Greetings all.  I've been away for a while, but check in to update almost everyday.

 

I'm now 3 1/2 months out of treatment.  1st scope check came back all clear on Dec 10th.  Yesterday I had my 1st PET scan and it also came back all clear.  I'm as happy as I can be.

Also had that darn feeding tube removed yesterday, after being in since 9-27.  (total weight loss was 55 pounds).  What a difference.  I'm eating very well and have gained 10 pounds since Christmas.  Still not much in the saliva department but I can't complain, at all.

You all have my best wishes.

 

George

Congrats....

Hang in there, saliva will return to some degree..., most is nearly 90 - 100% given time... It took nearly two years for both my saliva and taste to return pretty much 100%....

I'd imagine with your taste starting to return, saliva will be close behind.

that is amazing!  You must have really been hungry...LOL. 

Congrats on the clean scan, that is a huge relief, isn't it?  Also....getting that darn tube out starts setting us up to going back to normal....that was one of my favorite days.
