Due to not being a smoker and heavy drinker, original ENT and U of M Hospital(ENT also)assumed HPV. Now we just got a call that it's negative for HPV from original ENT??? UofM (ENT)is going to order another test.
They say this can change the treatment plan now. We understood the HPV having good prognosis.
We realize most doctors go after treatment and not the cause, but just very frustrating.
Still waiting for confirmation that the "hot spot" from Pet (prior to treatment) in stomach is nothing. If it was HPV derived, there was a good chance the stomach is not cancer. Scope for that will be done Monday and possibly biopsy and results later for that. Hoping it is just an Ulcer flare or something minor. All this waiting is pretty tough.
Anyone have the same thing happen to them?
