Malt lymphoma :o please don't tell me it's from drinking too many malted milks.

Only vanilla ones, the chocolate and strawberry ones are safe.   ;)

My surgery is on Monday (12-14).  Anxious to find out what it is, but not looking forward to surgery.  I also am going to probably have radiation.  What in the world is that going to do to the SJS?  I can only imagine the mouth horrors, has anyone gone through head/neck radiotherapy and had SJS?

I am glad you have a date and you don't have to to long to anticipate.

I hope some one comes around with a reply, that can share their similar story and give you comfort and encouragements.

prayers of healing and family support for you, my sister sjoggie,

A big Hug   :)    kimbo
