Just want to share some info for after cancer care - the doctors at Stanford Cancer Center are now checking the neck arteries. They have ordered an ultrasound of my neck to get a baseline. They want to check for scarring of the blood vessels due to radiation. They are also suggesting that I check with my internist to see about taking a baby aspirin daily. I finished my treatment March 2004. This is the first check up where they listened to my neck with a stethescope. Before, they were only looking for swollen nodes. I don't want to cause any panic, but survivor care is so new.
