‘I Had to Go to Death’s Door’
Having starred on A&E’s Paranormal State, Ryan Buell is no stranger to navigating talk about death. But in 2012, the paranormal investigator was forced to face his own mortality when, at age 29, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
In the first part of his exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Buell candidly revealed the shock of his diagnosis, as well as coming to terms with the looming possibility of his death.
Now, in his own words, Buell recalls the depths of his struggle as he underwent treatment, and looks back on the people who’ve bolstered him along the way as he treads a slow, steady path to recovery.
A Turn for the Worse
They wanted to do preventative treatment: build up my organs, especially my kidneys. My understanding is that most people die of other complications due to the cancer, like kidney failure.
At times, I was experiencing almost like a traffic jam in my body and my kidneys would shut down or I’d be in insane, intense abdominal pain, like I was being stabbed to death. I was throwing up constantly, suffering fever, changing of the skin. It took some time to get things under control. I was grateful for this preventative measure as opposed to breaking out the hacksaw and just going straight in.
I remember one time I was rushed to the hospital because they thought there may have been a spread into my kidneys. And there were all these looks, like, “Dead man walking.” They kind of gave me that look of, “Aw, so sad.” I had to go in for, like, my 12th CT scan. It was a bright, sunny day and I had to go back into the hospital after I had just gotten out. I remember being scared at that point.
Really my hope came when, I would say in March, when I had one of my main surgeries. It happened out of nowhere. We were doing preventative care and things started to get a little worse. It wasn’t life-threatening, but it was like, Okay, it’s time to go in. It wasn’t like the year before, where [the diagnosis] was a shock.
I had a year to process it, and I made my mistakes. I saw the surgeon, and it was like, “We’re going to do this tomorrow.” It just felt right. I just felt like, it’s time for this to be done with, it’s time for me to turn a chapter and have some happiness.
[Around that time], I had a friend who came. An older gentleman, Charles, who was in his early 60s – we met him through Paranormal State. He was a former priest, and he became like an uncle. He talked to me about how … having faith means accepting loss sometimes and just knowing it’s going to be okay.
Faith isn’t when you keep getting rewards over and over again. Having faith is making peace with the fact that you may die, but you know it’s gonna be okay. He ended up passing away two weeks before my surgery, so he wasn’t able to see it through.
So [my fight] was for him and for my family. And, in a way, for the underdogs, because people were saying they weren’t expecting me to live for three months. Here I was a year later. I had to go to death’s door, in a way, and I had to accept that. And suddenly I found that there was a beauty to it. Maybe faith is accepting loss and death.
Just yesterday, Ryn Buel’s own mother made a post to Buel’s fan page. Her pleas were to the PRS fan club members and any persons sending him money. To please stop doing so.
