Just wanted to share with everyone out there that we got the results from my husband's first ct scan since he completed inductive chemo and imrt radiation. The radiation oncologist said there was no evidence of residual tumor and it looked fabulous. He returned to work this week after being off for 6 months. He's taking it easy only working about 28 to 32 hours for the first couple of weeks. Thank you all for your prayers, concerns and continued prayers. And a special thanks to soccerfreaks when I first joined and was concerned about the carboplatin 1/week during radiation. Your reply was so helpful and loved your sense of humor! Turned out he just had two because it messed too much with the platets and the radiation was the main thing, but his oncologist wasn't too concerned with the carbo since the radiation was the main thing; but he completed the 35 radiation treatments and is now beginning to get some taste back. Now we just both have to quit that nasty habit of smoking. He's done much better than me, but we both know we've been given a gift and certainly don't want to blow it. If any of you out there have any suggestions we'd love to hear them. Thanks again.
