Happy to report that at 7 months out "There are no definite findings to suggest residual desease, and there are no FDG avid cervical lymph nodes identified". My original diagnosis was T4N2 SCC of the vallecula between tongue and vocal cords.
My Rad/Onc gave me a referral to see a Lymphedema physical therapy specialist to help reduce the swelling in my chin and neck area. He also suggested that I start taking 200mcg of Selenium on a daily basis. He said that that there is a study currently in Europe that shows that selenium is effective in reducing edema. I'm going to give it a try and find a massage specialist.
Prayers and Smiles coming your way.
