Hello all. I have 2 RAD treatments left and then they cut the apron strings and I wait 9 weeks for the PET scan. I just feel so left out in the cold. Yes I've read that this is normal but are there any other considerations I should be thinking about. This is not a major cancer hospital. I ;m thinking I should be looking for and ENT for a neck disection which I've been researching has a higher survival rate. It seems the optimal time for the surgery is six weeks post treatment because of something to do with the skin. I would be wasting that window. How many of you did some planning in the interim, consulting with other doctors and how many just left everything to fate? This is really affecting me emotionally, any advice?
