Dave finished up with his last cisplatin Monday, 6 more rads and he is finished with treatment, and on the road to recovery. YaHoooo. He has done really well except for the thick mucus, and nausea. He has lost only 16 pounds with the feeding tube so far. Wanted to let everyone know how he is doing so far. Hope all are doing well as Dave! Has appointment with ENT Oct 19th to check out his throat, please remember us in your prayers that all looks good!! I'll update when know something more.

Chemo finished is a good step forward, up next the rads. Glad to hear Dave has done quite well. I completed my chemo and rads on the same day and first started to feel better about 4-5 days after that, hope Dave does also. Good thoughts your way for the 19th. Cheers,

Jimbo

Great news...I'm sure he can't wait to get started back on the road without the rads and chemo...

Best,
John

Cross it off the list of things to be done. Very satisfying. Finished Cisplatin...no small feat. Many cannot finish the treatment because the side effects are so bad. Kudos to Dave for handling the Big Guns all the way through.
Hope time moves swiftly for the final 6 rads.
Good energy coming you way!!!

Yes, it does sound like he's doing well for the stage he's at.
With six rads left, he's going to be cooking for a while, but he's coming into the home stretch.
That's a good thing.

That is great news. I have 8 Rads and 1 Cisplatin left. I should ring out on the 19th or 20th. I am glad to hear Dave has not had to suffer all of the side effects, but having to suffer one or two is bad enough.

I will be thinking of you and Dave when you ring out.

God Bless!!!
