My Doc's Nurse Called my wife earlier to let her know that the Doc did get good margins in my mouth, but there may be some uncertianties regarding the removal of all of the cancer in the neck. Of course my Doc is in the OR all day today. The final repot now makes the Chemo portion mandatory so my journey will endure longer. I am assuming it might make sense to go back in surgically and remove anything that might still be present? I would be all for it. With the cancer bing HPV+, I know the Chemo has the best chance.
At this time i am not even sure if my Doc has had a chance to review the final report. From a worry standpoint I may be putting the "cart in front of the horse."
Has anyone had any direct experience with going back in surgically combined with starting the now mandatory Chemo?
