Just sitting here this morning in Texas snowed and iced in. Very unusual for Fort Worth,
It happens every couple of years. Temp 13 - wind chill -11. So I finally get a chance to post again. For all you newbies, I used to be a regular on here. I had scc right tonsil Sage 4, W/ mets to lymph nodes. Diagnosed 13 months ago and went through Right side neck dissection, Tonsillectomy, 7 teeth pulled and more dental work done before my port and peg were installed. Then 7 weeks of chemo- weekly Cisplatin and 5FU and 33 daily rad treatments. I wrote all that to try to reassure those of you that are just being diagnosed or are beginning treatment or whatever point you are at, this battle can be won!!
I have been given a clean bill of health by all my doctors and had my port removed last Friday!! The last of the cancer paraphernalia finally gone!!!! My chemo doc said, oh you are going to be one of those long term survivors, and I told her You sure do talk sweet.
That got a big smile from her. I am doing great, I have some side effects but nothing I can't LIVE with.
So to all my friends here who helped me through this, a great big THANK YOU!!!, and to all who are somewhere in the beginnings of this journey, stay strong and know, THE C CAN BE BEAT!!!!
Best to everyone,
