I am writing as my husbands advocate (again and still!).
He is now 13 wks past treatment and although the PET scan showed the scc on the base of the tongue was gone, there was still some 'lit' areas in the lymph node and around the neck...we go to the ENT this week (3 weeks since the PET scan) to find out what the next step is or if he's still healing.
Although he has been able to eat a little bit, a few meals here and there, then the mucous starts flowing and his throat gets so sore he just goes back to the tube to get some relief and not exacerbate the problem any more!
Any help would be appreciated alot...
