  • hey guys welcome back to my channel apologies  for the very long space between videos it uh was  

  • not planned and as you can see i'm not in japan  i'm in a very canadian looking house is because  

  • i'm in canada at the moment i'm  gonna be here for a little while  

  • um i thought about whether or not i wanted to make  this video i wasn't too sure because it's pretty  

  • personal and i thought maybe i could just pretend  like the last couple months didn't happen and  

  • get back into vlogging whenwas ready and not address it but  

  • the past three months have just been an absolute  [ __ ] show and the only things that helped me  

  • get through it mentally were watching vlogs  of people that went through the same thing  

  • or were going through the same thing and it really  helped me out like i cannot explain how much of  

  • a comfort it was to see somebody who was going  through the same thing um and handling it okay  

  • and just uh getting some idea of what it was gonna  be like for me but anyways let me explain what the  

  • heck i'm talking about so as you guys know i just  moved apartments in japan i moved to a new city  

  • i'm based in sendai now i just moved into  my new apartment in july and i was there for  

  • five days before all of this happened and that  was such a good five days i've got mauro back  

  • and i really like my new apartment and i was  just so thrilled to be there in a new city  

  • and really excited about making videos for you  guys and i talked a lot about wanting to make  

  • videos in sunday for you and i'm sure you're all  wondering why the heck i haven't uploaded anything  

  • well yeah five days after i moved in  i started having troubles speaking  

  • it i'm still having problems now you can  probably tell my voice is a little messed up  

  • but it's really hard to explain it kind  of just felt like i had to really put a  

  • lot of effort into speaking and i felt really  exhausted after trying to talk for more than  

  • a couple minutes at a time and i was also having  problems swallowing and breathing at times so i  

  • found a clinic nearby my new apartment and  i popped in there and i asked them to just  

  • take a look at my throat see if there's anything  weird going on there and they took some blood  

  • tests my blood tests were all normal so i wasn't  too worried and then i went in for an ultrasound  

  • which is just um it's not painful it's just to see  the inside of your throat and see what's going on  

  • and there's an ultrasound technician that looks  at a screen and will record that information and  

  • pass it on to the doctor the technician doesn't  normally tell you anything because it's not their  

  • place to do so as she was like scanning  my throat she was taking so many pictures  

  • of this one location and she said is this  the first time you're having this looked at  

  • and i was like yeah first time just started having  troubles with it um these past couple weeks and  

  • it just got so bad today that i thoughtreally should go in and get it checked out  

  • she was like okay well the doctor is going to  talk to you about this and that's just like ah  

  • that doesn't sound good i started to get a little  nervous i went back out to the waiting room and  

  • i sat there for about 20 minutes then the doctor  called me in and sat me down and right away he was  

  • like you have a giant tumor on your thyroid andwas like oh okay didn't see that coming i really  

  • i didn't know what to expect but i think i had  maybe expected something more along the lines  

  • of maybe your thyroid is swollen or irritated or  like enlarged i didn't expect to hear that i had  

  • a tumor and then he followed that up with  and there is a 95 chance that it's cancer  

  • and i was just like oh okay i was not prepared  to hear this today i had not mentally prepared  

  • to hear that i have a large cancerous tumor  in my neck today so i don't know i was just  

  • shocked it's hard to explain how i felt i was  terrified and the worst part is he didn't really  

  • tell me much else he said we'll have to do some  more follow-up tests on it to see what's going on  

  • but my clinic is very busy so i can't  get you in for another three months

  • i really can't sit on this information  for three months like that's probably the  

  • some of the worst news i could have heard  from you and now i'm supposed to just  

  • act like normal and go about my life for three  months wondering what the heck is going on  

  • and if i'm gonna be okay and that was just to do  some more follow-up testing so i just felt like  

  • this was gonna be such a long process and  i really wasn't comfortable with that so i  

  • left the clinic and i did some research on thyroid  specialists in japan and i phoned up a bunch of  

  • them before before i did this i had to quickly  teach myself all these japanese words to do  

  • with thyroid and thyroid conditions and  tumors and cancer all of this vocabulary was  

  • brand new to me because i had never had  to use these words in japanese before  

  • so i did that and i kind of prepared myself to  talk about it in japanese and then i called up all  

  • the hospitals that i could find and every single  one told me the same thing they're full and the  

  • soonest they can get me in is probably three or  four months down the line so i talked to my family  

  • and uh i asked them to do some research to see  what they could find in canada they didn't really  

  • have any luck finding anything in canada either  there wasn't really much information online and i  

  • didn't really feel comfortable making a trip all  the way to canada to see a doctor if i couldn't  

  • learn something about them online beforehand to  make sure it's a reputable place and you know  

  • it has good reviews so we kept looking  and i think about maybe a week later  

  • my dad found a place in florida of all places  that had amazing reviews online it was a center  

  • that specializes in thyroid disease and thyroid  cancer and surgery of the removal of tumors and  

