    Nice username Paul. Where was the cancer, mate?;)

    First things first, good to hear you're on the mend and best of luck to you.

    Afraid I haven't got an answer for you but hopefully angrydoc or nemesis1066 may be in a position to give you a pointer. I wish you well.
  3. My best mate has 1 ball post cancer and stayed in.

    Wardroom jokes aside, I too know of individuals, negat a pair, but don't know the medical aspect other than there are clearly some individuals still serving.
  5. It didn't seem to hinder Herr Hitler's career!
  6. May not be the absence of said appendage that is the issue - more likely the availability of shore jobs for Chef branch.... thought they had all gone civvie now?
  7. If it's any consolation, there was a lad in another class when I was on mechs course who was single knacker for the same reason. He was originally taken off course because of it but after it was all done and dusted he finished the course and went back to sea.
  8. My mate is back at sea; I know a lt cdr who's had v bad cancer and is back at sea.
