Well, I had my swallow survey and I am aspirating. Very disappointing as I was just to the point where I could down an entire insure and was working on trying new foods daily. Now I'm on a big STOP until I meet with my therapist. Add to this my Onc told me today that he wants to do a CT scan next week. I asked why he was doing one so early (we will be close to 6 weeks post treatment) and he said hi likes to do it at this point to look for anything residual that might be there and require surgery. Told me that the odds were minuscule that I have any but it freaked me out anyway. So, here we are, struggling to recover from treatment and keep my pain in check, mucous is back, mouth super dry and the depression monster is starting to follow me around. Happy Birthday Me.
Sorry about the downer message but it's what I'm feeling and this is the only place I can share and not hide these feelings.
