Hi everyone!

I haven't been online much lately, but I thought I'd let folks know that there IS hope for for anyone who has gone through base of the tongue cancer. I know that at times, when you are going through treatment and even the months after, that you feel you will NEVER feel good again. Notice I didn't say "normal". lol! Because, really, what IS normal, anyway?

I had the CT's, MRI's and finally a biopsy, a couple of weeks ago. And was told last week that I was cancer free!! I was so happy, and excited with life again! I am a changed person. For the good, I might add! lol!! So now I have a full time job to do my hardest to stay cancer free. Meaning, prayer, healthy eating, and always having an upbeat attitude on life. To appreciate the very smallest things in life:)

P.S. I had 6 weeks of radiation last Sept. My last treatment was last Oct. 28. And had a few scares with the scans. Every scan showed up like there was something there. Hot spots. As the biopsy turned out, it was just scarring. Whew!! So please, if you are still struggling, there is so much hope out there for you!!

Take good care,
Cindy

Cindy,

That is fantastic news to hear. I am sooo happy that you are doing better. Yes, we do achive a new normal. But, little things don't bother us as much as they did before. Each day is wonderful, whether it be a rainy, damp, cloudy day, or a wonderful sunny day with a slight breeze. We enjoy them all.

My Best to You and Everyone Here

Cindy,

Sorry you had to go through the worry of the "hot spots". Glad you got the word that it's just scarring, even if you did have to go through more biopsies.

Cancer free is one of the best-sounding phrases I know of. Glad you heard it from the docs, and glad you shared it here with us.

Keep up the good work

Well good news is multiplying because my boyfriend Paul, went for his follow up this past week and them to come and see me. His radiation oncologist or whatever he is called, strictly a science dude, no bedside manner, but he knows his stuff, examined him, poking, prodding, sticking tubes, checking every oriface above the shoulders where anything could grow, and found................................NOTHING!!! cancer free!!

as for the distasteful side effects that keep him from eating solids, he said, "you will get better eventually".

needless to say, he was thrilled with that news, but would still love to actually eat something solid. eventually, i suppose.
