No surprise - it's positive. We should hear from doc tomorrow I would think on what surgical approach he will take.
I'm strangely calm about it, I guess because it is what we expected - doc gave no indications it would be anything else. Bob took it well. He had a regularly scheduled appt with Medical Oncologist (chemo doc) today for bloodwork and talked to him about it. He said he still thinks his chances are good and they can always follow up with some chemo if necessary after the surgery. I'm glad Bob saw him this week, he is a very calming, caring doc - whereas our lead doctor, ENT Oncologist SURGEON (that should explain it) doesn't have much bedside manner.
We are anxious to learn the extent of the surgery and how much neck dissection there will be to get to the couple of lymph nodes affected. He gave us several possibilities when we spoke earlier this week. I called office this afternoon because if Med Oncologist doc has results - then doc who performed the biopsy has them & could have called us already! Ugh. Their office is normally very good about immediately calling, so don't know what's up with that.
Keep the prayers coming please.... Thanks!
