Comment from: Wynbar, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: January 06

I had testicular cancer in 1993 and 1999. First time there were no tumors in either testicle. I was told cancer cell had formed in testicle and travelled to abdomen forming tumor. The only symptom was severe stomach pain occasionally. Chemotherapy was successful but I developed tumor in testicle in 1999. Testicle was removed and I had more chemotherapy.

I got my flu shot at the end of November, and roughly two weeks later, an interpreter showed up with a very bad cold. That happened right around finals, and I became very sick a couple of days later. I think I got the flu, because it felt like a severe cold. I was sick off and on since then, and I woke up Wednesday morning feeling like everything I breathed was cold, dry air, and I was hugging the walls. I also had a fever off and on, and I had chest pain. I went to the emergency room that evening, and I got admitted to the hospital to rule out heart problems. Due to my age (60), the doctors wanted to make sure I did not have heart problems. My primary care doctor suspected I had pleurisy because my heart tests had been normal. While she was visiting me, I coughed up blood. I was in the hospital for two days. I did not get antibiotics, because she thinks it is a viral infection.
