Bobby Shaves For Surgery

Bobby Shaves For Surgery“I just shaved my beard, the first time in 30 years. This picture is for anyone who has kids, grandkids that think smokeless tobacco is cool to do. I want to share so others don’t make the same mistake I did. I had to shave the beard for a twelve hour surgery, Tuesday morning September 8th. A team of doctors are going to remove my jaw bone, and give me a titanium chin. Then after living with a feeding tube and trachea tube for 6 to 8 weeks, I may have to have radiation and chemotherapy. Maybe 3 months down the road, I will return to work with God’s help. My recovery could include speech therapy and plastic surgery. Please let everyone that you know, don’t put that stuff in your lip.”

Sorry, I couldn’t help myself but I believe in posting things in a spiritually positive form so yes, I have rephrased his words just a bit. There are also tumors inside his mouth, not just the chin. The pain I have watched him endure with this rapidly growing tumor, daily splitting not only the skin, but effecting his eating and speech, has been humbling. Seeing the spiritual change in his life has been an honor to be part of.
Thank you all for your prayers and understanding if we’re unable to respond to your msgs immediately. God is good and lives are changing. And yes, God will get him back to work ASAP!

Post Surgery Update:

“Bobby has been in recovery now for the last hour. I have not been able to see him yet. Surgery did go according to plan. Part of the bottom lip was removed. He should regain full use of the lip after recovery. All bottom teeth were taken out except 1. Skin was taken off his arm and leg for the inside of the mouth and chin. Bone was taken from his leg for a new jaw. He has a feeding tube and trachea. Communication will have to be by writing for four to six weeks. There is some good news, possibly no chemo. There will still be radiation. Please continue your prayers for us. Thank you again everyone.”

  3. My sister Teresa stopped smoking when she was 52. Less than two weeks before her 55th birthday she was diagnosed with lung cancer, passed away three weeks after her diagnosis…I miss her dearly and pray that people realize how fragile life can be.

  4. For anyone who doubts a kid starts chewing young doesn’t know rural kentucky especially 30 or more years ago. Everyone knew someone who cut tobacco or grew it. Plug tobacco was sweet to the taste. My dad used to let me have some when I was younger than 10 and I chewed pouches when I was that young. Information about the dangers wasn’t widely known. I’m a girl and I chewed because my dad did. I moved on to cigarette s when I was older and smoked until about 10 years ago. The culture in rural areas is much different. Most people who grew up chewing were addicted and becoming aware of the dangers doesn’t mean a person can just quit so easy. It takes time and willpower or a serious motivation like this one. We all have our addictions so don’t judge. And unless you’ve grown up in a certain culture you can’t understand. I hope this man gets better. And I truly hope some younger generations benefit from the lesson.

  5. Becareful with vaping…it causes popcorn lung…look it up

    • Stop. Really. Just stop with the popcorn lung. It’s no more of a risk than smoking and yes, smokers DO have a greater chance of popcorn lung than those of us who vape.

  8. I thank you for sharing your story… I shared it with my 17 yr old son in hopes he chooses to stay away from it before it becomes an addiction. He has been caught on several occasions , I made him write me a research paper on it and he still did it again. Next time I chose the amount he had to fit in his lip, then he had to sit with it in his mouth and watch a movie with me( no spitting) he then turned a different shade and sped off to the bathroom. I felt terrible for putting him through that. But hoped it would steer him away from the nasty habit. Again, he says he doesn’t do it..but I found out yet again!!! But this time says he’s done…( yeah right!!!) .. He just lies to me about it like I’m stupid.

  11. I dipped a can a day for about 20 years. I tried to quit several times by reducing how many dips I had and even replacing it with smoking. I finally just went cold turkey and had some smokey mountain snuff as a back up if I got to crazy. It was really tough for about a week but I got through it. I have not taken a dip for almost 2 years now. I’ll still dip smokey mountain in the deer stand though. I know the nicotine created the addiction but I really just enjoyed doing it. I’m proof that anyone can quit if they set their mind to it because I never thought I could really do it!

