well had an out patient surgery today. They check out my throat and bioposed the 4 cm growthh on the base of my tongue. They also put in a feeding tube. Last week they did a pet scan and the cancer is only in my base of tongue and 4 lymph nodes on the right side of my neck and 1 on my left. No cancer anywhere else. They are calling this stage 4. I meet with the Dr. Next week and go over my treatment. He has already told me that I will have Chemo for 6 weeks. Either 1 time each week or 1 time (heavy dosage) once every 2 weeks (3 times) at the same time I will start radiation. 33 session 5 times a week. I meet with the doctors who will do the radiation and chemo on the 29th. So I expect treatment to start some time on the first. I know many things to expect. The burning. Hard to eat. teeth hurting. Miracle mouth was. Creams for the skin. I guess...kinda want to know what to expect day one of treatment. The small things. Guess with a tube sticking out of me now....kinda makes it even more real.
