6 weeks sure has gone by in a flash since I started my latest treatment for my recurrance of SCC. After my Chemo, I go for my first of my every 6 week CT Scan with contrast to see if the treatment is working.

Of course would love to hear "your tumors have dissapeared", but will also take anything from they are shrinking to they have not grown more than 20% and of course no new tumors, so I can stay on the trial.

SCANXIETY has officially set in.

Hope to have some good news to post by Tuesday.

For my 4 month ENT exam. (Dr. Diaz) I just had a CT scan on Monday and Head and Neck was all clear. Battling a recurrance in my Lung and Mediastynum and prelim CT read was "looks like tumors are responding to treatment."

Dr. Adkins is my Onco.

What a great team of Doc's at Siteman.

Before hitting the post button I whispered a prayer for you. If I may share, I was out hunting by myself (as well as with my son) last week ...and I said a prayer for you, barefoot Bob, Denis, Nick, Katie and some others that have not had the best news to share lately ... thinking of you and the others often on here ... I consider my H&N fellow warriors as family.

I want NED for you Mike!!!!

Best,

Tim

Dr Diaz partnered with Dr Nussenbaum for my 19 hour surgery. My original ENT at St Lukes said there is no one else he would have do it.

Good to know. He also did a friend of ours who sounds like he pretty much had same surgery as you. He had his mandible replaced with fibula over a year ago. Small world.

Nussbaum is also a 1st class surgeon. Dr. Diaz is one of the young and upcoming transoral robotic gifted surgeons.

We are lucky in a small city to have such great medical resources. Now if only the Rams could play like the Siteman Doc's operate.

Best

LOL, but I don't think that will ever happen with the Rams. But, hope springs eternal.
