Well I go for the big 3 today, ENT, Rad onco, oral surgeon. Saw my med onco yesterday. I stunned her with the Question "What can I do to help you?" Don't think anybody had ever asked her that before. If I am lucky I will get a PET done today and maybe cancel the dentist till after the surgery Friday. Onco couldn't understand why I had not gotten one yet. Thanks everybody for the help with the questions.

Hope everyone has a GREAT day,
Steve

You are on your way!!!!! As you go forward, there are, as you know, wonderful people on this site who have and are going thru what you are embarking on. They will give you strength that you cannot even imagine. They helped me learn and understand so much as my husband went thru and continues to heal from his treatment.
TODAY is a good day!!!

Hey everybody,

Just wanted to let ya know everything went well today. The docs gave me the impression
they think the c is in my right tonsil. Lets hope so. I saw all 3 docs and squeezed a PET
scan in there too!!!. The ent couldn't get a gen surgeon scheduled for tomorrow, but assured me the peg and port will be taken care of monday or tuesday. Thanks everybody for
your posts and prayers, they have been recieved and they have really HELPED ME! O.K.
get rid of this beast tomorrow----AMEN?

God bless
Steve

The PEG and Port getting done is a good first step. The PS results should be of great interest to you, Steve- that's the best test on where the C really is, and will determine a lot. Again- I would advise you insist that your Oto and Onco be aggressive. You have cancer, Steve, as we all do/did. Overkill is to error on the side of caution. That overkill brings with it what many of us know it does, and it ain't exactly easy street, but we are talking about the difference between life, disfiguring surgery, and...Insist, Steve. You know who treated me. I think I know overkill of the C, and nobody can convince me I was not treated correctly. You are in charge of you.

Believe.

Hi Kent

Thanks for everything. I am in Texas. My Oto's name is Ducic. He is a professor @ U.T.
Southwest med. ctr. I have to say I am very pleased with the way he has handled my case
so far. Everyone I have come in contact with has nothing but praise for this doctor.
I will heed your advice Kent and everyone that has posted me so far. That is why I am here,
for answers, encouragement and your prayers. So off I go to battle this beast and understand me clearly..... I do not know yet what I am in for nor how i will handle it all.
But I do know that I will make it!!!!! Thanks again Kent and everybody for your support.
I'll be talking to ya again soon.

Steve
