Eeeeeee Good first post-treatment scoping!

I went to see my ENT yesterday. Luckily, like turning on a light switch, right at exactly the 2-week mark (2 weeks ago Thursday was my last rad treatment), I woke up feeling a bit better and bale to talk. The doc said that two weeks post treatment might feel worse than it was during and man was he right! By yesterday wasn't all that bad. I was able to cut back the pain meds by half and I even had a voice!

I was fearful that the scope would be painful for the first time or couldn't be done, but nope. Went down smooth as pudding. "No cysts, tumors, lesions or masses," the doc said. "No scaring, radiation burns or tissue damage. There's a lot of inflammation, but that's to be expected. I would say it looks better than average." YAY!

So the big test for me is the PET/CT on Dec 2nd to confirm I am CANCER-FREE and then it's a scoping every 3 months for the first year and an annual PET/CT. Just monitoring. But at least I've cleared the first hurdle in good shape.

May you all also get good news with your next appointments!!!

Sounds a little like Lake Woebegone, where all the children are above average.
Seriously, that's good news.
