Hi everyone. I spoke with the rad oncologist today and he recommended rads of the mucosa (all my throat because of unknown primary) and the site where they found nodes in my neck and the other side of my neck where there was no evidence of disease.
I addition he's recommending 3 courses of chemo (beginning of rads, middle, and end - not sure yet what poison). And he wants me to gain weight. I also got a call for an appointment for a PEG. Oh, I also have to see the dentist ASAP. Ugh.
So all the things I wanted to avoid are going to happen. The slight bit of bright news is that I tested HPV+ which is a positive prognostic factor (extrapolating the data).
All this is supposed to start probably mid-to late February. I'll keep you posted.
