This week starts off a bit weird. With a guest who last-minute pulled out the boys are left to their own devices. Pedo doctors, car accidents, nasty facial growths, an escaped convict from a psychiatric hospital. Things borderline get out of hand. Thankfully we shift gears with a phone call from our homie Jamie Keeping! She just got a new set of Pipes and her lung function is on the up and up!
Adrian was on the podcast before. We spent most of the time talking about how we're all just flesh-covered, walking, talking donuts. Adrian had Chron's. Or Colitis? Or both? We aren't super sure. But he definitely had one... but was then told he had another... but none of that mattered because he now had to deal with his failing liver. Oh and not only him but his Twin brother, Devin, was going through the exact same thing. Might as well get him on the phone and see what's up in his world too!
Maggy was born with no esophagus. After undergoing 5 major surgeries she was able to finally live a somewhat normal life... except for the fact that, now, she pukes in her lungs if she eats too much! And if that didn't sound gnarly enough she also caught hepatitis c from a contaminated blood supply, the hospital only contacted her family 13 years later to inform them of this fuck up.
So by now you're probably thinking this is some crazy shit, but believe us this is only the beginning. What do you do when one of your parents doesn't accept your illness? How do you afford your treatment, get access to the help you need, and make it on your own? Is looking for a caregiver on doyoulookgood.com really a practical solution? All of this and more on this week's episode of Sickboy.
Dylan is your typical punk band drum player. Covered in tattoos, drives a motorcycle, has a full set of false teeth... wait, what?! While rocking out as a teenager Dylan began feeling the gnarliest of pains in his jaw. After some tooth extraction and a quick biopsy, the docs find a hardcore tumour growing on the inside of Dylan's face. So what does one do? Radiate that f*cker out! Unfortunately, this rotted out every single tooth in his head.
