Ruled out after cat scan, Refered to surgeon to have lumps taken out.Needle biopsy came back with results of scc. After scope, diagnosed unknown primary, Biopsy under anesthia came back negative. Modified neck dissection with 2 lymph nodes involved.He removed around 13 lymph nodes and muscle. All came bach negative. Doc said stage 11 Started radiation Jan 2010.Ended beginning of Feb. 2 rounds of Erbutux, no other chemo. Loss of salvia,some taste for a litle while, seems to be better, and trouble swallowing.Just started experiencing these electric shocks.Will this get better over Time? Had a barium swallow on Thrusday. Doc said moderate narrowing. Will this get better over Time?
