left eye still will not blink by itself I have to make it.
Guys when you see a doctor ask all kinds of questions cause they don't tell you everything. One time my doctor was in for 10 min and was ready to leave and hadn't told me ****. I ask him to sit down and tell me what was really going on. I did find out more but not enough. So ask even write down questions. I have 3 doctors and there all the same way.
I have found out guys 50 and older can get the shots too.
The vaccine is hard for doctors to get so get on a list NOW.

Glad to hear things are improving. And that is good advice about asking questions - guys tend not to do that.
