Hello everyone. I haven't posted for awhile but still think of everyone on this site. I think I just needed a break from thinking about cancer. Selfish I know, but it seems since my husband was diagnosed with cancer my emotions have been all over the place. But, I am glad to be back on the site and hope all of you new and old subscribers are doing well. I received just support from all of you and am always grateful for that and it feels good to be reading posts again . I think about you all everyday.
John is about 3 months out from radiation and chemo and 6 months out from surgery. All in all doing well. He returned back to work about a month ago but it still so exhausted at the end of the day. We had first PET scan last week. It showed a small spot on the left base of tongue near the eppiglottis. Of course I am worried about it but they said we will watch it as it may be reactive in nature. Also, this is really weird, an area on his gluteal area lit up. They weren't sure what to make of it but decided that it was nothing to worry about, so for now I am not going to get too upset about the results. That's the only way I can live now. He is today saying he noticed that the ability to open his mouth wide has diminished. Curious is this normal after radiation and what others have experienced. Should we let the drs know via phone call or just wait till next appt in a couple of weeks?
Anyway, sorry I have been away. I keep all of you in my heart. Hope you all are doing well and enjoying life. I am glad to be back on the site. I sort of feel like the prodigal son, so to speak,(except I am a girl and old) and hope you all will forgive my abscence. Missed all of you.
