My dad has 10 more rads to go and 3 more chemos. He has been one of the lucky ones and has improved during the treatment. So far he has only lost around 10 pounds and still able to eat, but nothing has a taste.
Can some of you let me know what to expect next as far as a time frame for appointments and scans. He already has an appointment arranged for his ENT on July 7th. Will he have him do a CT then. He how soon after treatment will he know if he has to have the lymph nodes removed and how soon will they do that.
Also, am I correct that he will wait to have a PET for awhile.
Also, one more question. I have heard people mention that they have added more rads. Why do they do that and what determines that.
They doctor told my dad that they tumor is much smaller and he can feel it a little still. Is that good.