    • Today is my 4th day of being completely dip free, it feels amazing to not be tied down by tobacco. Even though its not so much the nicotene as it is the entire habit I created. Whenever I would roll up my sleeves get to work on, dinner, cleaning, homework, stuff around the house or work at work, I would throw a dip in. That’s where smokey mountain comes in handy. The first day was tough, but after that it’s easy. I went through so many jolly ranchers haha but it was well worth it. I promised my wife right after xmas, after this can or the first of the year I would be done. Well, I ran out, kept my word and not seeing the dissappointment in her face when she asks me if I dipped today is such an amazing feeling. Good luck to everyone who tries to quit. It’s hard. I tried to quit before my daughter was born, shes 2 now. I said I would quit before my son was born. He’s due on April 13. Pretty excited to not let my kids see one of my flaws that I can correct!!

  12. Medpage.gov says the use of spit tobacco (dip,chew,snuff,snus) does not increase your chance of mouth cancer. Some dentists even admit that nicotine kills germs and bacteria in your mouth preventing gingivitis. I’ve both dipped and chewed for 11 years and yes it’s highly addictive but has not harmed my mouth science has shown that there are direct links to far more aggressive cancers in a warm bottle of water, processed food along with fast food and even talking on a cell phone. If you pay attention in to the websites, doctors, dentists, and your chem and bio science classes the genetic structure of the individual decides how susceptible they are to forms of cancer that is why not everyone that smokes chews dips or inhales gets cancer. For example me and also my fiancé’s father he has dipped and chewed since he was 6 and is now entering his 40’s and has not yet had any for of cancer and no a canker sore is not a form of cancer. I hope that the man has a smooth and speedy recovery even though the facts I have stated are true nicotine also reduces the speed of the healing process

  14. Bobby and family-
    I have never had a dip in my life, but I did socially smoke for around 7 years off and on. At 29 I was diagnosed with tongue cancer. Surgery removing almost half of my tongue, chemo, and radiation. More people need to tell their stories like this. There needs to be more awareness. These things DO happen. It isn’t always a “that won’t happen to me” story. I was the me. And it happened. And my family and I dealt with it. I was 7 weeks postpartum with my first daughter when I was diagnosed. I’m going to give you some encouragement though, it gets better. I pray you don’t need chemotherapy and it hasn’t spread regionally. The radiation is brutal enough. I had adjuvant chemo and radiation and it was rough. I don’t remember about 4 months of my daughters first year. But today, I am 35. I have 2 more daughters that they didn’t know I’d ever have after chemo. I have no lasting side effects that aren’t live able. One tip for you though, make sure they check your thyroid after radiation. Mine was burned up from it. I pray for you and your family. It’s rough, but you can do it!! People beat cancer everyday! Stay positive! Turn to God. He got me through a lot!

  25. Just want to say if you can quit, do so. Not to preach but I just lost my step father to this type of cancer, he had quit dipping and smoking 20 years ago. This is what took his life. I’m a past smoker I know it’s not easy. I will have 2 years under my belt in January, it has been a struggle the whole way, but I’m more determined now then ever. It was very hard to see such a strong person go down this way, js

  33. I too was a dipper for 23 years, almost 2 cans a day, this past June, I put it down forever, it took me three total days to quite, gained 23 pounds and took on Mountain Dew like it was water, but I did it, I have only had a few cravings and let me tell you, it was not hard to refuse, look at the money you will save, you may not be religious but I asked God to deliver me from that stuff and by his almighty grace he did, you can do it buddy

  34. First of all, I am praying for Bobby’s complete recovery and am so proud of him for allowing this story to be posted, so that others may be enlightened and lead away from using tobacco, in this case, the smokeless kind. Secondly, I want to commend Freddy for pouring out his heart in his reply on here and for deciding to quit this “filthy habit” once & for all. I pray for your success and good health and the same for anyone else that is moved to love themselves enough and save their own lives, too. God bless each & every one of you. Look to Him and draw your strength from Almighty God.

