We just today had another series of needle biopsies performed at the VA. The pathologist who did the first ones 2 weeks ago said there was no indication of cancer in the 3 samples they took but the ENT didn't trust his info and sent us for another series.
All this after 7 weeks of radiation and 3 sessions of chemo which he finished 2/22 so we're 4 months out. But thank god, he's finally eating by mouth and the mucositis has subsided ALOT so that's a real blessing. I'm wondering if they do the neck dissection will it set his throat back in healing (the mass is on the left side of the neck).
Any thoughts out there???
