I should be two weeks into treatment by now; but due to some issues with lymph fluid (chyle)collecting in my neck and distorting the simulation scans, treatment is delayed. Last week, my ENT put a drain tube into my neck, along with yet another pressure dressing, and modified my diet. Tomorrow he will hopefully remove the tube and tell me that another surgery isn't needed. I've been patient so far, but I'm starting to lose it. I want to be on the other end of treatment. It's frustrating that treatment hasn't even started and with the possibility of yet another delay for another surgery and recovery time. Patience is needed. Wish me luck tomorrow and that my ENT leaves the exam room with all of his fingers intact.
