I have over a thousand of them. I've had multiple surgeries and they are done because I grow excessive scar tissue and they grow back bigger most times. I've got them up and down my arms and legs, around my organs, especially around my kidneys and bowels and new ones in my scrotum Grr. My chest is covered in them. My arms and hands go numb because the tumors have grown from my fingertips to my neck and up in my skull.
I had 39 of the worst ones removed in my last surgery and within a year they all had grown back and a lot more have grown. I had an argument with one of my old doctors because he was hell bent on saying they couldn't cause pain. Well I know he's wrong because I'm in massive pain and my whole body cramps up bad.
Cold weather or exerting myself, even if I get excited or mad, causes my muscles to cramp up because the tumors pull and put pressure on the muscles. They're growing so fast and everywhere. My doctors have decided there will be no more surgeries at all unless one totally stops one of my organs working.
So I deal with bowel issues and kidney pain all day. I spend multiple hours a day in the restroom trying to pee. After I eat I can tell you where the food is, because of them pushing on my bowels so bad. I hope something I've said will help you understand what you might be going through. It’s time to enjoy life day by day and work through each new problem as it comes. I am very excited to find this page today and see I'm not all alone.
