SO how many markers did they plant in you? Hope you feel better quickly from that procedure, and get well rested before you start your radiation. Be thinking of you.

With gold trading above $1,200 per ounce, perhaps your back side is worth some big bucks, and you can go mining for gold if you get hard up, lol. Hope you feel better soon from that experience.