  40. Bobby, I just showed and read this to my husband, Wendell, He has chewed Mammoth Cave for years and years. We lost our son, Marcus, eight months ago and he is chewing even more now. I have asked him to quit so many times in the past and, maybe, your story will help him to quit. I know that this is such a bad habit to break. Thank you for posting…God Bless You…But, I hate that you did not quit before this happened to you…

  42. Wishing you the best and a speedy and efficient recovery, unfortunately I am reading this with a dip in… A little backround on myself; Currently I am 21, have been dipping since I was 15 and I have always used dip as a stress reliever which I understand is a false cliché about the nasty stuff since studies have proven chewing tobacco to raise blood pressure, increase heart rate, and adrenelin levels. But nevertheless I continue dipping under the false pretense that it will actually help me through stressful situations(which as an enlisted military person we deal with these situations a lot.) I have thought about quiting for years now, but every time I try I may only last a couple days at best due to the fact that I just like it, and never really wanted, or had the motivation to quit. “Oh, that will never be me..” A doubtful and hopeful phrase of which everyone who continues dipping has said if even just in their minds at least once. But the truth is that it can happen to anyone. This article proves that as well, and so many people have gone through this devastating experience only to wish that they have never started in the first place, and want to spread the word to others in hopes that maybe it will make a difference in even just one persons life so they won’t have to go through the hardship of all the endlessly possible complications dipping can generate from tooth loss all the way up the the most extreme complication which could result in a very painful death… I don’t know why this article hit me this hard, I have read articles before and although it made me contemplate whether or not i should continue the filthy habbit, i have always chosen the latter. maybe it made me think about my life, my girlfriend, or just my lifestyle and well being in general. Whatever the case may be, I have just removed the filth from my mouth, and have decided to commit myself 100% to quitting. All because I have stumbled upon this article tonight, so not only do I really wish you the best in all of your future endeavors, and hope you come out of this stronger than ever. I also want to take a second to thank you, from the bottom of my heart for really opening my eyes by posting this, and I hope others will make the same realizations I have made today. It is a filthy habbit that will only take you down with it, it doesn’t matter who you are, Noone is invincible, nor should they engage in a dangerous habbit that could inevitably kill you.. Life throws enough curveballs at you as it is, there is no need to increase the risk of complications in life with something you could knowingly avoid, especially with something that has absolutely no benefit to your life, and you can control. So thank you again, I really admire your courage in posting this, and I admire you for being so stong in a situation most people would let drag them down. I wish you the absolute best.

Thank you for sharing this, hopefully as I dwell on it my eyes will open up and maybe in will have more strength and courage to battle this addiction.

  50. Dear Mr.Bobby,
    I see it has been awhile since your surgery. I pray that things are going well in your recovery. I don’t personally use smokeless tobacco but I do smoke cigarettes. I’m losing a lot of my teeth because of this. I’m only 39 years old. I pray that one day GOD takes the taste away from me and gives me the strength to quit. To me whenever someone like you has the strength to go public with a medical condition as severe a your it give me hope. That one day I’m going to be that strong to do the right thing. Cigarettes are just as bad! My kids are on me all the time to quit. And I tell them I can’t do it for them. I have to want to do it for myself. So God Bless you for giving me hope and I pray your recovery is coming along extremely well! Sincerely Tomera Kelly

  51. BazookaJoe here, I quit dipping 514 days ago and am still an active member of November 2014 Stone Cold Quitters. This site and others like it don’t guarantee that you will be successful either in your initial quit or staying quit down the road. That task belongs to YOU since you have to make a conscious decision to pack your lip with that shredded cancer or to log on every day and make a promise not to use nicotine in any form. These sites provide the brotherhood and accountability so all you have to do is provide the commitment.

