  • "I'd give my left nut..."

    i know what you must be thinking... [but we gotta lighten up the mood somewhere on these boards!!! and considering i started Radiation yesterday and feel pretty dumpy... why not now???]

    but now that i think about how many times i said that...

    "IGMLN... for the Knicks to win !!"
    "IGMLN... for that girl in High School to like me!!"
    "IGMLN... to pass this class!!!"
    "IGMLN... to for 1 night with Gisele / Heidi / Claudia etc etc etc etc etc etc etc"

    and so on and on and on and on and on

    so aren't i owed one of those wishes at this point???
    i mean gisele lives like 12 blocks away from me!! does she ever read this board??

    anyone care to mention what they traded theirs for?

    I'm hoping to keep my left nut, having given up my right one.
    right inguinal orchiectomy 6/5/2003 > nonseminoma, stage I > surveillance > L-RPLND 6/24/2005 for recurrence, suspected teratoma but found seminoma, stage II > chylous ascites until 9/2005 > surveillance and "all clear" since

      I gave my left nut to the REDSOX WS, they just collected it a little late. They took it after the 2nd WS. I am a little worried now, I may have offered the right one for the Celtics championship one night. I know better than offer any body parts to the PATS. good luck man.

        I lost the right one too.

        And I'd glady give the left one to:

        1) Know it's the last cancer I'll ever have to kill
        2) Have Danny Aurit here with us
        3) Never worry about my Boy fighting this monster

        But I think I traded out the right one already to:

        1) Learn that I can endure a tremendous amount of pain
        2) Know that my wife is made of gold
        3) Meet this extraordinary group of people.

        Sorry to kill the humor in this thread.....I'm almost always up for some naughy fun....but just not tonight.

        I will say though... a round of golf at Augusta would be worth SOME body part.....
        Stage III Non-Seminoma- 7/11/06
        Right I/O 7/12/06
        Completed 4x BEP 11/06
        Bi-Lateral RPLND (Dr. Shenifeld)- 11/27/06
        Surveillance since then

        When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell.

          Anyone seen the movie cars? I'm sure most you have especially if you have children. Mater says "I'd give my left two lugnuts for somethin' like that!". Make me laugh every time. That is what I thought of when I saw this thread.

          Seeing as how I only have one left I won't be so willing to offer up a nut but I have an extra kidney if anyone has something good to trade.
