When I started on this right tonsil c involving 1 lymph node thing the rads dr and med onc said I would lose 15 - 20 kgs, I thought this not possible at all, I was 82kgs (180 pounds) I ended up 57kgs (125 pounds) I am now coming up 6 months PT and am 67kg (147 pounds) and that has been in the last 4 weeks, if I keep going I will outdo my original weight which I was never happy with, but, since I got my taste buds back I just want to eat everything. I didn't have a PEG or anything while having treatment, just 2 sustagens and home made juice everyday. I was very fortunate and didn't get a sore throat either, I don't know why, just never happened and they would tell me every week that it was going to happen, I would tell them to stop telling what was going to happen and let my body just experience it and I would remain as positive as possible. Sometimes when you've got someone ramming down your throat (pardon the pun) how bad you are going to feel, you will just feel bad, so in the end they stopped telling me the negative stuff and focused on the good stuff, my cure.
Just another story to add to the list of many. I love this sight and I love reading all your posts. It's like you are my long lost family. xxxxxx
