I am sorry your PET results did not come back as good as you had hoped. I was wondering why you hadn't posted the results, because I know you had your CT about the same time Pat had his PET. I was very worried and checked often for your results. I wanted to ask you, but figured that if you wanted to tell us, you would. You are a wonderful member of this board and are always giving a lot of love and support to others. I hope that now you will accept our love and support for you.
Just to let you know, Pat had stage II supraglottic cancer in 2008. He was treated with chemo radiation. He got the all clear in December 2008. In February of 2009, he noticed a lump on his neck. Sure enough, it turned out to be cancer. He ended up having involvement in four lymph nodes and there was extracapsular spread. He had a radical neck dissection (positive margins) along with chemo reirradiation. His 14 month PET in November came back good. So - I know that a neck dissection is not a pleasant thing and is not what you had hoped for, but there is great hope that it will get the cancer once and for all. Pat is doing very well and his quality of life is good. We never know what tomorrow holds, but we are hoping and praying for good results for you. You will get through this and we will all be here to help and support you.
Please take care and keep us posted.
