3.5 months after my last treatmet / Stage III base of tongue cancer with 1 lymph node involved. Radiation and Erbitux HPV+
Today was my first PET scan and CT Neck and Head scan / all morning ...saw the doctor at 3pm after all testing was down and I got the all clear. Onc doctor said he "thinks it looks great" ....said the vocal cords show a little heat but that appears to be normal. Wants to take my tube out in two weeks. Told me not to use it! Told me we just want to get ot the 2 year mark then the five year mark....so eat right and do what you can to stay healthy!!!
I plan on staying on this board and I just want to say today is a very happy day for me and my family. I'm going home to tell my kids!!!! And this summer I intened on enjoying them like never before!
Thank you all for your help. I can't tell you how much help you all have bbeen during this process.
