Surgerically removed tumor back of mouth, left wrist flap, 30 days rad: Dec 2008;
Recurred Oct 2009 flap issues due to previous RAD treatment. Received an additional 30 days rad, 30 HBOT and 6wks Carboplation.
Recurred again 7/2010. Very close to carotid artery; can't have any more Rads; doctor says he cut out all that was safe (can't cut too close to artery--can't make tissue flap for support of artery).
Surgery 8/23; no other treatment pending. Currently waiting pathology report; did they cut deep enough to provide clear margings? If not, doctor putting out emails for options to ONC's.
I'm in Hawaii, can't travel to another state easily.
PM is fine...........
