These tumors of yours, benign I trust?
I notice a lot of lookers at your post but nobody has chosen to reply. It always hurts my heart when that happens. But, shamans are a strange lot, (including me) and you may well be receiving healing energies without anyone saying "hey look at me, I'm helping".
Questions: Are you and your wife shamans? What drew you to this shaman forum?
If neither of you study or practise shamanism, I encourage you to visit youtube and watch the vids by Serge Kahili King. He practises what is called Huna shamanism. It is fascinating, with a strong focus on healing.
Best regards, and may you and your wife stay healthy.
In my opinion the best work is done silently and discreetly. Working for pride isn't worth it, the whole "hey look i'm doing something helpful!" is a good feeling but if i continue down this path and learn enough to help people i'm going to come when needed and leave when i'm not.
If i were to help out a friend i'd probably ask that the incident not be discussed because of the risk of whatever the problem was coming back or the risk of being egotistical and going on about all the things i've done.
As far as i'm personally concerned (i cannot speak for other people on this matter) as long as you're helping people with the knowledge and wisdom you have then you're making a difference and who cares if no one else knows about it?
