I wanted to ask a question if I may?
I think I have been doing great. I finished rads on January 20, 2012 and all of my scans and monthly scopes / finger exams have come back normal / NED.
I have been out cutting wood (to the tune of four cords now. A cord of wood is 4ft deep, 4ft tall and 8ft long) ....I feel great when I am outdoors cutting (and splitting) the wood. I just finsished hunting season, no, did not get my Elk or Buck :( ..... I was carrying a 60lb pack up hills and through the forest, I never felt better. I have my next scan on November 8th (CT w/ Contrast)
Here's my symptom lately. I feel "flushed". I feel like I have a low-grade fever, but when I check it I don't. My mouth looks good inside, I feel no lumps anywhere...but at the end of the day AND during the day I have this "flushed" feeling. My late evening I do feel somewhat tired (which one would think is normal) ...but that nagging "flush" feeling stays with me (which seems to be new). I feel a little scratchy in my throat, but I speak and eat normal as far as I am concerned. The biggest thing I have is this dag-gum choking sensation like someone is squeezing my throat...especially at the front part to the left where you button your top collar button.
Any feedback? Anyone else get this? And I guess the final question would be this: Once we start to feel as good as I have felt, would or could the rads still cause us to have a little "down" spurt?
Thanks all in advance.
