Been a while since I visited the site. Nice to see some of the old timers are still around but not so good to see so many new people. Looks like a lot of NED which is always encouraging. I recently had my one year eyes to thighs PET/CT which showed nothing unusual. No hotspots or abnormalities. Do most of you get the combination PET/CT? My tech was telling me that she didn't think they even sold the PET only machines anymore.
I don't know if this is related to scchn but I was diagnosed with shingles, something I never thought about. Now I wish I had gotten the shot for it. It is painful and lasts for weeks, I think I am on week 3 or 4 and I have taken more pain meds for this than I ever did during my scchn treatment. This is clearly a situation where my immune system was compromised, not unlike being HPV+ or possibly getting scc. I think it is finally getting a little better.
