La guadaña

By Ramón

Hola a todos.

En enero de 2012,empezé a notar molestias en un testiculo,despues de autoexploración pasé a urologo,me hicieron pruebas y analisis me diagnosticarón un tumor,la guadaña se poso sobre mi,seguí escalando a modo de desahogo sin grandes pretensiones,estuve esperando la operación 2 meses,por fin en julio me la hicierón y extirparón completamente el testiculo,ahora faltaba la biopsia,nuevamente la guadaña,por fin resultado, no es maligno,no podia tener mas que alegria,fueron muchos meses con la guadaña encima,posteriormente revisiones,no necesité quimio ni medicación,lo unico negativo con el tiempo ha sido que cuando corria o escalaba me cansaba antes,era normal,uno de los productores de testosterona habia desaparecido,con unos parches se han podido reestablecer los niveles.Mi vida ahora es normal y mi actividad fisica mas o menos acorde a mi edad,49.La guadaña se ha retirado momentaneamente de mi vida pero estas situaciones son las que te hacen abrir los ojos y te enseñan lo breve que es una vida,lo fragiles que somos aunque nos creamos muy poderosos fisicamente,te demustra realmente quienes son tus amigos,su ayuda es clave en todo el proceso,tu familia,hay que tener una mentalidad positiva todo lo posible,aun en los peores momentos,esto ayuda,dejarse caer, hundir no lleva a ninguna parte,desde aqui mi apoyo y positivismo a todos los escaladores y personas que estan pasando este trance les deseo lo mejor.

Hello everyone.

In January 2012, I began to notice discomfort in a testicle, after self-exploration I went to urology, they did tests and analysis diagnosed me with a tumour, the scythe settled on me. I continued climbing in a way of relief without great pretensions, I was waiting for the Operation for 2 months, finally in July I had it and they completely removed the testicle. Then I had to wait for the biopsy, again the scythe, finally a result, it is not malignant, could not have felt anymore joy. Where before many months with the scythe hovering above, I now find out I did not need chemo or medication, the only continued negative was that now when I ran or climbed I was tired. It was normal, one of my testosterone producers had disappeared, but with some patches I have been able to reestablish normal levels. My physical activity is now normal more or less, according to my age, 49. The scythe has momentarily withdrawn from my life but these situations are what make you open your eyes and teach you just how short is a life, how fragile we are but if we believe we are also very powerful physically. These times really prove who your friends are, their help is key in the whole process, and your family, you have to have a positive mentality as much as possible, even in the worst moments, this helps, dropping, sinking leads nowhere. I wish my support and positivism to all climbers and people who are passing this trance, I wish them the best.