  54. Just don’t seem right saying you had back surgery as comparison to his surgery and pain..sorry but I had 4 total hip replacements, knee surgery, spleen removed due to Harley wreck, total thyroid removed, and as arthritis swarms my body, next month I will have a ruptured disc removed from my back..But I would never compare this to the pain of him with cancer, wondering if he will live, also suffer deformity… I’m sorry i just don’t think yourI back pain/surgery can even begin to someone’s pain that is Life threatening…

  68. I would love an update on this story.
    I’m a former dipper. Been off the spit bottle for 18 months. Started dipping at 15 and quit after 30 years. To be honest quit cold turkey. No withdrawals or any such issues as that. I know the only I had no withdrawals was because I put it all on God’s shoulders. I’m a student ministry leader at my church and I took my last dip the night before we left for student camp July 17, 2014. And I’ve not picked up a can since!




    0
  69. I wish someone I loved would stop. He has been dipping since he was a teenager, he’s now forty-five. I don’t push him on it, but it scares me to death. I lost my father to cancer when I was eighteen, he was only forty-two. You would think he would understand my fear.

  70. My husband died after having half of his jaw taken and his teeth removed going thru radiation and chemo. Thought he beat it and he started having headaches and his eye started drooping. It was fast growing and right into his brain. He died 2 months after losing his ability to walk or talk. Sadess time in my life and my children. We had been married for 47 years.

You will be in my prayers daily 🙏🙏 I sure hope we get an update when you’re all healed up! All things are possible through our Father!! Maybe his plan for you is to spread the word of this unfortunate event. It could scare people into never chewing tobacco?? I’m a woman so I don’t do dip, but I do smoke and you have me scared to death!! Praying for a speedy recovery and being comfortable during your recovery!! Watch those pain meds, they are highly addictive!!!

  75. Thoughts and prayers to Bobby and his family and a speedy cancer free recovery…

    I myself turn 29 in a few days and have been a user since 10 if not younger. . .I have two kids 7 and 4. . .I quit chewing carrying the two of them of course, but other than that was new relationships…then I would pick it up again 🙁

    But after seeing this I am hoping to be able to put the stuff down and never pick it up again…I’ve recently been going through some stomach problems, done a bunch of tests that came back clear thank goodness…so far docs are putting my stomach problems to stress.

    Anyway once again thank you for sharing and I look forward to putting the stuff down again and for good this time.

    Thoughts and prayers out to Bobby and family and friends and any in need.

I am scared to death that one day he will have to face this terrible life changing thing we call cancer. I pray everyday that he can be strong enough to quit. Thank you for sharing your story. Praying you have a speedy and full recovery. God bless you!!

  83. Prayers for you and your Bobby, my father had almost the same type of surgery from smoking and Agent Orange. Took a toll on him for sure, he passed at the age of 59.
    So glad I quit smoking 20 years ago.

  84. I cannot imagine your pain. I had a very successful spinal surgery…all I had to do was be in the hospital for six days …and recovery was about six months….of not lifting anything over ten pounds…including mu daughter…not sweeping…being just very careful. This was the most horrendous pain I have ever imagined.

    What you are going through….i can barely stand yo think of it. The very strong pain meds they gave me after surgery….did little to even dull the pain. I hope you will be sedated to some point.

    So hard. I’m sorry you have to do this. Remember its a healing pain. It wont hurt any less…but I hope it makes you stronger.

    Prayers to you and your family.

  93. I went through this same exact surgery a little over 11 years ago at UCLA Medical Center. The doctors that performed the surgery were the inventors of the procedure. At the time, I was given 3 – 5 years to live. I have no teeth. Because of all the radiation therapy (that saved my life), my larynx was burnt, so I talk like Cookie Monster. I lost about half of my tongue. I was told I would never eat solid foods again. It was from prognosis, but I refused to let this get to me. I still have no teeth, but eat most anything, including steak, etc., but have to cut everything into very small pieces and use sour cream as a food lube oil to aid in swallowing. I am happy, healthy and extremely grateful for my life today. Keep a positive attitude, and get well. It is a hard road, but you can get through this ordeal. If you ever want to talk, please give me a text or a call. I have a lot of tips to help you along the path to recovery. Godspeed, my friend.
