Hello everyone, my name is Dennis
This site was highly recommended to me by one of the nurses who is treating me.
I was diagnosed with NPC on 2/22/13. TC3,N2,M0.
My treatment at this time is 35 Radiation treatments and 12 Chemo treatments.
So far I have undergone 13 Rad and 3 Chemo treatments.
I am having trouble with my vision ( among other things). I am seeing double. It is by far the worst side effect so far.
I was wondering if anyone else here has experienced the same problem ?? The odd thing about this is my vision went haywire on my way to the treatment center for my first radiation treatment which was on a Monday. I did not mention it to my Doctor at the time thinking it would clear up.
Four days later at my Friday treatment I mentioned it to my Doctor and he told me that the cancer sometimes swells when being treated and it may be putting pressure on a optic nerve. I think it already had hit a nerve prior to the first treatment but no matter I suppose. The problem is there.
I asked the Doctor if he has had cases where a patient had regained their vision after treatment. He was very vague about it.
Any thoughts ????
Thanks for any replies/comments !
PS: Is there a spell check available ? Mine won't work on this site for some reason.