  • thyroid glands so all they did was thyroid stuff  and the reviews on google were just stellar like  

  • everybody said that they just had the best care  when they went there there were even people that  

  • said other doctors had told them their cancer was  terminal and they went to this hospital in florida  

  • and they were able to cure it so everything  just sounded really great about this hospital  

  • and even though florida is probably you know  one of the last places that i want to travel  

  • right now with covid and everythingfigured it was worth it so i contacted  

  • the hospital and i put in like um patient  request form with all my information and  

  • i uploaded my ultrasound files and stuff  so that the surgeon could check them out  

  • excuse me and then i just waited to hear back from  them and this was like the most excruciating i  

  • want to say it was probably about 10 days of  my life just wondering if i would hear back  

  • from them if they would accept me as a patient  like i'm sure it's a pain in the ass for them to  

  • have to deal with somebody who's located on the  other side of the world it would be much easier  

  • if they could just take somebody in america i'm  sure but um then i got a call one day at 3am in  

  • japan time and the lady was like uh good evening  sharla and i say uh it's actually 3am here but hey  

  • thanks for calling and it was the surgeon  the surgeon herself called me up and  

  • she wanted to talk to me and ask me some questions  about how i was feeling and she would give me a  

  • recommendation as to whether or not she thinks  i should have surgery to remove the tumor or  

  • yeah just how i should go about it from looking at  my scans and from talking to me about my symptoms  

  • etc the surgeon told me there's about a 50 50  chance that is cancer and she won't know until  

  • she removes the tumor and they're able to send  it off to a lab and examine it thoroughly that  

  • was kind of a relief to me because the doctor  in japan told me 95 chance so hearing 50 50 from  

  • the american surgeon kind of put my nerves like  at rest a little bit i felt a little happier  

  • with those odds even though they still kind of  suck and in the end we decided together that  

  • it would be best to remove it and she said they  could get me in in two weeks to do the surgery  

  • and i told her i might need a little bit longer  than that because traveling overseas is a bit  

  • of a process right now as we learned with the  morrow situation so i booked my surgery for a  

  • little further in advance to give me enough time  to get all my vaccine documents translated and to  

  • book flights and hotels and there's lots involved  luckily all of that prep went smoothly and um i  

  • took a flight to canada and i thought i would  spend a week with my family before heading down  

  • to florida just so that i could enjoy some time  with them without having to recover from surgery  

  • and then i flew down to florida it took three  flights from my hometown i had to go victoria  

  • vancouver toronto florida so i think i tooktotal of eight planes last week eight different  

  • flights i'm so sick of planes so sick of flying  but made it to florida it was hot as [ __ ] there  

  • and really humid i didn't know what to expect you  hear so many bad things about florida online but  

  • every single person that i talked to there was  so nice uh i have nothing but good things to  

  • say about the people of florida so thank you for  your hospitality the taxi drivers were awesome  

  • and the hotel i stayed at yeah they're all  really cool i was there for two days before my  

  • appointment just to get settled in and uh the day  of my surgery i woke up at 5 00 am i decided to  

  • walk to the hospital because i didn't know if  i could trust the taxi to show up on time and  

  • i didn't want to be late it was only about  a 40 minute walk or so so it wasn't too bad  

  • and when i got to the hospital there was a really  pretty rainbow outside yeah it just felt like  

  • a good sign everything's gonna go fine today  i was nervous as hell i was so nervous so i  

  • got signed in at the hospital and they brought  me into um my little room i had a private room  

  • there they did a whole bunch of blood tests on me  to check my thyroid hormone levels and some more  

  • thorough ultrasounds apparently they have some  really high tech ultrasound machines there so  

  • they checked my thyroid and they also checked  all the lymph nodes in my neck and under my  

  • chin area to look for signs of abnormalities  in my lymph nodes because the first place  

  • that thyroid cancer will spread to is your lymph  nodes so they did a really thorough ultrasound of  

  • my whole neck and they told me they didn't see  anything abnormal there so that was really good if  

  • it was cancer it appears that it is all contained  to my thyroid and it hasn't spread anywhere yet  

  • from what they could see after my ultrasound  scans the nurse brought me back to my room  

  • and she told me to remove all my clothes and put  on these special socks that she gave me and just  

  • wait on the bed for the surgeon to come in and  do like one final examination before the surgery  

  • and i was like oh so just completely naked except  for the socks and she's like yep completely naked  

  • put the socks on and just wait for the surgeon  so i take off all my clothes i put on these  

  • ridiculous yellow socks and i'm just sitting on  the bed naked waiting for the surgeon to come in  

  • she comes in and she's like why are you naked  did they not give you a gown and i was like  

  • no she told me to take all my clothes  off and wait for you and she's like no  

  • that's no you put your gown on here have a gown  and she gave me a gown it was really embarrassing  

  • um but the surgeon is so cool really  really nice woman she's hilarious and

  • you

hey guys welcome back to my channel apologies  for the very long space between videos it uh was
