Ready for Surgery... Again

Today's episode is an update on my personal cancer journey.

I'm getting ready for major abdominal surgery #4 in the past 3 and a half years. I'll be going to Massachusetts General Hospital. A surgeon there will open me up and take out several small tumors from my abdomen. I may also lose a section of my stomach, because the tumors have been hanging out for quite some time right up against it.

I talk about my emotions around the surgery, and give thanks to many of the people who have played such important roles in getting me to this point.

After my update, I'm adding in the pilot episode of the podcast. We've had a lot of new people join the Man Up to Cancer community recently, and I hope they get a chance to check out this pilot.

About the Podcast

Man Up to Cancer
The show built for men facing cancer, and the people who love us!
I'm your host, Trevor Maxwell. I'm a stage IV colon cancer survivor, and I've got a message for other men: You don't have to go through cancer alone.

Every week on the Man Up to Cancer podcast, you can expect raw, unfiltered conversations about men, cancer, and our experiences. My guests will be other patients, survivors, advocates, and friends from #cancerland.

We'll tackle the topics of grief, pain, and the physical suck-fest of cancer. But .. PLOT TWIST.. we're also going to joke, laugh, and have fun.
